We aren’t going to lie, if you make this recipe you WILL be dreaming about it for weeks after! These sandwich cookies are a decadent, delicate treat for a special occasion or just because. You can’t go wrong with a rich cacao cream sandwiched between two chewy coconut cookies.

Ingredients

 

For the macaroons:

2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes

2 tsp ground spiced tea (I used 2 bags of bengal spice)

1/2 tsp vanilla bean powder

1/8 tsp sea salt

4 dates, chopped

1/4 cup raw agave nectar

2 tbsp coconut butter, softened

2 tbsp water

For the cacao cream filling:

1/3 cup raw cashews, soaked for at least one hour

1/4 cup coconut butter, softened

3 tbsp raw agave nectar

1/2 tbsp cacao powder

1/4 tsp vanilla bean powder

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

pinch of sea salt

 

 

Methods/steps

 

For the cookies:

1) In a food processor, process the coconut flakes, ground tea, vanilla bean powder and salt until combined.

2) Add the remaining ingredients and process for a minute or two until well combined. The mixture should stick together when pressed between two fingers. If it seems too dry, add more water.

3) Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, scoop the dough onto a dehydrator tray and gently flatten with the bottom of a glass (you should get 12 small cookies). Dehydrate the macaroons at 105 degrees for about 6 hours or until desired texture is achieved. They should be crisp on the outside but still chewy on the inside.

4) Spread a small amount of the filling (recipe below) on half of the cookies and press another plain cookie on top to form a macaroon cookie sandwich.

For the cacao cream filling:

1) Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth.
