Makes 14 cookies

For the cashew cream filling:

100g smooth cashew butter

½ tablespoon vanilla powder

1 tablespoon coconut palm sugar

For the cookies:

110g flaxseed

150g ground almonds

100ml date syrup

25g melted raw coconut oil

¼ teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons carob powder

2 tablespoons cacao powder

½ tablespoon vanilla powder

1 tablespoon coconut sugar

To make the cashew cream filling:

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.

To make the cookies:

Put all the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Using your hands, mix together well until all combined and sticky.

Using your hands, roll out the mixture into small cookie shapes. To do this, make a big marble-size ball of mix and then roll and press into a cookie shape. You need to put a lot of pressure on them with your palms to make them nice and flat.

Once all the mixture has been used and all the cookies have been shaped, using a knife, spread the cashew cream on a cookie and place another cookie on top. Repeat until you have used up all the mixture and filling.
