Scale

Ingredients

  • For the Flour double Chocolate nut Cookie:
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used hazelnuts). Plus extra for topping
  • 2/3 cup dark chocolate chips (Enjoy life brand is vegan/gluten free). Plus extra for topping
  • 1 cup no stir nut butter (almond butter or peanut butter). *see notes for nut free version)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 c to 1/2 c cocoa powder (use more for richer taste)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • optional Hazelnut extract for a “nutella” taste.
  • For the Filling:
  • 1/2 cup creamy nut butter (I sound that almond butter or sunflower seed butter work best)
  • 4 tbsp melted butter (or coconut oil for dairy free)
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 cup powdered sugar or my sugar free powdered sugar. See notes.

Instructions

    For the Cookies

    1. First grind up your chocolate chips and nuts in a food processor or blender. Transfer to a bowl.
    2. Add in the rest of your ingredients and mix well to form a cookie like batter.
    3. Let batter sit in fridge 1-2 hrs.
    4. Remove batter from fridge. Preheat oven to 350F
    5. roll the batter into golf ball size balls. Place on greased cookie sheet.
    6. Next, using your hand or the flat end of a measuring cup, press the cookies flat. I usually coat the measuring cup with a bit of oil so it doesn’t stick to cookies when pressing.
    7. this made around 30 – 36 cookies or so.
    8. Sprinkle topping of each with extra nuts and chocolate chips.
    9. Bake for about 15 -17 minutes or until edges are crispy. Check at 15 minutes to see progress.
    10. Remove from oven and set aside.

    for the chocolate nut filling

    1. Place 1/2 cup of your creamy nut butter in a mixing bowl. add in your butter or oil. Beat on low.
    2. Continue to mix/beat on low and slow add in your powdered sugar, cocoa, and vanilla.
    3. Beat until smooth.
    4. If batter gets to thick, add in a touch of coconut milk to thin out.
    5. Scoop 1-2 tbsp of chocolate nut filling on flat side of a cookie. Pair with another cookie to make a cookie sandwich.
    6. Serve or store covered in fridge if you are going to serve later.
    7. This made around 18-20 cookie sandwiches. You can adjust the cookie size if need be. Just roll bigger balls first. But you will then need to adjust cooking time.
