Raw Oreos

vegan, GF
👬 12 cookies 🕝30min + sooking

These raw Oreos are so good, and they require zero cooking!  Their nutty creamy center is nutrient dense, and the chocolatey cookie is packed with healthy carbs and fiber.  I like to keep a batch of these on hand in my fridge for when cravings strike.  I have a big sweet tooth.  Especially for chocolate.  These raw oreos are chocolatey, chewy, and have a sweet creamy center. They’re great for snacks, dessert, and even for breakfast! (Because who doesn’t love a little bit of chocolate in the morning…)


For the cream
130g raw cashew
2 tsp water
1tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 tbsp date syrup

For the cookies
100g dates (pitted)
50g oatmeal
180g almonds
120g raw cacao powder 

½ tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)

To make the cashew cream, soak the cashews in water to cover for 4 hours. Drain.

To make the cookies, soak the dates in water to cover for about 15 minutes. Drain. Add the cookie ingredients in the order they appear, bit by bit, to the blender. Blend well until the mixture is finely ground and forms a dough. Remove the dough from the blender, place it on a sheet of parchment paper and roll it out using a rolling pin. Using a cookie cutter or the lid of jar, cut the dough into small circles. Place the cookies on a plate and, when you have cut all the cookies, put the plate in the fridge.

Wash out the blender, then fill with the ingredients for the cashew cream and mix until creamy. Transfer the cream to a small bowl. Remove the cookies from the fridge, spoon a teaspoon of the cashew cream onto a cookie and top with another cookie so that the ‘sandwich’ is formed. Repeat until there are no cookies remaining.
