oat and coconut chocolate
- ½ cup (45g/1½ oz) rolled oats
- ½ cup (40g/1½ oz) desiccated coconut
- ¾ cup (185g/6½ oz) almond butter
- ¼ cup (30g/1 oz) almond meal (ground almonds)
- ½ cup (75g/2¾ oz) CSR coconut sugar
- ¼ cup (60ml/2 fl oz) pure maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
chocolate ganache filling
- 100g (3½ oz) dark (70% cocoa) chocolate, chopped
- ¼ cup (60g/2 oz) almond butter
- Preheat oven to 160°C (325°F).
- Combine oats, coconut, almond butter, almond meal, coconut sugar, maple and vanilla in a bowl and mix well to combine. Roll heaped teaspoons of mixture into balls and place, about 3cm (1 inch) apart, on a tray lined with non-stick baking paper. Flatten slightly.
- Bake for 10–12 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool on tray.
- While biscuits are cooking, make the chocolate ganache filling. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Once melted, stir through the almond butter. Chill for 10 minutes or until it becomes a spreadable consistency.
- Sandwich the cooled biscuits together with the ganache and store in an airtight container in the fridge. Makes 14 cookie sandwiches

These are easy to make and delicious. Mixture did seen a little dry but once well rolled they are fine. The chocolate ganache is a must. Don’t leave it out! They also ticked all the boxes for assorted friends who are Vegan, GF and Dairy Free. Many thanks
