A homemade, healthier alternative to the classic American snack, the Oreo cookie - count me in. If you have read my Cookie Dough Pop recipe post, then you will know that I have recently downloaded the Hippie Lane app and have been enjoying their recipes. If you want to try them out for yourself, then here's what you will need to do:
The biscuits. You will need: 3/4 cup (90g) pecans, 1 cup (150g) medjool dates, Pinch of salt, 1 tsp pure vanilla extract, 3 tbsp cacao powder. The Filling. You will need: 1 cup cashews (150g) soaked for 2+ hours, 1 tbsp coconut oil, 1 tbsp maple syrup, 1 tsp vanilla extract
Process the biscuit ingredients in a food processor until it reaches a dough-like consistency. Roll mixture into a large ball and flatten on a cutting board with a rolling pin. Cut in circle shapes with cookie cutter and refrigerate until firm. You can freeze to speed up this process. Drain cashews and blitz the filling ingredients in the food processor. Mixture should be creamy and smooth. Spread filling onto chilled cookies and sandwich together. Store cookies in the fridge. This recipe makes 9 raweos.
These are so soft in texture with the filling being more coconut-y than tasting like vanilla, so maybe not completely an Oreo, but it is certainly tasty none the less. *You may want to double up on the ingredients.*
