3/4 cup almond flour
1/2 cup gluten-free flour
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/8 cup rice malt syrup
1/4 tsp Suncore Foods® Rose Salt
1/2 cup cashew nuts
1/3 cup coconut butter
2 tbsp rice malt syrup
2 tbsp coconut milk
1/2 tsp vanilla bean extract
1/4 tsp Suncore Foods® Aqua Blue Spirulina Supercolor Powder
200g dark chocolate, melted
2 tbsp coconut oil
1. Preheat your oven to 180 celsius. In a large bowl, combine almond flour, gluten-free flour, coconut oil, rice malt syrup and salt, mix until well combined. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
2. Roll out the dough into a rectangular shape. Use a sharp knife to cut out rectangles about 1 1/2 inches wide by 2 1/2 inches long. Lay cookies on prepared baking sheets and bake for approximately 15 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden brown. Let cool completely before assembling.
4. To make the filling — In a food processor, add cashew nuts and process until grounded, then add the coconut butter, coconut milk, rice malt syrup and vanilla. Process until smooth and creamy. Spread filling onto half of the cookies (on the bottom side). Top with the remaining cookies, then place in the freezer to chill. Add coconut into melted chocolate, stir gently until smooth. Take a chilled cookie bar and carefully coat it in the chocolate, then put it on a lined baking tray. Place the tray in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes until set. Enjoy!
