If you’re looking to whip up a little something sweet for your Valentine, you have found the right recipe. Pleasing to all the senses, these cookie sandwiches taste as delicious as they look. With a pretty pink, raspberry filling between two tasty chocolate cookies, one bite is enough to make anyone fall in love.
Prep time: 10 minutes, Servings: 6 cookie sandwiches
1/2 cup whole nut (any nut would work, we used brazil nuts)
1/2 cup whole pumpkin seeds (or more nuts)
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp mesquite (or carob or more cocoa)
1/4 tsp stevia, liquid (or 2-4 tbsp maple syrup)
about 1 tbsp water (only if using stevia)
2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch sea salt
Place whole nuts and/or seeds into a food processor. Pulse till crumbly, then add in remaining ingredients. If using maple syrup as sweetener slowly add it in. the cookie batter should come together easily without being to wet.
Roll out cookie batter onto a cutting board and find your heart shaped cookie cutter and begin to make heart cookies. Batter will be a little more delicate than traditional baked cookies. Just take your time and have fun! You should get 12 heart shape cookies, although it will depend on your size cookie cutter. Just make sure you have enough cookies for a top and bottom layer. Set cookies aside.
1 medium to large banana
1/2 cup raspberries (we used frozen that we let come to room temperature a little)
4 -5 tbsp coconut oil
Place all ingredients into a blender. b=Blend till creamy. If you cannot have coconut, you can use cacao butter instead to get filling hard. Pour filling onto a cutting board and place in freezer to get hard.
Once filling is set and hard, cut out with same heart shape cookie cutter as cookies. Place one heart cookie down on plate. Next top with pink heart filling and then place your top heart cookie on top. Repeat till all your cookie sandwiches are made. Enjoy!
Warning you will get a little dirty making these cookies, but that is the fun part! For more pictures and how-to steps check out our original recipe here.
Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
