At Evolve Fit Wear we are some super lucky ladies! This is no truer than when the gorgeous ladies from Nibs & Greens make exclusive recipes for us (and you), and then bring in their treats to share with the office. We got to taste test these Valentines Treats, and boy, did they not disappoint!
Chocolate Raspberry Sammies
Gooey chocolate. Sweet raspberries. Coconut cream. All combined into one cookie sandwich just in time for Valentine’s Day. It’s chocolate heaven this month but that doesn’t mean you can’t indulge the healthy way! These Chocolate Raspberry Sammies are total decadence while being vegan, gluten-free, refined sugar free, and now at the top of your list for what to bake next.
Makes 20 cookies, 10 sammies
4oz. dark chocolate, melted
2 flax eggs (2 Tbsp. flax meal + 6 Tbsp. water)
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup cacao powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp. creamy almond butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips or more dark chocolate, chopped
Preheat your oven to 350˚ and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Melt the dark chocolate using a double boiler.
Make the flax eggs in a small bowl and set aside.
In your food processor, combine the almond flour, coconut sugar, cacao, baking soda, and salt.
Add the almond butter and mix again – the mixture should resemble a rough cornmeal texture.
Add the melted chocolate, flax eggs, and vanilla and mix to combine, careful not to over mix.
Stir in the chocolate chips and scoop the cookies onto the baking sheets, flatten slightly.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, switching racks halfway through. The cookies should be slightly soft and pillow-y when done. Let them cool completely before assembling the sammies.
Raspberry Coconut Cream
3/4 cup coconut butter, softened
1/2 cup frozen raspberries, defrosted
We recommend making this as the cookies are cooling.
Place softened coconut butter in a bowl.
Pour defrosted raspberries over the coconut butter and gently swirl together, set aside until the cookies are completely cooled.
Place a large spoonful of the Raspberry Coconut Cream on the flat side of one cookie and gently sandwich the cream with another cookie.
Continue until all sammies are made.
Store the sammies in your fridge and enjoy them this Valentine’s Day!
