Gingerbread cookie sandwich

ChocSandwich1

We love cookie sandwiches and have posted a few on our Instagram over the last couple of months like these chocolate dipped cashew butter cookies with our Vanilla & Coconut. We really wanted to try some using our Chocolate flavour and thought a chewy gingerbread might work a treat! The recipe for the cookies is gluten free (thanks to the use of buckwheat flour) and vegan. If you want a fully vegan version I think they would work perfectly with our Irish Salted Caramel flavour too!

Gingerbread (GF/DF) Nobó Cookie Sandwich 

Ingredients

  • 1 & 1/4 cups buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 2 tablespoons water

Directions: 

– Preheat oven to 175c and line a large baking sheet with greaseproof paper.

– Mix flax and water in a small bowl and set aside for a few minutes.

– In a large mixing bowl, beat together the coconut oil, coconut sugar, molasses, maple syrup, vanilla, and flax mixture until smooth.

– In the same bowl, add in the dry ingredients one at a time (ginger, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and flour) until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

– Refridgerate for about 20mins – you can skip this but it’s harder to roll the dough.

– Portion up the dough into small balls and roll in a bowl of coconut sugar (optional).

– Carefully flatten ball slightly with hand and leave space between them.

– Bake for 10 -12 minutes (the less time the softer they’ll be)

Cookies3

– Cool on a cookie tray before sandwiching with a scoop of chocolate frozen goodness between.
