Almond coconut cookie sandwiches

Cookies
1 cup almonds
½ cup oats
½ cup desiccated coconut
¼ cup coconut oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup
¼ tsp baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt

Pulse almonds in a food processor or high speed blender until finely ground, then add oats until ground. Add to a mixing bowl then add in the remaining ingredients and mix well. Roll teaspoons of dough into balls and place on a baking tray, then flatten the cookies slightly. Bake at 170C for 10 minutes until lightly golden. Let cool completely before removing from the tray.

Chocolate cashew cream
¾ cup cashews (soaked for at least 2 hours)
1/3 cup coconut oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup or rice syrup
2 tablespoons cacao powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch of salt

Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth.

Raw chocolate
¼ cup coconut oil
¼ cup cacao
1/8 cup maple syrup
½ tsp vanilla

To assemble: Spoon a scoop of cashew cream onto a cookie and sandwich with another cookie. I then dipped them in chocolate and added some extra coconut, but both are optional! They cookies are even great just on their own!
