Raw Oreo Type Biscuits

Raw Oreo Type Biscuits

Posted 2015-10-02 by finyfollow

I first had these raw vegan biscuits at an organic shop that I go to, and they kindly gave me the recipe.

However I had to make them twice as the first time I think they may have given me the wrong quantities for the chocolate biscuit base!

It turned out beautiful the second time, and although I am not vegan, I like some of the raw foods.

This one is extremely rich, despite not being so sweet and having no added sugar, and one biscuit was quite enough.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes (plus soaking cashews)
Cooking Time: 0 minutes
Makes: 9 - 10 biscuits

Ingredients
For the biscuit
90 g pecans
150 g pitted dates (Medjool are the best)
1 tsp pure vanilla powder or pure paste
3 tbsp cacao powder

For the filling
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla powder or paste
1 cup cashews

Method
  • I always buy broken cashews as these are cheaper and better for cooking.

  • Soak the natural cashews in water for at least two hours.


  • Put the biscuit ingredients in a food processor.


  • Process until it becomes like a paste or dough like consistency.

  • Roll the mixture into a ball with your hands.


  • Flatten this on a board with a rolling pin.


  • Cut the biscuit bases with a circular biscuit cutter, and put in the fridge till they are hard.



  • Drain the cashews and, in a food processor, add these plus the other filling ingredients.

  • Blitz till the mixture is creamy.


  • Spread the filling on one of the biscuit bases.


  • Sandwich two biscuits together with the filling in the middle.


  • Serve.

  • If you have any leftovers, keep them in the fridge.

  • They are delicious and quite rich -far nicer than the over sweet, shop bought Oreo!
