Grain-Free Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Editor’s Note: This recipe is courtesy of one of our honorary CNE program students, 17-year-old Macy Diulus. Macy is a dynamo who writes and photographs her own food blog, Paleo Crumbs, and has published an e-cookbook, Paleo Crumbs Fall Favourites. We can’t wait to make these heavenly cookies!

Chocolate Sandwich Cookies are a classic childhood favourite for many. Some of us prefer the filling, others favour the cookie, and some of us simple adore both! Whichever cookie stereotype you are, you will be sure to love this allergy-friendly version. This gluten-free and grain-free chocolate-y cookie is filled with a yummy frosting and pairs amazingly with a glass of nut milk or – even better – a chai nut milk.

These cookies are made with culinary nutrition goodness by using raw, magnesium-rich cacao powder and coconut oil (hello healthy fat!), and are sweetened with maple syrup, which is packed with healthful minerals such as potassium, iron and zinc.

I hope you enjoy these nostalgic sandwich cookies. They are also great filled with your favorite dairy free ice cream or even some “nice cream” (frozen banana blended into an ice-cream like texture). Enjoy!
