THIN MINT RAW OREOS W/ COCONUT CASHEW CREAM FILLING


As a kid I had an oreo obsession...could not go a day without one. So..

Epipahny #1.. I had yet to create my favorite pastime. Epiphany #2 why not make a baby with Americas other fave cookie? THIN MINT RAW OREO was born.
I n g r e d i e n t s 

C r e a m  F i l l i n g 
1.5 cup cashews, soaked for 6-8 hours or 1 hour soaking in almost boiling water, then drain
3 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 cup coconut cream (cream off the top of a coconut milk can chilled OVERNIGHT in refrigerator -- I use either @thaikitchenor @wholefoods 365 brand)
2-3 tbsp of the leftover liquid in coconut milk can
1 tbsp melted coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
pinch sea salt 

D i r e c t i o n s 
Drain cashews & pour everything into blender. Blend until creamy and thick! Pour into a container and place in fridge to "set." It will continue to thicken in fridge ( the longer It chills the more It will thicken! You will have leftover filling- I use for daily smoothies or fruit topping!
**Make the cream FIRST and let chill in refrigerator for 3+ hours, or until it thickens into a cream** 

C o o k i e   I n g r e d i e n t s 
3/4 C pecans
1/2 C almond meal
2 tbsp almond four
10 dates ( soaked in hot water 10 minutes to soften up )
1/3 cup cacao powder
3 tbsp melted coconut oil
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla
pinch sea salt (if you choose to forego thin mint layer you can add 1 tsp peppermint oil here or in filling).

In a food processor add pecans, almond meal, almond flour. Process until a flour like consistency! Add all other ingredients. Process until all combined. You dont want your mixture too "wet"... if too dry add 1 tsp warm water at a time. 

On a parchment lined baking sheet (something that can fit in fridge/freezer) roll the cookie into small balls & flatten until desired shape. Place in freezer to chill ( 15 minutes).
Once chilled make your Oreos by spreading a layer of coconut cream in between two cookies. Repeat until no more cookies.
