Ingredients

Honey Cookies

Hazelnut Filling

Decorative Topping

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • If the hazelnuts are not roasted and peeled, roast them for 5-6 minutes at 350F and peel them afterward.
  • Ground the hazelnuts with a blender until you have a smooth mixture.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix the eggs, honey, melted coconut oil, and the vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients. Mix the flours, starch, baking powder, salt, and hazelnuts.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir well.
  • This will form a dough, which might be a bit oily. If the dough feels too sticky, leave the dough in the fridge or freezer for about 10 minutes.
  • Form small cookies (around 1 tablespoon from the mixture) and place them on baking paper.
  • Flatten them gently on top.
  • Place the cookies in the oven at 350 F. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes.
  • In the meantime, prepare the filling. You can also use a pre-made spread such as Nutella.
  • Mix the hazelnut butter with cocoa powder and the honey. Add ground hazelnuts in order to thicken the mixture. It will be a bit hard to work with but it needs to have a thicker consistency.
  • Once the cookies are done and cooled completely, spread the chocolate filling on the cookie with the help of a spoon or your hand - it should be thick enough to form it with a hand. Place a second cookie on top and squeeze gently.
  • In a separate bowl mix the hazelnut butter and cocoa powder for the decorative topping.
  • Gently dip the cookie sandwiches in the chocolate spread and then sprinkle with ground hazelnuts.

Notes

    • This recipe should create around 36 cookies (or 18 sandwich cookies after that)
    • Wait until the cookies have cooled down completely before you touch them as they will be very soft.
