  • Cookie Dough
  • 1 cup spelt flour or mix of rice and buckwheat flour or use gluten free mix
  • 1 cup ground hazelnuts
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter or use dairy if not vegan
  • 2 pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup agave or maple syrup
  • Walnut Filling
  • 1 cup ground walnuts
  • 1/3 cup plantbased milk
  • 2-3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla powder or essence
  • Chocolate Glaze
  • 1/2 cup cocoa butter
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Make the cookie dough. Mix together flour, ground hazelnuts and salt in a bowl.
  • Add butter and syrup and knead briefly just until you get a soft dough that sticks together. If it's too wet or sticky, add more flour. But not too much, the dough has to stay soft.
  • Wrap in cling foil and leave in fridge to chill for about 15 minutes
  • Make small cookie dough balls, place them on lined baking sheet and flatten with bottom of a glass. If it is sticky, use some flour when rolling the balls to prevent them to stick to the glass
  • Bake on 160 celsius or 320F, on fan assisted mode
  • They are done when the edges start to brown. Leave them to cool down before assembling
  • Prepare the filling: place ground walnuts and vanilla in a bowl and add hot milk and syrup. Mix until you get smooth cream. It will be runny but it will become thicker as it cools down
  • Use approximately a teaspoon of filling for each cookies sandwich. Let the cookie sandwiches to firm up a bit when assembled. The filling will firm up and make the cookies not come appart.
  • Prepare the chocolate glaze: Place cocoa butter in a bowl and put it on a pan with boiling water to melt. When melted, add rest of ingredients and mix until smooth.
  • dip top of each cookie sandwich in chocolate and decorate with one hazelnut or walnut.
