Raweos
Serves 6

Raweos, these healthy version of the Oreo are just as good and so easy to make. You can make the biscuit dough in advance and store it in your fridge but the beauty of this recipe is that you can bang it out quick smart. Freeze the biscuit rounds once cut to speed up the process if like me, every second counts in your day.

Biscuits

  • 1 1/2 cups pecan
  • 2 cups medjool dates
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 6 tbsp cacao powder

Filling

  • 2 cups cashews (soaked for 2+ hours)
  • 2 tbsp cold pressed virgin coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp 100% pure maple syrup
  • 1 vanilla bean

Method

Biscuits

First remove all pits from your dates, then for the vanilla bean make sure to cut open long ways in half with a sharp knife, with the back of your knife scrape out the little seeds. Place all ingredients into food processor, blitz till everything comes together. Roll out onto baking paper (spray oil onto your bench before placing baking paper down to avoid movement). Using a small round pastry cutter, cut biscuits out, and rolling the remaining dough back into a ball, and repeating the process till all your dough is used up. Place the cut out biscuit rounds onto fresh baking paper and place in the freezer for 10 minutes to set.

Filling

After your cashews have soaked for up to 2 hours drain them and place in food processor along with all other ingredients. Blitz till a smooth creamy consistency. Place in piping bag or in a bowl to spoon out later. Place in fridge.

Once your biscuit is hard and set, spoon or pipe your cream onto one biscuit round, and place another biscuit round on top to form your Raweo. Pace yourself, these can be quite addictive.
