- 2/3 +1/3 C almond flour
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 4 Tbsp. coconut sugar
- 4 Tbsp. raw cane sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 Tbsp. melted coconut oil
- 3 Tbsp. almond milk (or any non-dairy milk alternative)
- 1 Tbsp. almond butter
- 1 1/2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
- 1 carton of al Gelato Chicago gelato
Preheat the oven to 380 degrees F. Mix wet ingredients together in a large bowl. Mix together wet ingredients in a separate small bowl, then slowly pour and stir them into the dry mixture. If the resulting mixture is still too dry, continue to add almond milk until a desired doughy consistency is reached.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place tablespoon sized balls of dough on the sheet. Place in the oven and bake for 7 minutes, then let cool. Once the cookies have completely cooled, spoon two tablespoons of gelato onto the back of one cookie, and cover with another cookie. Enjoy!
Yield: 24 cookies/12 sandwiches
