Cinnamon Maple Cream Filled “Oatmeal” Raisin Sandwich Cookies

Cinnamon Maple Cream Filled “Oatmeal” Raisin Sandwich Cookies
  • Sumo

This cookie recipe is almost exactly like the chocolate chip cookie recipe I’ve been making for years. I got it from a Clean Eating Magazine before I was paleo. After going paleo, all I really had to alter from the original recipe was the sugar since it was already grain free. It makes amazing chocolate chip cookies, so why not add some spices and raisins and coconut to turn it into something like an oatmeal cookie?

I made these for a party so the good thing was that I didn’t get to eat them all. The bad thing was…I didn’t get to eat them all. They were totally yummy. There are so many dessert recipes I want to try out so I often will try new things rather than making stuff over again. These, however, will be made again for sure.

Ingredients

The Cookie Part

  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup grated( dried, shredded unsweetened)  coconut
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup raisins

The Cinnamon Maple Cream Part

  • 1/4 cup butter (or ghee)
  • 2-3 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 Tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • 1 teaspoon coconut flour
  • 1 Tablespoon melted coconut oil

 

Instructions

For the Cookies

  1. Dump everything together in a bowl and mix well.

  2. It will seem runny when you are first mixing it together, but it gets thick quick.

  3. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto a parchment lined baking sheet.

    Ready for the oven

  4. Bake in a pre-heated 175 C (350 F) oven for 10-12 minutes. They are done when they are slightly brown on top.
  5. Remove from the oven and squish them down a little while they are still hot. I used a square of parchment paper placed over the cookie and then pressed a glass down on top of that. You can skip this step if you aren’t going to make sandwich cookies.

For the Cream Filling

  1. Mix everything together in a food processor and put in the fridge to thicken for 15-30 minutes.

Putting it all together

  1. Cool the cookies completely before spreading on the filling.
  2. Spread a spoonful of filling between two cookies and mush them together to make a sandwich.
  3. You can also just use the cream as frosting on top to make frosted cookies.
  4. The cookies are great without any cream as well.

  1. Lisa, these look so delicious!
    I was wondering though, do you think dried shredded coconut could be used in place of grated coconut, or would that mess up the moisture balance?

    • Hi Kimberly,
      Yes, dried and shredded is what I used. I should go and note that in the recipe. I use shredded and grated interchangeably and I shouldn’t. Be sure to stop back and tell me how they turn out if you make them 🙂

      • Thanks! I will let you know how they turn out.

  2. Just delicious 🙂 !!!
    Thanks for the share

    • Hi Marie,
      Thanks! So glad you enjoyed them 🙂

  3. Do you think I could sub coconut oil for butter in the frosting? Dairy free here 🙁 Thanks!

    • Hi McKenzie,
      Yes, I think that would work just fine but you would need to keep the coconut oil very cool. It gets melty and liquid pretty quick. You might also try coconut butter (creamed coconut). Hope they turn out for you 🙂
