Vegan + Grain Free Nutella Cookie Sandwiches


These are perfection.  Just perfection.  Especially on a snowy Sunday where all I want to do is cuddle up and watch movies.  These cookies will not disappoint.  I promise.

Vegan + Grain Free Nutella Cookie Sandwiches

Inspired + adapted from My New Roots

Make your own Nutella here.  (Before adding in chocolate reserve 4 tbsp. of plain hazelnut butter.)

-Chia Gel-

2 Tbsp. Chia seeds+2 Tbsp. honey+ 4 Tbsp. water.  Stir well and let sit for 15 minutes to form gel.

-Wet ingredients-

4 Tbsp. melted coconut oil+ 4 Tbsp. hazelnut butter+ 1/2 cup coconut sugar+ 1 Tbsp. Vanilla.  Mix well.

-Dry Ingredients-

2 cups rolled oats ground in food processor+1/4 tsp. sea salt+ 1 tsp. baking soda. Mix together.

Pre-heat oven to 350. Combine Chia gel into wet ingredients and mix together.  Pour over dry ingredients and fold until sticky dough forms.  On a baking sheet with parchment paper roll out  level, tbsp. size balls of dough.  Using a drinking glass flatten dough into round disks.  Bake for 8-10 minutes and let cool completely.  I did this in two batches.  Once cookies are cool, spread Nutella on one side of cookie and place another cookie on top.  Eat them, love them and share them with your friends.  And little people too!
