It may not technically be a biscuit BUT this slice is amazing with a cuppa. Chocolate and coconut go hand in hand perfectly and this slice takes it to another level! It’s rich, creamy and gives you a massive chocolate hit.
This recipe for choc caramel volcano cookies is AMAZING and you will be very happy to know that it’s nowhere near as many calories as it looks!
Ingredients (makes 12 cookies)
2 cups wholemeal self-raising flour (240 grams)
1/2 cup cacao/cocoa powder (50 grams)
1/2 cup maple syrup (125 mls)
1/2 cup coconut oil, softened (120 mls)
1 free-range egg (50 grams)
1 cup pitted, dried dates (170 grams)
1/4 cup coconut cream (60 grams)
1/4 cup water (62.5 mls)
Preheat oven to 190C / gas mark 5, line a baking tray with baking paper.
Combine flour, cacao/cocoa powder, maple syrup, coconut oil and egg together.
Mix with your hands to ensure it is mixed well and comes together to form a dough.
Roll dough into 12 balls and place onto prepared tray, then press down lightly with your thumb to flatten slightly.
Bake for 10-15 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on the tray for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Make the icing by placing the dates and water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to the boil to soften dates, once the water starts to evaporate add the coconut cream.
Reduce to a simmer and stir the mix every couple of minutes.
Once the date sauce has thickened slightly, remove from the heat and use a stick blender or food processor to form a thick caramel icing to spread over your cookies.
1 cookie is 1 serve. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 4-5 days.
