Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
225g buckwheat flour, plus extra to dust
100g ground almonds
a tiny pinch sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
4 tablespoon maple syrup
2 tablespoons almond butter
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1 tablespoon almond milk
2 large eggs
10 pitted medjool dates
2 tablespoons almond butter tiny pinch sea salt
200g dark chocolate, melted

Method

  1. To make the recipe vegan you can substitute the eggs with flax ‘egg’, an excellent vegan alternative. Just mix 2 tablespoons flaxseeds and 6 tablespoons water in a bowl and let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Put the buckwheat flour, ground almonds, salt and baking powder in a bowl and stir. Add the maple syrup, almond butter, coconut oil, almond milk and eggs, giving it all a good stir – you may want to use your hands. It will be a sticky dough.
  4. Dust a work surface with a little buckwheat flour and then tip the dough out. Gently, using your hands or a rolling pin, smooth the dough out until it is 3–4 mm thick. You can add more flour if it’s still too sticky, but don’t be too liberal or you will end up with a tough cookie.
  5. Use a round 7 cm cookie cutter to cut out the dough and use a palette knife to carefully pop onto the prepared tray. Bake for about 10 minutes, until lovely and golden. Leave to cool completely on a wire rack.
  6. Meanwhile, for the caramel layer, simply blend the dates, almond butter, 1 tablespoon of water and sea salt together in a food processor, until smooth-ish and creamy.
  7. Once the biscuits are cooled, spread them with a layer of caramel. These then need to set in the fridge for 30 minutes. Then either dip the biscuits in the melted chocolate, or spoon the chocolate over and then leave to set. They will keep in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
