Pink Heart Cookie Sandwich from Purely Twins

photo(23)Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
I am pawsome,
And so are you!

I LOVE Valentine’s Day! Not only do I get to wear pink all day, but I also get to eat yummy treats (preferably pink and shaped like hearts) and select a special Valentine from my 2,100+ social media fans. This past week has been tough, especially with all the tests I had to undergo at the vet’s office. I deserve a little TLC after all that blood work! You guys know me, though. An appointment with the veterinarian will never dampen my mood. Because of this, I started the celebration two days early by spending the night away from the Bratty Brothers. There weren’t any pawdicures where I was staying, but it’s never too late! Today, the party continues. I hope this recipe (Valentine Heart raw cookie sandwiches) inspires Mother to surprise me with her pawmazing baking skills! Enjoy!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup whole nut (any nut would work, we used brazil nuts)
1/2 cup whole pumpkin seeds (or more nuts)
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp mesquite (or carob or more cocoa)
1/4 tsp stevia, liquid (or 2-4 tbsp maple syrup)
About 1 tbsp water (only if using stevia)
2 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch sea salt

Directions for cookies:

Place whole nuts and/or seeds into a food processor. Pulse until crumbly, then add in remaining ingredients. If using maple syrup as sweetener, slowly add it in. The cookie batter should come together easily without being to wet.

Roll out cookie batter onto a cutting board, find your heart shaped cookie cutter and begin to make heart cookies. Batter will be a little more delicate than traditional baked cookies. Just take your time and have fun! You should get 12 heart shape cookies, although it will depend on your size cookie cutter. Just make sure you have enough cookies for a top and bottom layer.

Set cookies aside.

Pink filling ingredients:

1 medium to large banana
1/2 cup raspberries (we used frozen that we let come to room temperature a little)
4 -5 tbsp coconut oil

Filling directions:

Place all ingredients into a blender. Blend till creamy. If you cannot have coconut, you can use cacao butter instead to get filling hard. Pour filling onto a cutting board and place in freezer to get hard.

Directions for assembling cookie sandwiches:

Once filling is set and hard, cut out with same heart shape cookie cutter as cookies.

Place one heart cookie down on plate. Next top with pink heart filling and then place your top heart cookie on top. Repeat till all your cookie sandwiches are made.
