Chocolate Filled Vanilla Sandwich Cookies

If you have followed my blog for a while and/or downloaded my ebook you will have noticed that I love a good cookie recipe! I used to be obsessed with Oreos before I was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease so sandwich cookies are one of my favourites to create. I came up with this recipe in collaboration with Cocofina using their coconut oil and coconut sugar. Coconut sugar is more of a moderate FODMAP so not everyone can tolerate but I seem to be fine with it so hopefully you are too!

These gluten free, vegan and refined sugar free cookies are filled with a simple but so tasty chocolate filling because I find it hard not adding chocolate into all my recipes!

Makes 10 sandwich cookies


For the cookies:

90g melted Cocofina coconut oil

100g buckwheat flour

75g gluten free oats (processed to a flour)

75g quinoa flour or rice flour

90g Cocofina coconut sugar

60g ground flaxseed/linseed

Pinch of salt

1.5 tsp pure vanilla extract

3 tbsp unsweetened almond milk

For the filling:

70g melted Cocofina coconut oil

3 tbsp cacao powder

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

2 tbsp maple syrup


  • Preheat the oven to 160oc and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper
  • Mix all the dry ingredients for the cookies together in a bowl before adding the vanilla, coconut oil and almond milk
  • Mix everything together with spoon, then press the mixture together with your hands to form a crumbly cookie dough
  • Break of pieces of the dough then roll them between your hands before pressing them down on the lined baking tray so that they are about 1cm thick
  • Bake the cookies for 20-25 minutes, until they are starting to brown
  • Leave the cookies to cool on the tray for 5 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack until completely cooled
  • To make the filling simply whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl until smooth
  • Leave the bowl to one side until the filling has thickened enough to spread (approximately 10 minutes)
  • Place spoonfuls of the filling in the centre of 1 of the cookies then gently press down the second cookie
  • Leave the cookies to set for 5 minutes before storing them in an airtight container
