Valentine’s Day is possibly my favourite occasion to create themed recipes before.. and yes, that is because it makes is acceptable for me to douse everything in pretty pink rose petals and cultivate an ultra girly, rosey instagram feed.
These cookies are slightly soft, sweet, chewy and filled with the most delicious cashew caramel filling. Just little bites of heaven. They’re also completely plant based, have a very minimalistic ingredients list and are free from gluten and refined sugar! I’ve used dates to bind everything together and provide the main element of sweetness in this recipe, which I love because they give that subtle caramel hint of sweet flavour and help to create a nice chewy cookie texture.
I think these look really cute for a special Valentine’s themed treat; but of course, would also be perfect for any time of year really. You could also switch up the filling for whatever you fancy and get a little creative. I think jam or another flavoured nut butter would also be delicious!
