Method

  • Step 1

    Make sure you soak your cashews in cold water for at least 4 hours (or overnight).

  • Step 2

    Start by making the biscuits. Pre-heat the oven to 160 degrees celsius.

  • Step 3

    Mix together the buckwheat flour, oat milk and baking powder in a bowl. Mix everything together well until a cookie-dough mixture forms.

  • Step 4

    Melt the coconut oil then add this to the mixing bowl along with maple syrup, vanilla extract and water. Mix everything together well until a cookie-dough mixture forms.

  • Step 5

    Roll the dough out on a floured surface and cut into round biscuit shapes. Making sure you make an even amount.

  • Step 6

    Place these biscuits on a lined baking tray and bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes. Set aside to cool.

  • Step 7

    To make the vanilla cream, start by draining and rinsing the soaked cashews. Place them in a food processor along with the coconut cream, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Blend until the mixture is really smooth

  • Step 8

    Once the biscuits are completely cool spread some of the cashew cream on to the bottom side of one biscuit and a layer of jam onto the bottom side of another biscuit. Sandwich the two together. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
