Raw Oreo Easter Eggs and Bunnies

It’s Easter! And Easter brings chocolate eggs, carrot cake, hot-cross buns and more chocolate. 🙂

I posted a recipe for raw carrot cake squares a few days ago. If you haven’t seen it, here is the link.

These raw Oreo chocolate eggs and bunnies are made from oats, dates, almond pulp, cashew nuts and maple syrup. They are raw, vegan and gluten-free.

RAW OREO EASTER EGGS AND BUNNIES  

Makes: makes about 10 eggs and 5 bunnies

Ingredients for the cookies

– 1 cup almond pulp

– 1 cup medjool dates

– 1 cup gluten-free oats

– 2 tbsp raw cocoa powder

– 1 tsp vanilla extract

Ingredients for the vanilla filling:

– 1/2 cup raw cashew nuts

– 2 tbsp coconut nectar

– 2 tbsp melted coconut oil

– 1 tsp vanilla extract

To make the mixture for the “cookies”: 

– In a food processor blend the dates, almond pulp, cocoa powder and oats on a low speed for about three  minutes or until it forms a stick dough. It it’s too dry, add more dates if too wet, add more oats.

To make the vanilla filling: 

– Soak the cashew nuts in water for approximately 4 hours.

– In a high speed blender mixed the drained nuts, maple syrup and vanilla essence until smooth. Add a little bit of almond milk or water if it’s too thick.

– Add the coconut oil and process until well combined.

– Set aside in the fridge for about 4 hours or until thickened.

Spread the vanilla filling evenly onto half of your “cookies”, and gently press the remaining cookies on top of the frosted ones. Allow it to set in the freezer for an hour.
