I find myself feeling downright silly right now. “Why?” you might ask. Because there I was, intensely brainstorming over what on Earth my next post should be about, while happily munching on my go-to gluten free, high protein VEGAN salad with a super special & super easy 4-ingredient tahini salad dressing. (Yes, “super” seems to be the word of the day.) A vegan salad that is incredibly delicious, but has for whatever reason not yet found its way on here. And neither has the tahini dressing. It wasn’t so much a ‘Eureka!’ as a facepalm moment.

Prepare to be blown away by how absolutely scrumptious these “Bounty” chocolate coconut sandwich cookies are. Crumbly decadent chocolate cookies meet flavour-charged coconut filling in this gluten, dairy and refined sugar free treat, which features coconut in three different forms!

“Bounty” Chocolate Coconut Sandwich Cookies - Prepare to be blown away by how absolutely scrumptious these “Bounty” chocolate coconut sandwich cookies are. Crumbly decadent chocolate cookies meet flavour-charged coconut filling in this gluten, dairy and refined sugar free treat, which features coconut in three different forms!

I don’t like recipes. Which is ironic, considering that I have a food blog, and that at the end of this post, you’ll find a recipe (for super duper delicious “Bounty” sandwich cookies… just so you know) that I’ve written. But it’s true, nonetheless. It’s almost like very time I’m reading (and considering following) a recipe, there’s this voice at the back of my head muttering: “Just who do you think you are, telling me what to do. Bah, noooo thank you.” It doesn’t help that almost every time I have followed a recipe, something went spectacularly wrong.

“NUTELLA” HAZELNUT CHOCOLATE SANDWICH COOKIES {gluten, dairy, soy & ref. sugar free}

Gooey homemade Nutella filling joins crumbly hazelnut cookies in these “Nutella” hazelnut chocolate sandwich cookies. Because two cookies are always better than one, and who in their right mind would ever say no to homemade Nutella?

“Nutella” Hazelnut Chocolate Sandwich Cookies - Gooey homemade Nutella filling joins crumbly hazelnut cookies in these sandwich cookies. Because two cookies are always better than one, and who in their right mind would ever say no to homemade Nutella?

As a scientist (in the making?), I like equations and nice, neat logical arguments. So here’s today’s favourite: if one cookie is great, two cookies are better, and if you put a filling in the middle, you have a winner. Another logical argument: everyone loves Nutella (fact), and everyone loves cookies (fact) – therefore it follows that everyone will love (to the power of about a thousand) these “Nutella” hazelnut chocolate sandwich cookies. Fact. Case closed. (And these are gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free sandwich cookies, how amazing is that?!)

They have it all – the taste, the textures, the smell… and you will want to make them again and again. And again.

Where do you find your inspiration? I find it in ridiculously random situations, like sneaky snack attacks, where you’re not actually hungry for food, but for taste, and textures, and smells. And so you walk around your kitchen, and take a bite of this and that, and you realise that anchovies go amazingly well with walnuts, and you decide that the combination of chocolate and pecans is heavenly, only to be further improved with a pinch of oats. Of course, you are incredibly proud of yourself for discovering such groundbreaking flavour combinations – never mind that they have been around for eons.
