Chocolate Hazelnut Grahams

Chocolate Hazelnut Grahams

We travelled over to the U.S.A. recently (I live extremely near an American border crossing) and restored a specific brand name of cookies, including specific little employee fairies inhabiting a suspiciously chocolate-equipped treehouse/cookie factory. Anyhow these cookies were great. Too great. Thick cut graham-like crackers covered in fudge-y chocolate. Extremely basic goodness flavour-wise that sadly DID NOT equate to an easy active ingredients list.

I consume for enjoyment initially, however I could not assist I thinking up a more wholesome variation of this cookie. There would be coconut oil for fat, hazelnuts for body (and to release a little bit of a nutella ambiance), healthy quantity of garnishes for enjoyable.

And all of it exercised! I made my own hazelnut and coconut flour/meal in the mixer and tossed the dough together in the food mill. You might grind the flour in the food mill too, conserving yourself some additional dishes/appliance use. When grinding the nuts/coconut, you’e searching for the consistency of almond meal. A couple of stops brief of nut butter works. It needs to hold together when you pinch it, however still feel dry.

The dough will in fact look like a failure right from the beginning. You’ll question how this sticky goop will end up being cookies– cookies that will in fact be enjoyable adequate to consume! Flatten it out, stick it in the oven, possibly cross your fingers a bit and whoa! Spiced vanilla hazelnutty-molasses goodness that will take a bath in chocolate and get all smothered in sea salt, sliced nuts and cacao nibs. Oh. Yes. All that great things for wholesome tea time.

NOTES: These will not taste precisely like graham crackers! They’re a bit more pillowy, nutty and complex. Having stated that, these would be remarkable with a smooshy, molten marshmallow on top.

1 cup + 2 tablespoon hazelnut flour (approximately 1 cup of nuts ground in the food mill)

If it isn’t clumping together, include hazelnut or coconut meal in tablespoon increments up until it begins forming a ball as you pulse the maker.

Get rid of the blade and scrape the dough onto a piece of parchment paper. Location a huge sheet of saran wrap on top of the dough and flatten the dough out with a rolling pin. You desire it relatively thin, around a 1/4 inch density. Transfer the parchment sheet with the dough to a flat pan big enough to hold all of it.

I just recently did fight with a box of Cheese-Its and handled to just consume 3). Regretfully, I dislike hazelnuts, however I question if there’s a method to make this with coconut and pumpkin seeds, or both? Reply
