  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon cold brew concentrate optional
  • ½ cup cassava flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda


For the Hazelnut Spread

  • To make the spread, puree all the ingredients together until a uniform and smooth nut butter forms.
  • Set in the fridge until firm to the touch.
  • Scoop out quarter-sized balls and set in the freezer.

For the Cocoa Cookies

  • While waiting for balls to set, start making the cookie dough.
  • Preheat your oven to 375℉.
  • Beat together butter and maple sugar until fluffy.
  • Scrape down sides of the bowl and add egg, vanilla, and cold brew concentrate.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together cassava flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and baking soda.
  • Slowly incorporate the dry ingredient mixture into the butter mixture.
  • Scoop out 1 ½" balls of dough and push the frozen hazelnut butter balls into the center, wrapping them completely in the cookie dough. Repeat this for all cookies and stick in the freezer again to firm up.
