Preparing the cookies

- Preheat the oven to 350F. Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

- Melt the almond butter.

- Whip the melted butter, sugar, maple syrup, molasses, plant milk, and vanilla with an electric hand mixer.

- Stir in a large bowl the rolled oats, almond flour, gluten-free oat flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and ginger until the whole thing turns into a thick cookie batter.

- Scoop up the dough and roll it into balls. Arrange and press lightly to flatten onto the baking sheet.

- Place the cookies about 2-3 inches apart on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 8–9 minutes.

-The cookies will then still look a bit soft, and that’s okay; let them cool completely on a wire rack.

- Once they are at room temperature, assemble them together with the filler cream.

This simple Vegan Coconut whipped cream recipe is delicious and easy to make. It is a perfect match for all sorts of vegan desserts.

Vegan Coconut Whipped Cream Filler

We don't use regular white or confectioners' sugar to make the cookie filling. 

We use instead Organic coconut sugar which doesn't undergo the whitening process using bone char from animals like regular white sugar.

Besides, regular white is ultra-refined, stripping it of all nutrients, which makes it quite unhealthy.

An alternative to the vanilla cream filler is our Vegan Chocolate Pastry Cream for a chocolate-flavored twist to our oatmeal cookie pie recipe.

How to make coconut powdered sugar

You need one cup of organic coconut sugar and one tablespoon of arrowroot powder or tapioca flour.

Keep this quick and easy vegan Cool Whip recipe at hand. It is ideal for all types of desserts because of its creaminess.

It is the perfect whip when you need a creamy topping.

Enjoy a delicious vanilla flavor made with only three ingredients!

Vegan Coconut Whipped Cream Topping Ingredients

Coconut Cream: Look for full-fat cream rather than milk. For this recipe, you need that extra creaminess.

Powdered sugar: using it instead of a liquid sweetener gives the whipped cream more structure and makes it pipeable. 

Vanilla: adds the flavor everyone loves.

Cool Whip Preparation Instructions

Chill one can of coconut cream for at least eight hours, preferably overnight. Avoid freezing to hasten this process because it doesn't work.

Open the cold can and remove the thick cream from the top, leaving the water in the bottom.

Add ½ Tbsp of vanilla and ¼-⅔ cups of powdered sugar to a bowl. Start with 1/4 cup and add more as necessary.

Stir by hand or with the electric mixer only until creamy.

Only mix for a few seconds to ensure that everything is blended. If you do it for too long, it may start to separate slightly, and you'll have to start again with a new can.

assembling the cream pies

Once the cookies cool down, it is time to assemble the pies.

The easy way to do this is to use a small scoop, but you could use two spoons instead.

Flip one-half of the cookies over and spread 1 to 2 tablespoons of frosting in the center of each one.

Place another cookie on top, then squish the two together until the frosting reaches the edges.

It's time to dig in and devour your chewy cookies. You deserve it.

Storage

If, by some miracle, your cookies survive the day, store them in an airtight container on the counter for up to three days.

 If needed, you can stick them in the fridge for up to 5 days. For long-term storage, the freezer can do the trick for up to 2 months (it's doubtful they would last that long in any home).
