Lemon (Calories same as original recipe)
- -Add zest of one lemon into filling
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius. Line and grease a cookie tray.
- Combine all ingredients into a bowl for the ‘cookie’ recipe. Using a spoon, scoop out mixture onto the lined cookie tray. Press down using a fork or your fingers to form a cookie shape (I got around 20 cookies as i made my cookies nice and thin)
- Place in the oven and bake until golden brown (takes between 10-12 mins).
- While cookies are baking, place ingredients for the filling in a bowl and combine well.
- Once cookies are ready, take out and allow to cool. Cookies must be cooled fully before trying to add filling as filling will then melt!
- Pair up each cookie with a partner, and spread or pipe 1-2 tbsp filling onto one cookie. Top with desired toppings mentioned above, then place the second cookie on-top. Repeat until all cookies have fillings! (if you have any left over filling i like to enjoy it with some fresh fruit- a delicious high protein snack!)
- Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer!
