Pink Dragon Fruit Jam

INGREDIENTS
Cookies
  • ¾ cup cashews
  • ¾ cup buckwheat
  • ½ cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • ½ cup maple syrup (to taste)
  • ½ cup coconut butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp Just Blends pink dragon fruit powder (use berries if you don’t have this)
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • Rice malt syrup, to taste
  • Vanilla bean powder, to taste (optional)
  • Water as needed
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 180C and line baking tray with baking paper OR preheat dehydrator to 45C.
  2. In a food processor or blender, grind the cashews, buckwheat, coconut and chia seeds until it forms a flour.
  3. Add maple syrup and coconut and whizz until just combined. Add some water or milk if the mixture is too dry.
  4. Place a piece of baking paper on a flat surface (bench top or chopping board). Roll out mixture with a rolling pin until 1 cm thick.
  5. Use a cookie cutter to desired shapes (I used a 6cm cookie cutter). Cut a heart shape in half of the cookies. Re-roll remaining dough and repeat until all dough has been used up. Make sure than half of the cookies are full circles and the other half have hearts cut in them.
  6. Use a spatula to carefully place cookies onto baking tray or dehydrator tray.
  7. If baking, bake in oven for 15 minutes flipping half way. If dehydrating, heat for 8 hours.
  8. Meanwhile, for the jam: Mix all ingredients in a small bowl with a fork and set aside to thicken.
  9. To assemble: Spread the jam on the full circle cookies and sandwich with the heart cookies.
  10. Keep in an air-tight container and enjoy!
