Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine flax meal and water. Let stand 10 minutes.
  3. Combine flour, cocoa powder, oats and baking soda in large bowl; set aside.
  4. Beat Becel with Oat Beverage margarine with sugars in another large bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in flax meal mixture and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mixture just until blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet, 2 inches (5 cm) apart. Recipe will yield about 48 cookies. Bake 10 minutes or until edges are just set. Do not overbake.
  6. Place baking sheet on wire rack and cool for 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire rack and cool completely.
Coconut Cream
  1. Beat Becel and non-dairy cream cheese in large bowl with electric mixture until creamy.
  2. Add icing sugar, coconut extract and vanilla extract, and beat until fluffy.
  3. Stir in shredded coconut.
Assembly
  1. Once cookies have cooled completely, spread about 2 tablespoons (30 mL) coconut cream on flat side of one cookie and top with another cookie, pressing down until cream comes just to the edge. Repeat with remaining cream and cookies.
*Substitution: Use 2 eggs instead of flax meal and water. Cookies will be soft when baked as directed. For a crisper cookie, bake an additional 2 minutes. Be sure to use finely shredded coconut so it incorporates into the cream.
