Lightly toast almond flour in a dry skillet or pan over medium heat, until fully golden and fragrant (2-4 minutes). This is very important taste-wise, so don't skip!
Transfer toasted almond flour to a small bowl, and mix in cocoa, sweetener to taste, coffee (optional) and salt. Add in butter, mix until thoroughly combined. Press about 1/3 of the mixture into cupcake liners or silicon molds and leave the remaining 2/3 as 'crumbs'. Place both in the freezer while you make the vanilla cream.
Add coconut milk, sweetener and salt to a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk until the sweetener has dissolved and the mixture is smooth (doesn't take too long). Transfer to a mixing bowl and allow to cool completely.
Add heavy whipping cream or cold coconut cream to a large chilled bowl and whip until soft peaks form. Mix in vanilla extract and the cooled coconut and sweetener mixture. Once the mixture is smooth, fold in the frozen 'cookie' crumble.
Pour your cookies 'n cream mixture into the prepared molds and freeze until solid. Allow to thaw for 10-15 minutes before indulging.
*Please see section on sweeteners for deets and possible subs. And if using xylitol, make sure to be careful if you have a pup around the house, as it’s highly toxic to the little guys! 🐕
**In terms of coconut milk brands, I’ve recently discovered Roland’s Organic Milk and I’m in love. It’s sooo creamy even right of the can, and has a much milder flavor than any other brand I’ve tried. Honestly cannot recommend it enough (can you tell I’m obsessed?!). Plus, it whips beautifully.
Please note that nutrition facts were estimated per fat bomb, assuming you make 6 out of a batch.
