For the cookies:

3/4 c. almond flour

1/3 c. black cocoa powder

1/3 c. granulated Swerve/sweetener

2 tbsp. coconut flour

1 tsp. kosher salt

1/2 tsp. (gluten-free) baking powder

Make cookies: In a large bowl, mix together almond flour, cocoa powder, Swerve, coconut flour, salt, and baking powder. Add oil, egg, and vanilla and mix until combined. Shape into a disc, then wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 350° and line a large sheet tray with parchment paper. Lightly dust a clean surface with cocoa powder and roll out dough ¼” thick. Cut out cookies with a 2″ round cookie cutter.

Place cookies on prepared baking sheet. Bake until slightly firm to the touch, about 14 to 16 minutes. Let cool.

Make filling: In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat butter until smooth. Add Swerve and beat until combined, then mix in vanilla.

Spread filling on one side of cookie and place a second cookie on top. Repeat with remaining cookies..
