For the Filling
Preheat oven to 180c and line two baking trays with parchment paper.
In a blender, blend oats into a fine flour. Empty into a large mixing bowl and combine with Pulsin Maca Supershake powder and cacao powder.
In a microwavable bowl combine the peanut butter and maple syrup and place in the microwave for 45 seconds, until the peanut butter has melted slightly. Pour this into the bowl of dry ingredients, add the milk and combine until the mixture forms a dough.
Empty onto a work surface and using a rolling pin roll to your desired thickness of cookie. Using a circular cookie cutter cut the dough into approximately 26-30 cookies and place them on the baking trays.
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes before taking out and leaving to cool completely.
Combine the ingredients for the filling and roll into small balls before delicately pushing the balls down on 1/2 of the cookies. Place the other cookie on top and press down carefully. Enjoy!
