We've all heard of sandwich cookies but I bet you've never tried this combination before! Chocolate & Raisin is a delicious pairing, there's something so yummy about the juicy sweet raisins together with the rich chocolate and works so well in this recipe.

The cookies are made with ground almonds and oats with sweet raisins throughout as well as a hint of cinnamon and vanilla, then we sandwich the cookies together with a smooth, rich, decadent chocolate ganache filling. The best super satisfying treat to take to school, college, uni or work!
