Sep 14, 2022

Aren’t these the cutest little buttons?! These cookies are flavored with Rooibos tea, and make a yummy afternoon tea snack.

Serves: 20

Prep & Cook Time: 45mins (+ standing and cooling)


  • 200g traditional rolled oats
  • 40g desiccated coconut
  • 40g coarsely chopped pecans
  • 1 ½ tsp. ground ginger
  • ½ cup (100g) coconut oil, melted
  • ¼ cup (90g) honey
  • ½ tsp sea salt flakes

Milky Tea Cream

  • 4 english breakfast tea bags
  • 1 cup (150g) raw cashews
  • 2 cups (500ml) boiling water
  • 1 tbsp honey


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F. Grease two large oven trays; line with baking paper.
  2. Make milky tea cream.
  3. Process oats, coconut, pecans, ginger, coconut oil, honey and salt for 2 minutes or until very finely chopped and thoroughly combined. Roll mixture out between two sheets of baking paper until 5mm (1/4-inch) thick. (The mixture will look a little bit dry but will hold together during cooking.) Using a 5cm (2-inch) round cutter, cut out 40 rounds, re-rolling as necessary. Using a palette knife, transfer cookies to trays 1cm (1/2 inch) apart.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes or until golden and a cookie can be pushed gently without breaking. Stand on trays for 10minutes; transfer to wire a rack to cool.
  5. Pipe approximately 2 teaspoons of milky tea cream onto half of the cookies; sandwich with remaining cookies.

Milky Tea Cream

  1. Place 3 of the tea bags and cashews in a medium bowl.
  2. Cover with the boiling water; stand for 20minutes.
  3. Strain over a bowl; reserve 1/3 cup (80ml) of the tea liquid.
  4. Discard soaked tea bags.
  5. Open remaining tea bag, measure ½ teaspoon tea leaves; discard remainder.
  6. In a small food processor, blend measured tea, soaked cashews, ¼ cup reserved tea liquid and honey until a smooth icing consistency; if too thick, blend with remaining 1 tablespoon reserved liquid.
  7. Spoon mixture into a piping bag fitted with a 1cm (1/2-inch) straight nozzle. Refrigerate 1hr.



Store filled cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
