Vegan Chocolate Cookies
I am SO excited by these cookies. They are so easy and quick to make and have been a firm favourite when we've needed something sweet during this lockdown.
They can also be made gluten free by creating the oat flour with gf oats.
Ingredients (Makes 8):
200g oat flour (100g oats into a high-speed blender)
120g coconut sugar (If you like it slightly less sweet then 100g would do)
20g chia seeds (Optional for a little crunch)
2tsp baking powder
4tsp cacoa powder (if using cocoa, use a little less sugar)
A pinch of salt
50g coconut oil
70ml plant-based milk (I use oat)
Preheat the over to 190c
Gently heat the coconut oil until it has melted
Mix together the flour, sugar, chia seeds, baking powder and salt.
Add in the melted coconut oil and the milk and then mix.
It should be quite a thick consistency.
Roll the mixture into 8 balls. (The Cookie dough is incredible and it takes all my will not to eat it all before cooking but they're worth it I promise!)
Place the balls on a baking tray, keeping space between them.
For soft, doughy cookies, bake for 8minutes, for slightly harder cookies bake for 10mins.
As soon as you've removed from the oven, gently press the top of the ball with a spoon to create the shape you want and then leave to cool. (They are quite fragile until they have cooled fully - if you can't wait then just be a little careful)
So simple and SO delicious! Let me know if you try them.
Much love x
