I’ve got a scrumptiously satisfying cookie recipe for you that makes for the perfect offering when you have friends and family over during the festive period. They are firm on the outside but soft in the middle with a delicious chunk of chocolate in every bite.
1 cup of plain flour
pinch of salt
1/2 cup of sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup of vegan dark chocolate chips (most dark chocolate is vegan but be sure to check the ingredients. I used Waitrose dark chocolate chunks)
1/4 cup of vegetable oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup of almond or soya milk
Preheat oven to 170 degree (fan assisted). Mix all of the ingredients together until well incorporated and a cookie dough is formed. At this point you can taste test because there is no egg! Form 10-12 small balls and place spaced apart on a lined baking tray. Cook for around 12 minutes or until firm to touch. These cookies won’t really change a lot in colour so don’t wait for this to happen as you will risk having dry cookies. Let the cookies cool for at least 15 minutes or longer if you are like me and like the chocolate to have solidified completely. Enjoy!
NB: If you would like to make a more nutritious version why not make a few swaps? Coconut sugar instead of granulated sugar, coconut oil instead of vegetable oil and coconut flour instead of plain flour. Please note that I have not yet tried this version so can’t guarantee quality, but do leave a comment if you try either recipes!
