I thought I’d share this amazing recipe for cookies which is vegan (and you won’t believe it).
(can make 6 – 12 cookies, dependant on how big you want each one)
125g vegan butter (Vitalite is my recommendation)
125g granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
250g plain white flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
40g vegan chocolate chips
Cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl until fluffy. Stir in the vanilla extract and mix thoroughly.
In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, and chocolate chips. Add this to the cream butter and mix until a soft dough is formed.
Shape into a log, wrap in clingfilm or foil, and refrigerate for at least an hour (or preferably overnight).
To bake, preheat the oven to 180C/gas mark 4. Divide and roll the cookies into equally-sized balls before spacing them well apart on a baking sheet.
Bake in batches. Each batch should take 15 – 20 minutes to cook. Slightly underdone is best as the cookies will firm up when cooled.
Leave to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes, then carefully transfer them to a wire cooling rack.
You can adapt this recipe as you like to create different types of cookies.
I hope you enjoyed this post,
