Even if we are vegans and probably more aware than others of what we put in our mouths, we too have a sweet tooth that needs to be satisfied once in a while, right? And what is more satisfying when the craving starts than cookies? At least for me they are much more tempting than candy, and I definitely prefer spending time making them at home than going to the store and buy ready made ones. Why? Because then you know for sure what’s in them! Only the simple ingredients you use at home, and none of those additives and preservatives you find in the ones you buy at the grocery store.
Soooo, here comes a recipe for truly easy vegan chocolate chip cookies! 😀 (Make sure you’re alone at home when doing them, so you don’t have to share… 😉
- 3/4 cup raw cane sugar/coconut sugar (half of each)
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 2 tbsps canola oil
- 1/4 cup oat milk (or other plant milk)
- 1 tsp cornstarch
- 1 tsp vanilla sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 3/4 cups wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder + 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 3.5 ounces dark chocolate chips
How to prepare:
Turn your oven on at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Mix the oils, the oat milk, the sugar and the cornstarch in a bowl and whip it until it’s a semi thick cake mixture. Mix half of the flour with vanilla sugar and vanilla extract, cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda. Mix it in with the cake mixture and beat it until there are no lumps left. Then add the rest of the flour and the chocolate chips. The mixture will be quite dense by now. Use your hands and form small balls that you put on a baking sheet. Press slightly on the balls if you want the cakes to be more flat and thin. If you prefer them thicker, just leave the balls as they are. Bake for approximately 10 minutes.
Now, all that is left is to eat them… 🙂 And then you can make some more!
