The Best Simple Vegan Chocolate Cookie Recipe
Hi loves, a little treat for you on the bog today!
I have been vegan, plant based, VGANG, cruelty free, for 6.5 years now and I also LOVE to cook and bake in my free time. In fact I make time to do so because not only are the health benefits of preparing your own food from scratch huge but I find it one of the most creative and relaxing past times. Plus you get to share what you have made with loved ones… unless it’s cookies in which case I wouldn’t blame you for not sharing!
I came across this recipe via the BBC Good Food website. It ticked all the boxes for me! Coconut oil, chocolate, quick bake, store for up to 3 days (who am I kidding these were devoured within 2 days at our house!)
I switched out the golden caster sugar for coconut sugar and only used bicarb not baking powder. I also added 3 tbsp cocoa powder so mine were double chocolate!
125g cold coconut oil
100g golden coconut sugar
150g light muscovado sugar
125ml coconut milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
275g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
100g vegan chocolate chips or vegan chocolate, chopped into small chunks
3 tbsp cocoa powder
melt the coconut oil and then mix with sugars in a bowl and whisking until completely combined, then whisk in the coconut milk and vanilla.
Tip the flour, bicarb and a good pinch of flaky sea salt into the mix to make a thick batter, then fold through the chocolate chips. Chill the batter for at least 1hr. Can be made 2 days ahead.
Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4.
I weighed out 35-38g scoops of refrigerated cookie dough and rolled into balls before placing on a parchment lined tray.
Bake for 12 minutes, turning the tray once. Remove from tray and cool… or eat immediately with a big mug of tea.
This recipe made 22 medium sized chewy crispy yummy cookies!
*Why not try adding chopped nuts such as hazelnut, grated orange zest or chop up a white Vego bar and add if you are feeling extra fancy.
