It’s been a week of birthdays at work, with one more still to come next week; mine! So I’ve been baking a variety of sweet vegan treats.
I went mainstream (read “sugary”) with these chocolate chunk cookies. I find they go down the best with non-vegans and proves that it is possible to have your fave naughty treats whilst on a plant based diet.
I’ve been trying to keep the dreaded added sugar out of my diet recently, but even I succumbed to these – I ate 2, straight out of the oven – oops!
This recipe makes about 15 large cookies :
What you’ll need :
🍪 150g unrefined light brown sugar
🍪 250g unrefined plain flour
🍪 100g dark chocolate, chopped in to chunks
🍪 125g dairy-free margarine
🍪 100g maple syrup
🍪 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
And how you do it :
Preheat your oven to 180C
Cream together the sugar + margarine
Here are the brands I used because they are suitable for vegans :
