Fat Cookies.

I’m happy to report that the ward Husband’s staying on provides vegan meals! But not vegan desserts. Man cannot live on chickpea curry alone…my duty is clear.

  • 300g wholewheat flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 130g coconut oil (vegan spread would likely also work)
  • 90g sugar (I use coconut. Where would we be without the coconut?)
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbs flax meal mixed with 3 tbs water and left to set for 10 minutes or so)
  • 75ml plant milk (I prefer oat, but I’m using soya lately because it’s affordable)
  • 150g mixed dried fruit
  • 50g dried cranberries
  • 50g flaked almonds
  • zest of 1 orange and 1 lemon
  • Cinnamon to taste

Mix the baking powder into the flour so it’s evenly distributed, and then mash the flour mix into the coconut oil. It should end up kinda like sand or breadcrumbs. Then add the sugar, flax egg and plant milk and mix into a thick batter. Stir through the dried fruit, almonds, zest and cinnamon, then roll into balls and squish into fat cookies. I ended up with twelve. Bake at Gas 6/200C/400F for about 20 minutes, or until they look done. Enjoy 🙂
