I’ve seen many recipes for cookies made with oat flour, especially vegan-gluten free ones. Oat flour doesn’t have to be purchased, it can easily be made by blending wholegrain oats briefly in a blender. These cookies are supremely easy to make: blend dry ingredients for around 30 seconds, add wet, scoop onto cookie sheets and bake for a few minutes, depending on size. If you're good at shaping cookies, you could take even less than five minutes! (I'm not, I come up with the most bizarre shapes.) If you love flapjacks and oatmeal raisin cookies, you’ll adore these! You can make these oatmeal-raisin cookies by substituting the chocolate with raisins. My baby sister took these to school and ate them all and left everything else my mum packed; I was secretly very flattered because she is the pickiest person I know :) These chocolate-chip cookies are the saintliest you will ever eat, in addition to the most scrumptious: they are low in sugar and 100% wholegrain.
|If you bake only one healthy cookie in your life, let it be this one.|
|And eat with cold creamy soymilk (or almond milk, or cashew milk, or rice milk, or go crazy and have oat milk). Dunking recommended.|
Chocolate-Almond Chip Cookies
- 150g rolled oats
- 50g soft dark brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- pinch salt, if you like
- 26g macadamia oil or melted coconut oil (for taste, or use canola if you don’t have)
- 50g soymilk or other non-dairy milk (no more!)
- 10g vanilla essence (or use 5g vanilla bean paste)
- 60g chopped Whittaker’s 62% with almond chocolate, or chocolate of your choice
- Process first four ingredients in blender to form flour. It doesn’t have to be very fine.
- Add next four ingredients and mix to form stiff dough. You want dough, not batter! Feel free to taste the dough: it's delicious, and you don’t have to worry about salmonella from raw eggs!
- Scoop fifteen or so little mounds of dough onto baking trays lined with baking paper, and flatten slightly using a greased spoon. Bake for seven minutes. Take cookies out when still soft, as they will harden upon cooling.
|I know I said to make 15, but the dough is very tasty, okay?|
|Have a great week!|
