What is there to say about cookies really? They’re little, they’re chewy and tasty and these little ones are vegan!
I haven’t used sugar in this recipe and I think the maple syrup gives them a much nicer depth of flavour anyway. (Sorry, that sounded so posh) Feel free to mix up the fruit and nut, I think anything would go with these!
Makes: 14 Cookies
- 7 Tablespoons maple syrup
- 2½ Tablespoons vegan butter
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 2/3 cup whole-wheat flour
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- Dash of cinnamon
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup toasted and chopped macadamia
Pre-heat your oven to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4 and lightly grease a baking/cookie sheet. On a low heat, melt together the syrup and the butter in a small saucepan until just melted. Allow to cool a little.
PLace into a mixing bowl the flour, oats, salt, cinnamon, baking powder, macadamia and cranberries. Now pour in the butter and syrup mixture. Stir until combined.
Now create 14 dough balls and place on to the baking sheet and press gently with a spoon or your fingers. Bake in the oven for about 10 mins or until they are firm and golden brown around edges. Allow to cool before eating – if you can!
