Intro: Vegan Coconut Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies!
Recipe: For about 12 larger cookies
125 ml solid coconut oil ( 1/2 cup solid )
100 gr coconut sugar ( 3/4 cup )
150 gr medium-sized oats ( 1 cup + 1/2 cup )
120 gr oat flour/ I used home-made ( 1 cup + 1/4 cup )
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of sea salt
300 ml unsweetened coconut-rice beverage ( 1 cup + bit less than 1/4 cup )
80 gr smaller vegan dark chocolate chips ( 1/2 cup )
30 gr unsweetened coconut flakes (1/3 cup )
1. Place your solid coconut oil in a fitted cooking pot & let it completely melt on lower heat. Stir often. Turn heat off & set aside. In a medium bowl, pour coconut oil & add coconut sugar. Mix well with a spoon. Now, add oats, oat flour, pinch of sea salt & baking soda. Mix well through. Now, add coconut-rice milk, chocolate chips & coconut flakes. Mix well. Taste! You must taste the coconut & chocolate chips. The dough tastes a bit sweet but not too sweet either, just right! ;) Place cling film over the top & place to rest in the fridge for 30 minutes. This way, the dough will stiff up in the fridge.
2. After the resting time, take your bowl out of the fridge & remove cling film. Preheat your oven to 180°C ( 350 F ) for 10 minutes. I always use a fan-oven. With your hands , take bigger pieces of your dough, a bit less than the inner palm of your hand & roll balls. Flatten them with your hands & place on a Silpat & do the same with remaining dough. Space them apart & my Silpat could hold 9 bigger cookies. Place in the lower end of your oven & bake for about 18 minutes. The cookies must be cooked through & brownen on the tops. Take them out of the oven & leave them for about 5 minutes on the Silpat. This will give a lovely shine on the bottom of the cookies. Than, move them to wire racks to get crisp & to cool down completely! ;) Enjoy, just like that, as a nice breakfast, snack or as a lovely dessert with a good café latte or an enjoyable tea! :) When cold, pack them nicely to give as a lovely food gift! ;)
