Ingredients

COOKIES

  • 130 g oats (any oats are fine)
  • 75 g wholemeal flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 30 g brown sugar
  • 45 g white caster sugar (equals about ¼ cup)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 55 g vegan butter
  • 125 g natural peanut butter (equals about half a cup)
  • 1 banana mashed up

TOPPINGS

  • 25 g chocolate chips
  • 15 g cranberries
  • tbsp hazelnuts chopped

Instructions

  • Combine all your dry ingredients: oats, flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, brown and white sugar.
  • Mix well using a fork or a whisk. Set aside.
  • Make a chia egg by combining 4 tbsp of boiling hot water and 1 tbsp of chia seeds. Stir well until no lumps remain. Put aside to set for 5 minutes.
  • Mix all your wet ingredients: vegan butter, peanut butter, mashed up banana and chia egg.
  • Pour your wet mixture oven your dry mixture and mix well using a fork or a silicone spatula.
  • Decide on your toppings/flavour addition: I recommend dark chocolate chips for one half and cranberries and chopped hazelnuts for the other half of your batter. 
  • If you’re making two different flavours, split your mixture in half. Fold in dark chocolate chips for one half of your mixture and fold in cranberries + chopped hazlenuts for the second half of your mixture. 
  • If you’re just making one flavour, no need to split the mixture - simply just double the amount of toppings you see written in the Ingredients part above. 
  • Line a baking sheet with baking paper and measure out your cookies: I I used a ⅛ measuring cup for each cookie. This mixture should make approx. 20 cookies.
  • Press down the cookies using a fork to create 4 parallel lines across the middle as seen in the step-by-step instruction photos above. 
  • Bake at 375°F / 190°C (fan oven) for 10-12 minutes. If not using a fan oven, bake at 392°F / 200°C.

Notes

  • Make sure your mixture is dense, not too wet and elastic.
  • If your mixture is too dry, add 1 tsp of plant milk at a time and mix again. However, don’t go overboard when adding your milk.
