(Almost Vegan) Chocolate Chip Cookies



It's been quite a while!

I totally have forgotten about how busy one can get with a baby, especially newborn. Imagine that I had to take an hour to finish taking pictures of these cookies lol!



I came across the recipe on Nakula's instagram post, and had been wanting to try it out, since there is no need to cream the butter - just mix and bake!

Great for busy mums like me haha!

I like the texture of these cookies - slightly crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. The cookies would be soft after you've baked them, and turns crunchy upon cooling.

Oh yes, I tweaked it into lactation cookies for myself lol!



(Almost Vegan) Chocolate Chip Cookies - Recipe Adapted from Nakula / Ryleats
Ingredients: 
-  50g coconut oil
-  70g coconut or brown sugar
-  30g milk (or replace with oat/almond milk to make it vegan)
-  1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
-  125g plain flour
-  1/2 tsp baking soda
-  1/2 tsp baking powder
-  1/4 tsp salt
-  2 tsp brewer's yeast (or replace with 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder)
-  85g chocolate chips


Optional Add-ins:
-  Raisins / Dried cranberries / Diced dried fruits
-  Oats
-  Coconut flakes / dessicated coconut
*I added about 15g each of raisins and oats




Method:
1.  Preheat oven to 180C.


2.  Whisk coconut oil and sugar together. Add in the milk and vanilla extract and whisk to combine.


3.  In another bowl, mix together plain flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, brewer's yeast (or cocoa powder).


4.  Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chips and any other add-ins.


5.  Drop the dough by teaspoons onto lined baking tray. (You might need to press the dough against the sides of the mixing bowl to "compress" the dough)


6.  Bake in the preheated oven for about 8 mins. Cool the cookies on cooling rack completely, before storing in air tight container.
