Vegan Chocolate Chip Treasure Cookies

So its official – this is a dessert blog!!

I promise my next post will not be a dessert, but I just brought a Bellini Intelligent Kitchen Machine (a knock off of the Thermomix) & I am on a baking/cooking frenzy.

These cookies are firm & crumbly with a light crisp texture & the added bonus of  hidden treasures!!

Not only do these cookies have a slight vanilla coconut flavour but they are also studded with two different kinds of chocolate chips & chunks of roasted cashew nuts. YUM!!

They are suitable for vegans and can be made sugar free if you substitute the coconut sugar for 1/4 c of honey, maple syrup, agave or your preferred sweetener. If your not that fussed on coconut (we love, love, love it in this household) you can omit the desiccated coconut & swap the coconut oil for butter, but I don’t think they will be as yummy!!

Heat your oven to 175 degrees & roll your dough into balls & lightly depress with the back of a fork.

These cookies do spread a little so be sure to keep them apart on the tray. Cook for 10-15 minutes. This recipe makes approximately 20 cookies.

Go Forth & Bake…..

    Cheers for a vegan recipe so that I can not only go forth and bake but I can go forth and eat as well! 🙂

      You are most welcome – they are delicious try not to eat them all at once 🙂

        I am sure it’s someone else eating them all at once… surely it wasn’t me! ;). Seriously though, Omni hubby loves vegan cookies as well (although we call them biscuits here in Tasmania 😉 )

        It’s always someone else – until your pants stop fitting 😉
