I have been totally obsessed with the these cookies lately, they are literally the best chocolate cookies I have ever made! They are everything you want from a cookie, they are chewy, gooey , a bit crunchy and obviously super chocolately.
Although they are super decadent they are made with only wholesome ingredients which will satisfy any sweet cravings but will not leave you feeling sluggish or tired. As always they are also super easy to make so you can whip them up in under 20 minutes and nobody will ever believe that they are completely vegan, refined sugar and gluten free!
1 cup of oats
¼ cup of ground almond
¼ cup arrowroot flour
½ cup of cashew butter (almond butter will work as well)
3 tablespoon of melted coconut oil
½ cup of maple syrup or liquid sweetener of your choice
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
100 gr of good quality dark chocolate chopped in small pieces ( I have used 80% cocoa Madecasse chocolate)
Start by preheating the oven at 180 degrees Celsius.
Place the oats into a food processor and blitz until you have a flour consistency.
Remove the oat flour from the food processor and place it into a bowl with the almond flour and the arrowroot flour.
In a separate bowl mix together the almond butter, coconut oil, maple syrup and the vanilla extract. Whisk everything together Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir everything vigorously so you have no clumps. Add the chopped chocolate and mix again. You should have a sticky batter, not too runny and not too dry at the same time.
Cover a baking tray with parchment paper. With a tablespoon place the mixture onto the baking tray. About 1 tablespoon for 1 cookie. Place the baking tray in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes depending on how gooey you like the cookies to be. I baked them for about 12 minutes and they were slightly crunchy and soft on the inside.
Let them cool completely in the tray for about 30 minutes and then enjoy!
