Vegan Chocolate Chips Cookies Recipe [ Plus 3 More Recipes You Gonna Love ]
School will soon be over, summer is at the door and kids will be home and ready to party with the friends. It’s family time and I thought a couple of sweet recipes would be a good idea today, to make the little ones happy and mom’s life a little easier.
So I went through my notes and found some of my favorite desserts, the ones that will make my kids smile no matter how they feel, and what a better way to share a bit of this happiness by sharing with you my vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie recipes and some other cakes recipes that are easy to do and everyone will love.
The Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie
Who doesn’t love a good Cookie? And when they are homemade they taste even better and they are much healthier and the ones we buy in the store. Why? because it’s you making it and you know exactly what ingredients you have put inside those cookies.
No hidden preservatives, no additives, no artificial colors, pure goodness in a cookie! Oh, yeah, and in case I forgot to mention: NO SUGAR!
- 500 gr of whole wheat flour or whatever you prefer
- 100 ml of sunflower oil
- 150 ml of agave syrup
- 1 orange (juice and grated)
- 1 chocolate bar cut in small pieces looking like chips
- 3 teaspoons of baking soda
- 120 ml of almond milk (or rice milk if you prefer)
To begin, mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Add the oil and then add little by little the almond milk, the agave syrup and the orange juice until the mixture because thick and you can shape it. If it is too dry add a little more milk or if it is too liquid just a bit more flour.
While you are shaping the cookies, you need to preheat the oven to 180ºC with heat up and down and fan (if your oven does not have a fan option put the heat program up and down).
When the oven is hot, put the cookies on a tray inside the oven and bake them until the edges start to get a lovely golden hue (depends on the size).
I recommend making them about 5 cm to have to bake between 15 – 20 minutes.
Take them out and let them cool off before serving them to the kids….
SUPER EASY RECIPE AS I SAID
Vegan Chocolate Muffins
Perfect as a snack or breakfast for the little ones in the house, the Cup Cakes are an easy solution everyone will love.
If instead of muffins you want to prepare a cake you just have to put the dough in a cake mold and bake it for approximately 45 to 60 minutes Depending on the oven and the mold you are going to use.
- 400 gr of whole wheat flour
- 120 gr of cocoa
- 50 cl of rice or almond milk
- 180 ml of agave syrup
- 4 teaspoons of baking soda
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 100 ml of sunflower oil
Preheat the oven to 180ºC with heat up and down and fan (if your oven does not have a fan option put the heat program up and down).
Start by mixing in a bowl all the dry ingredients until they are very well integrated.
Take a separate bowl and mix the liquid ingredients.
Once you are ready take both the dry and liquid ingredients and mix them together well until you have a homogeneous mixture.
Put the dough in the muffin molds (or cake mold if you opted for a cake).
The oven by now should be ready so you can put the muffins inside and bake them for approximately 15-20 minutes.
Remove them from the oven and let the muffins cool well before taking them out of the mold to prevent them from breaking.
ONCE AGAIN: SUPER EASY RECIPE !
Flour Less Brownie
Yes, you heard it , you can actually prepare a Brownie with No flour whatsoever! Let’s see how:
- 3 very ripe bananas
- 1/2 cup peanut butter or almond butter
- 50 gr of almonds (chopped)
- 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
- 1 – 2 tablespoons of protein powder
Preheat the oven 180ºC and grease a tray or mold.
In a small bowl or microwave cooking plate, melt the butter.
Combine the banana, cocoa powder, protein powder and butter in a blender , or if you prefer you can even do it with your hand (I do prefer the blender though) until smooth. (If you are looking for a good blender here are the best choices of 2019)
Pour the mixture into the greased pan and bake for about 20 minutes or until cooked.
Remove from oven and let cool completely before cutting.
Vegan Banana and Chocolate Ice cream
To end this wonderful list of easy to make vegan Recipes, I couldn’t leave aside an Ice Cream, especially since, nothing goes together better than Ice cream and brownies, so you can really combine the two recipes together and get a winning dessert!
- 3 large ripe bananas
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
- 200 g of cashew nuts
- 50 ml of agave syrup
- 50 ml of coconut milk
- 1 vanilla pod
- 50 g of organic cocoa powder
Begin by peeling the bananas and mash it up with the lemon juice.
Put the activated cashew nuts in a blender with the agave syrup and the coconut milk. Mix it well till you get a smooth and creamy texture. Add the bananas.
Open the vanilla pod in half lengthwise, scrape the pulp and incorporate the seeds in the blender.
Put the mixture in a bowl and let it stand in the freezer.
Remove it with a fork every half hour so that the ice crystals remain small.
When it begins to thicken, remove it from the freezer and divide it into two parts; in one of them add cocoa and mix well.
Once you are done you can put the two parts together again by mixing them with a fork; what we are trying to get here is a marbled effect .
Return the ice cream to the freezer and serve when you are ready.One of my favorite books ever on vegan desserts and one that I have found inspiration in so many of the sweet delicacies I prepare for my kids is “Chloe’s Vegan Desserts” . If you are looking for a book full of ideas and recipes easy to prepare, this is definitely one to get.
