Chocolate Oat Cookies

Cookies are a great thing to bake with kids and with the UK currently in lockdown I decided to try to create a new recipe that I could bake with the boys but which would also fit in with what I’m eating during Veganuary. They have been taste tasted and approved by the boys and their dad and I’ve already been asked “Mummy! When can we make those new cookies again?!”

The Best Gluten Free Vegan Cookie Recipe

Over the past year or so we have tried many different gluten free and vegan cookie recipes. This recipe combines all of our favourite parts into one great recipe for everyone to enjoy. I hope you like them as much as we do.

Chocolate Oat Cookies

Amazing Ingredients

I’ve added in cacao powder for amazing chocolate taste as well as lifting mood and providing minerals such as iron and calcium. Adding in oats and ground almonds provides fibre and protein. Cashew butter gives protein, taste and helps the cookies stick together well and not be too crumbly.

Let’s get baking!

    Baking delicious biscuits is a great thing to do with kids. Love the sound of these. Oats and almonds are just so good. I use coconut oil too when I’m baking vegan biscuits. It seems to work really well as a butter substitute. Pinned
