I like to bake in the weekend. Pie, (cup)cakes, pancakes, waffles, and cookies. J. prefers to help when it’s cookies. For some it may sound a bit civil, a young married couple baking cookies together. But we think it’s fun and cozy.
Last sunday we were creative. Or… ‘accidentally creative’, after making a mistake, we experimented and it was a hit!
Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies (based on Chocolate Chip Cookies from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar)
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup melted butter (Alpro or for the US: Earth Balance)
1/2 cup hazelnutmilk
2 tbsp ground flaxseeds
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups oatmeal
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup pure chocolate chips
Add the sugar and melted butter in a bowl and mix till it’s emulsified.
Mix the hazelnutmilk, flaxseeds and vanilla extract in.
Add the baking soda and oatmeal.
Sift about half the flour in and add in bits, it’s possible that you need less then the full cup (you will notice if your dough becomes to dry).
Mix in the chocolate chips.
Preheat your oven on 185°C.
I like to make little balls from the dough and flatten them between my two handpalms.
Drop the doughy cookies onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
Put the cookies in the oven for about 12 minutes. Let them cool on a cooling rack.
