Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
30. June 2017
From time to time we´ve got to have something sweet right? How about soft and delicious chocolate chip cookies? Especially on sundays I always feel a strong desire to bake something or to have a cookie or 2 in the afternoon.
This recipe consist of only good ingredients, which can be individually and easy modified.
Admittedly, it is not low in histamine because of the walnuts and chocolate chips. However, it also works with almonds and carob chocolate, both slightly better tolerated. Just experiment a bit to find what works best for you. Anyone who is suffering from a gluten intolerance can replace the normal oats with gluten-free ones.
For all non-allergic persons: simply bake and enjoy :-)!
Dairy - free
For 16 pieces
1 1/2 cups walnuts (140g)
Can be replaced with almonds
3/4 cup oat flour (80g)
If needed make on your own from gluten free oats
3/4 cup rolled oats (80g)
If needed gluten free
1/8 cup coconut oil (30g) melted
2/3 cup coconut sugar (80g)
Or another sweetener of you choice like Erythrit
1/4 cup rice milk (60ml)
Or another plant milk that you can tolerate like almond milk or oat milk
3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips (80g)
A low in histamine alternative would be carob chocolate
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground vanilla
Or vanilla extract
1/2 tsp replacement for baking powder
Or normal baking powder
Pre-heat the oven to 175 degree celsius (350 degree fahrenheit) and prepare a baking sheet with baking paper
Place 1 cup of the walnuts in a blender and blend it into a buttery consistency. It will take some patience
Mix the oatmeal, baking powder and salt in a bowl and set aside
Put walnut, butter, melted coconut oil, rice milk, coconut blossom sugar and vanilla in a separate bowl and whisk it up with an eggbeater. Then add the dry ingredients and stir until you get a smooth dough
Chop the remaining 20g walnuts and stir together with the chocolate chips and the rolled oats under the dough. If you use a chocolate bar just roughly chop it
Use your hands to form 16 balls. Place them on the baking sheet and press them slightly.
Bake in the oven on the middle rack for about 15-20 minutes, until they´re browned on the outside
Allow cookies to cool down on the tray and then convert them to a kitchen rack.
They are still very soft at the beginning, but become firmer after cooling
