Okay okay, these cookies are one of my proudest recipes to date. They are soft yet crunchy, thin, chewy, and as quoted by my brother “taste like Subway cookies”. They’re made with a mixture of spelt and oat flour and like any delitable cookie, a nice heaping of sugar. Filled with pockets of chocolate, these cookies are quite addictive, I mean, ask my family, I’ve made these cookies four times in the past week and they were all gone by the end of the day. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ A note:
Make sure to SPREAD THE COOKIES before baking. I made the mistake the first time of baking and they became one big, thin cookie.
Vegan and Healthy(ish) Choc- Chip Subway Cookies (v)
Makes 12-14 cookies
print recipe here
50 g oat flour
60 g spelt flour
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp good quality salt
⅓ cup gently packed brown sugar
⅓ cup caster sugar
1 block dark chocolate, chopped
1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax meal + 2.5 tbsp water)
¼ cup vegan butter, melted or coconut oil (texture will differ)
¼ c tahini
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat the oven to 180C or 356F and line your baking tray
In a bowl, add the sugars and tahini. Combine, then slowly add in the melted vegan butter, vanilla and flax egg. Combine well.
In another bowl, mix the remaining dry ingredients (spelt, oat flour, baking powder and soda, salt) together. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry and mix well until a thick cookie dough forms.Fold through the dark chocolate
Scoop even spoonfuls of batter (ice cream scoop works well) and place onto your lined baking tray (keep a fair amount of distance between each). DO NOT PRESS, they will spread quite a bit!. Place into oven for 12-15 minutes.
The cookies should still be a little soft when you take them out, so let them cool on the baking tray for 10 minutes before transferring onto a cooling rack for a further 2-3 minutes. Enjoy warm or cold!
