Hello, everyone! Excuse me, but my brain is still in a bit of a post-holiday fog, so I figured I will start off with a simple recipe to sweeten your (and my) week a little. If you find it hard to go cold turkey (what a funny expression that!) when it comes to sweet treats this January, I am rushing to your rescue 😛 . You can ALWAYS count on me when it comes to baked goods. I always find an excuse to tinker when some form of sugar is involved.
These 5 ingredient vegan oat cookies are as good for you as cookies can be. They are a great in a cookie emergency as they come together really quickly – there is no need to refrigerate the dough. I like to think of them as portable porridge 😉 – perfect to stick in your pocket or grab for an upcoming flight. They are also stupidly easy and quick to make too. If you have any kids around who are keen on baking, you can totally entrust them with making these, provided you measure out the ingredients for them.
I made countless versions of these over the past few weeks, but my favourite one is this hazelnut and chocolate combo. It’s a nostalgic flavour pairing for me that always gets me excited.. Delicious. They are beautifully crispy, a touch chewy inside and delectably moreish – sorry, not sorry… I hope they will get you through what’s left of January and then we can get back to naughtier desserts come February.
On a separate note, if you live anywhere near the Cotswolds (UK), Duncan and myself will be talking about this very blog at the upcoming Vegan Fest in Stroud, on Saturday at 10:30. Swing by if you live locally!
