Recently I was in Delhi for a wedding and it was during this trip that I baked these vegan cookies . My nephew is a vegan and his wife always looks out for interesting vegan recipes , though these cookies were made for their 11/2 year old baby who loves to munch on cookies . Practically everything cooked , baked in the house is vegan , as we don’t want my nephew to miss on anything .
The Delhi trip was one hectic one with school get together and a family wedding . Any Delhi trip I take must include some cooking demos , this time did some baking too . These cookies were made around midnight , with the wedding rituals and functions , this was the only time we got !
I have been asked to post more vegan recipes , well you all know that I too was avoiding dairy since long , but at present I am not very strict , though I will definitely try and post more vegan recipes for my dear nephew . Right now here’s the recipe for these Chocolate Cookies .But before I post this one here are some more chocolate based cookies.
Vegan Chocolate Cookies
1 cup Whole wheat flour
2-3 tbsp cocoa powder
1/3 cup oil
1/3 cup sugar, powdered
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla essence
1-2 tsp almond milk
Sift the flour , cocoa powder ,baking powder and baking soda.
Cream sugar and oil .
Add vanilla essence and mix.
To this mixture add flour and mix well, it shall have a bread crumb like texture.
Add a teaspoon of milk and make a dough.
If the dough is crumby, add few drops of milk .
Pinch out small balls and place on a tray tray lined with baking paper.
Flatten the balls , sprinkle some colourful sprinklers and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degree C for 15 minutes or till the cookies turn golden brown around the edges.
