I made two different version of the cookies from Manifest Vegan.
This resembles those Spanish sweets: polvoró.
The winter is coming to The Netherlands. You can notice it from several things: first, the temperature nowadays are really low, second the days are getting shorter and shorter and finally, the food stores are full of cookies like Speculaas for Sinterklaas or winter time. Usually those cookies are not vegan, so I decided to make them in a vegan way. Here is the recipe 1 that I followed, however you can also check at recipe 2, to personalize it in your way.
Today was a baking day and I just fell as doing cookies. That was the first time I did any kind of cookies and to my surprise they were really good. I liked them because they were not so sweet, not so fatty, … my own cookies to my taste. Actually it was really easy to do and not elaborated. (By the way, for those with an Catalan background, these cookies are as the Maria Cristina galetes amb la neula baix).
- 1 cup of flour
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (I used carob chocolate with no added sugar)
- 1/4 cup of oil
- 1/8 cup of water
- 2 teaspoon of baking soda
Mix all the dry ingredients (chocolate, flour, sugar, baking power) in a bowl, later in another mix the oil and the water. Finally mix all wet and dry ingredients in a bowl.
This is already the cookie dough and now place them in small portions in a no-sticky surface either using a baking paper or a silicon mat. Then bake it for 15 min at 180ºC.
