Pecan and Maple Oat Cookies with Choc Chips

image

These cookies are delicious and are also pretty nutritious! The pecan nuts are ground up with the oats to make a really creamy tasting cookie and the maple goes so well with the nuts! And what is a cookie without some chocolate?!…So I added some chocolate chips too!


Preparation time: 30 minutes (including baking time)


Ingredients (Makes 10 cookies):

  • 2 cups Gluten Free Oats
  • 2 cups Pecan Nuts (unsalted and not roasted)
  • 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/3 cup Maple Syrup
  • 2cm cube of Raw Coco Butter (or any other SOLID vegan fat)
  • 2 tbsp Gluten Free Plain White Flour (Dove Farm is my chosen brand)
  • 1/3 cup Vegan Chocolate Chips

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius
  2. Place the oats and pecans into a blender and grind to a flour or a meal texture
  3. In a separate bowl, add the baking powder to the vinegar and mix well until it foams (this is an excellent substitute for one egg)
  4. Add the maple syrup and baking powder mixture to the nuts and oats and blend further
  5. Add the butter or your chosen solid fat to the mixture and blend so a while until the fat has been broken down and the mixture forms a dough
  6. Add 2 tbsp of the gluten free flour and incorporate in the blender
  7. Turn the mixture out onto a work surface and incorporate chocolate chips into the mixture with your hands
  8. If the mixture appears greasy it is only the nut oils coming out and so just dab with a paper towel
  9. Shape the cookies and bake at 180 degrees celsius on baking paper or a silicone sheet for 12 minutes
  10. Remove front he oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes before removing them from the baking sheet
  11. Enjoy my Little Peas!
