I follow so many vegan food creators, am I vegan…….no but I’m so interested in vegan recipes because some of the replacements people be using blow my mind. Like people are making fried chicken burgers, but with mushrooms and looking at them, I can’t even tell a difference HUHHH ??? It truly blows my mind every time I swear vegans are geniuses.
Anyway, I think I went off topic. I recently learnt that you could replace the eggs in cookies with fruit, so then the only other thing in my cookie recipe that isn’t vegan is the butter. So I just used a plant based butter and yeah here we are, vegan strawberry and chocolate cookies!
Vegan Strawberry and Chocolate cookies
100g any dairy-free butter
50g brown sugar
150g granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
240g plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
100g any vegan chocolate (i used dark chocolate)
an additional 50g of strawberries (chopped into small pieces)
- start by mashing the first 50g of strawberries, i just do this using a fork. keep mashing them until you get a smooth paste then leave this aside
- melt the butter then pour this into a large bowl, along with both sugars and the vanilla. mix these together, then whisk in the mashed strawberries
- in a separate bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda
- add this dry mixture into the wet mixture and mix until a dough forms
- chop your chocolate into whatever size pieces you want and add this into the dough
- now just add in the chopped strawberries. be gentle mixing these in, you don't want the strawberries to release too much juice
- the wetness of your dough depends on how juicy the strawberries were, if at this point the dough is too soft to make cookie dough balls, leave this in the fridge for 1 hour, then create the balls, then you can bake these straight away. however, if the dough is firm enough, create the cookie dough balls straight away, then leave these in the fridge for 30 minutes before baking
- i used an ice cream scoop to make the cookie dough balls, each one was around 90g
- place these on a baking paper lined tray, making sure to leave a gap between them so they have room to spread
- bake them in a 180c/350f pre-heated oven for around 20-25 minutes
- leave these on the tray for 10 minutes before trying to pick them up so they can have a chance to set and then you're done!
