27 Nov Recipe: Vegan Choc Chip Cookies
There’s nothing better than freshly baked choc-chip cookies. With the festive season upon us, best we dust off our baking trays as we’ll be making cookies for guests and maybe even as gifts too. Here’s a recipe for vegan choc-chip cookies.
for 10 servings
- 1/2 cup sugar (100g)
- 3/4 cup dark brown sugar (165g) packed
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup refined coconut oil (120g), melted
- 1/4 cup non-dairy milk (60g)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups flour (185g)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 230g Nova choc chips
- In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, brown sugar, salt, and coconut oil until combined.
- whisk in non-dairy milk and vanilla, until all sugar has dissolved and the batter is smooth.
- Sift in the flour, and baking soda, then fold the mixture with a spatula, being careful not to overmix.
- Fold in the chocolate chips evenly.
- Chill the dough for at least 30 mins.
- Preheat oven to 180’c.
- Scoop the dough with an ice cream scoop onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Be sure to leave at least 5cm of space between cookies and the edges of the pan so cookies can spread evenly.
- Bake for 12-15 mins, or until cookies just begin to brown
Nova Chocolate has partnered with Goodbye Malaria with the addition of two exciting flavours, which include:
- Salted Caramel Cashew Chilli Chocolate
- Dark Chilli Chocolate
That means, if you buy one of these slabs, a percentage of proceeds will raise funds and awareness for the fight against malaria in southern Africa. Goodbye Malaria is a social benefit organisation that aims to eliminate malaria in our lifestyle, helping communities in South Africa, Mozambique, and Eswatini combat the scourge of malaria-carrying mosquitoes. Learn more about Goodbye Malaria on their website.
In addition to helping humanity, all Nova branded products are dairy-free and vegan. Now you don’t have to let your enjoyment of the world’s most decadent chocolate impact the lives of any animals.
A good slab of chocolate doesn’t have to be an overly indulgent affair laden with processed sugar. Nova uses maltitol, which is a sugar alcohol. Much healthier than the processed alternative, sugar alcohols are found naturally in fruits and vegetables and are actually considered carbohydrates.
