These Vegan-Whole Wheat-Coconut oil-Sunflower seeds-eggless cookie which doubles as your morning breakfast falls in that 3rd category. Enjoy !!
I bake a lot of cookies for my family but I also try to make them as healthy as I can while also making sure they are yummy. This cookie is no exception. It has all the good stuff in it which you can probably think of while also satisfying your vegan/vegetarian sweet cravings
The Wheat Bran and Oat flour add much needed fiber and the coconut oil gives that moist and coconutty flavor. You don’t need to buy oats flour separately for this. Instead just process 1/2 cup of oats in your food processor to get 1/ cup of flour for this recipe.
As with any cookie, the add-ins are unlimited for this recipe. You can add chia seeds, pumpkin seeds and dry fruits like raisins or dry strawberries.
I sometimes like to bake nut-free cookies for a change. But you can add your choice of nuts instead of only seeds and also swap soy milk for Almond or regular milk.
These cookies are done in 10 mins in the oven. They might look sort of undone while in the oven. But once the edges are brown, its time to take them out and let them cool on the wire rack.
