Makes 10-12 bite sized cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp tapioca/corn flour;
  • 2 tbsp oat/buckwheat flour;
  • 3 tbsp vegan protein powder (or gluten free flour);
  • 3 tbsp almond meal;
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour (or almond meal);
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar (plus 2 tbsp coconut sugar if using gluten free flour);
  • 1 tsp baking powder;
  • 1.5 tbsp sprinkles;
  • 2 tbsp chocolate chips;
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter; and
  • 3-4 tbsp almond milk (or milk of your choice).

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius and grease a baking tray;
  2. In a bowl, place all the dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Add peanut butter and mix until it resembles bread crumbs;
  3. Add almond milk one tbsp at a time and mix together until it becomes a cookie dough. I needed 3 tbsp of almond milk but you may need less or more;
  4. Using a tbsp as a guide, roll the cookie dought into balls and flatten on the baking tray. You can top with some extra sprinkles if you like (make sure you press the sprinkles into the top of the cookies so that they don’t fall off the cookies);
  5. Place in the oven and bake for 20-30 minutes. If you prefer chewier cookies, bake for 20 minutes. If you prefer crunchier cookies, bake for 25-30 minutes. I prefer crunchier cookies, so I baked mine for 30 minutes; and
  6. Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚ Store in an air-tight container in cool dark place for up to two weeks.

Happy baking,

Suba Xx
