Double Chocolate Vegan Cookies without sugar?

You can choose to make them with 100% raw ingredients and omit the sugar. We like to add that one tablespoon of sugar in our house as it helps bring out the flavours of the other ingredients and makes them taste more chocolatey and less healthy (because it is a cookie after all!). And really, what is 15ml of sugar divided amongst 30 cookies? Instead of white caster sugar, you can also use brown muscavado sugar, as it is healthier. Muscovado sugar is unrefined cane sugar that contains natural molasses. It has a rich brown color, moist texture, and toffee-like taste.

Vegan Double Chocolate Cookies Recipe

Use your favourite ingredients for the vegan double chocolate cookies

The nuts: I prefer to use a mild nut for these cookies -like almonds or cashew nuts. But you can make them with whatever not you like -or have in the cupboard. Just remember that if you use walnuts, peanuts or another such strong flavoured nuts, the cookies will taste more “nutty”. This might makes it harder to serve for kids especially.

The dates: I always use Kimia dates for my recipes as they are sweet, yet have no added sugar and aren’t sticky like the long shelf life ones they sell in a sealed bag in the supermarket. You can buy the kimia dates at the vegetable market or in most supermarkets. They cost a little bit more but are worth the cost as they are healthy and nutritious.

The vegan egg: To make the chia egg, combine 1 tbsp chia seeds with 3 tbsp water. Grind it well until it becomes a sticky consistence. I have shown this in the steps below too as well as in the video below. I always buy my seeds fromTrue Elementson amazon.in. Their products are excellent without any unwanted surprises.
