Whether you are vegan or not, these double chocolate vegan cookies are amazingly tasty -and healthy too as they contain no butter, egg, oil or flour! You can choose to make them with 100% raw ingredients and omit the sugar, but we like to add that one tablespoon of sugar in our house. 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?

Choose your favourite ingredients for these vegan double chocolate cookies

I prefer to use a mild nut for these cookies like almonds or cashews but you can make them with your favourite nut, without any problems. Just remember that if you use walnuts, peanuts or another such nut, the flavour will change and the cookies will taste more “nutty” which makes it harder to serve for kids especially.

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.

To make the chia egg, combine 1 tbsp chia seeds with 3 tbsp water. See more in step 1. I always buy my seeds from True Elements on amazon.in. Their products are excellent without any unwanted surprises.
