Gooey Vegan Choc-Walnut Cookies by @plantiful.peninsula
The pic says it all for these really. We would say more but we know you are already on the way to the kitchen to make these.
- 125g Cocobella coconut yoghurt
- 100ml EVOO
- 150g brown sugar
- 100g raw sugar
- 300g flour
- 1tsp tapioca flour
- 2tsp baking powder
- 1tsp kosher or crystal salt
- 1.5 cups dairy free dark choc chips
- 1.5 cups chopped walnuts
- Preheat oven to 200*C
- Beat the yoghurt, oil and sugars until smooth and thick. Add in all the other ingredients except the chocolate and walnuts and mix firmly until a smooth dough forms, mix through your
- chocolate and walnuts and form into balls (I weighed mine; 75g)
- Place onto a baking tray, do not flatten the balls, and bake for 10min
This dough can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days, we like to cook just a few at a time so we can always have warm, fresh baked cookies.
Secret Ingredient Fudgy Brownies by @Li.Pippi
“I like to keep my brownies in the fridge overnight before indulging. They will firm up a little and taste even better… if you can wait that long that is! These puppies also freeze very well if you have leftovers…which I doubt!!!”
- 100g Monkfruit sweetener
- 50g cacao powder
- 33g coconut flour
- 25g flaxseed meal
- 10g baking powder
- 3g baking soda
- 509g Baby Peas 2x tins
- 110g Sugar free Maple Syrup
- 26g Coconut oil
- 80g Cocobella Coconut Yoghurt
- 8g vanilla extract
- 55g Cocobella Coconut Yoghurt
- 13g powdered peanut butter
- 20g Cacao powder
- 80g Sugar free Maple Syrup
- Mix dry ingredients in a bowl
- Drain two tins of peas and blend with all the wet ingredients
- Add wet mix into your dry mix and stir to combine. Be careful to not over mix. If the batter is too thick, add more Cocobella Coconut Yoghurt. If it’s too thin, add coconut flour.
- Grease a 8×8 tray, pour in mix and bake @200 degrees for 40 minutes. You can basically eat this raw so when unsure, underbake instead of overbake!
- When cake is cool, mix the ingredients for the ganache and pour over your cake.
- Decorate and enjoy!!!

My daughter and I whipped these together for breakfast not long ago and have done so since. We then sat outside to eat them, nowhere to go, nowhere to be….just us, our food and conversation 💕
I walked past an older lady yesterday, walking her dog. My daughters were running to see the ducks and stopped to see her dog.
