These plant-based Christmas Biscuits have the perfect hint of Christmas flavours and are perfect for anyone who is dairy-free or egg-free as well as for vegans.
I am not a chef and I am not a vegan… I am, however, trying to increase the amount of plant based foods I eat and I like experimenting in the kitchen when I get the time. Plant-based bakes has been a tricky one for me, and to be honest most of what I have tried to make has been a flop. I wanted to make some biscuits/cookies and it took me about three times to get these right. But now they are pretty perfect!. As a result I thought I’d better share them with you. You’re Welcome!
Preparation: 10 minutes
Fridge time: 30 minutes +
Bake time: 10 minutes
- 1.5 cups of wholemeal flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup of coconut oil
- 1/4 cup non-diary milk
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar or any other dark brown sugar
- pinch of salt
- 1-2 tsp mixed chirsmas spice or: 1/2 teaspoon ginger 1/2teaspoon ground cardamom, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon cloves(depending on taste a preference
1. Firstly mix the flour, baking soda, salt and spices together in a bowl.
2. In a separate bowl mix together coconut oil and the two sugars with an electric whisk or normal whisk until all combined.
3. Add the milk to the coconut oil and sugar mixture. Whisk until smooth.
4. Add t 1/3 of the flour mixture at a time to the wet mixture until everything has blended together. It should be a fairly dry dough to allow you to shape the biscuits.
5. Let the mixture stand in the fridge for at least 30 min.
6. Then shape your cookies as you want them, I used cookie cutters.
7. Lastly, place on a baking tray and bake for 10 minutes in 170 degrees Celsius (fan heated oven) . Depending on how thick they are you may need an extra minute or two. Keep a close look at them as they can burn easily due to the coconut oil.
Finally, demolish or give as a Christmas present to somebody you love.
