Chia Choc Cookies
Simple and tasty cookies, perfect for school and work lunch boxes. Make a big batch on a Sunday afternoon to last the week ahead.
2 tbsp of white Chia seeds or ground Chia
⅓ cup water
⅓ cup coconut oil
1¼ cup wholemeal flour
1 cup vegan choc chips or cacao nibs
½ cup coconut sugar or alternative
Seeds from one vanilla bean pod
½ tsp baking powder
Heat oven to 180°C. Soak the Chia seeds in the water for 5 minutes until a gel forms. Mix the sugar and oil together, whisking until combined well. Add the flour, baking powder and vanilla. Stir until mixed thoroughly. Add the Chia seed ‘gel’ and chocolate chips or nibs and fold through. Arrange on a baking tray and cook for 10 – 15 minutes. Use a dessert spoon and place onto baking paper. Space them accordingly. To make chewy cookies, bake for about 10 – 12 minutes or bake longer for crispy cookies.
