It’s cookie day. I am always looking for new ideas and I found a recipe for Brownie Bites on The Vegan Chef. They are oil free which is great and I love the secret ingredient! I adapted them just slightly for my taste and here they are!
makes about 3 dozen cookies using a 1 tablespoon ice cream scooper
4 pitted prunes
3 tbsp hot water
3/4 cup vegan cane sugar
1/4 cup almond milk
1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon vanilla powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
1/4 cup walnuts
Preheat oven to 350. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, cover prunes with hot water. Transfer to processor with sugar and almond milk. Process until combined.
Sift flour and cocoa powder into a mixing bowl and add baking soda, vanilla powder, and salt. Add the prune puree along with the chips and walnuts. Combine well.
Pack a tablespoon ice cream scooper with the dough and place on the baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes. Let cool. Enjoy!
