OATS, MACADAMIA AND CHOCOLATE COOKIES (GF, LF, VGT)



OATS, MACADAMIA AND CHOCOLATE COOKIES (GF, LF, VGT)



Autumn means shorter chilly days, warm drinks, a cozy blanket, a good book or movie and a relentlessly oven working. This time of the year my oven is exploited to the limit, all kind of baking happens almost every day... roasted veggies, cakes, muffins... and a very long etc...


That time when the stuff is baking and emanates that smell around the house...is priceless. Making cookies is easy, quick, rewarding and really worthwhile.


You can make so many flavour combinations and give them the texture you prefer. I've made them a few times with different baking times and the cooking directions are approximately as follows;
10-12 minutes > chewy-soft 
12-15 min > semi soft
15- 20 min > crumbly 
20 min > crispy

With these quantities you'll have around 10 to 13 cookies depending on how big you want them. If you want more, just double the ingredients amount.
Regarding the temperature it is true that every oven is different, as cookies don't need much baking time, just a few minutes can make a whole difference so it is best to monitor the process so they don't get burned or overcooked. We have to consider that when we take them out of the oven they still continue cooking a bit until they cool down, that's why it's recommended to use a cooling rack. 

These oats, macadamia and chocolate cookies are gluten and lactose free and if you want to make them vegan you just need to replace the chocolate chips for dairy free chocolate chunks or cacao nibs.


They are so yummy, you start with one but you don't know when you will stop... So enough talking, here's the recipe...

ELABORATION:

  1. Preheat oven to 180ºC.
  2. In a bowl mix: coconut oil + tahini + sugar + vanilla + soaked flax seeds, stir well with a whisk. 
  3. Add the baking soda + salt + flour + oat flakes + macadamias + chocolate and mix it all until incorporated. 
  4. Place some baking paper over an oven tray. Use a table spoon to scoop the dough and form them with your hands.
  5. Place them in the tray leaving some space between them and intercalating so they don't stick to each other when they get bigger while baking.
  6. Place in the middle of the oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes (less if you want them softer)
  7. Remove from the oven and place in the cooling rack.
  8. Enjoy with a homemade vegetable drink or a nice coffee or tea :)
