{ Recipe } Devonshire Coconut Chews – Healthy Vegan Cookies



veggie magnifique vegan cookies

The inspiration for these delectable bites of goodness came when I was exploring my parents’ beautiful seaside town in Devon, England. On a walk with my little nieces, we stumbled upon a lovely little café called Lollie Bean. Which – joy of joys – sold homemade vegan energy balls. They were absolutely delicious and a real life saver for my grumbling tummy, so I just had to ask for the recipe.

Armed with the ingredients list, we had great fun making a mess in the kitchen and then sharing our creations with the rest of the family. And back in Paris, I had even more fun playing around with the recipe, and tried baking them in the oven, too. (I’m an incorrigible cookie monster.) They were even more delish – crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside. Yummm. So we decided we just had to share this recipe with you.

These cookies are filled with good fats and omega 3s, in addition to being delectable. And the recipe calls for simple ingredients – I certainly make sure I always have them all in my pantry, for drop-of-a-hat cookie parties.

    Hey Veggie-buddies! I have a question: are the ground flaxseeds dry when you first put them in? since you mentioned that they’re a great egg substitute when you add a bit of water I was wondering…also is there an emergency substitute for brown rice syrup (like maple syrup??) I want to make these TODAY and it’s sunday so the stores that would carry the rice syrup are cloooosed…

      Hey Barbara! So happy you’re trying the recipe out – hooray! The flax goes in dry (sorry for the confusion) and maple syrup would be absolutely divine I’m sure. Hope you enjoyed them!
