You sometimes need motivation to get something kickstarted in your life, and cooking vegan for me was totally inspired by my adorable brother Abhinav. Being Vegan can be difficult... but cooking Vegan really isnt. Since really long Ive just been thinking of trying my hands on some Vegan recipes , and atlast i did it today just for you abhi.
This recipe is super easy and hardly takes any time, Almost all the ingredients will be in your shelf. While they were baking in my oven the house smelt buttery, coconutty, almondy.... In short Heavenly.
Vegan Almond Coconut Cookies.
2 cups Unbleached Flour
2 cups Roasted Almonds
1/2 cup Maple Syrup
1/4 cup Cane sugar
1 tsp Coconut essence
1/2 tsp Baking pwd
1/4 tsp Salt.
Pre-heat your oven at max temperature for about 10 min, Spread your almonds on a baking try and roast for about 5 min until crunchy. Cool down to room temperature.
Add your roasted almonds, Maple syrup, cane sugar, coconut essence in a chopper/grinder n blend to a coarse paste.
In another bowl sieve the dry ingredients and then add the wet paste to this. This should turn out to be a sticky dough like consistency.
Spread a sheet of parchment paper on your baking tray, make balls out of the dough and press them down with the help of a fork to make them little flat. Spread them at a distance to give them space to expand.
Bake a 180 deg for about 10 min.
Enjoy them with a hot cuppa coffee or tea :)
