Makes about 24
100g coconut oil, chilled until solid
250g brown sugar
2 tbsp vanilla extract
60ml coconut milk
4 tbsp unsweetened apple sauce
280g plain flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
½ tsp salt
300g vegan chocolate chips
Flaked sea salt
- Preheat the oven to 190˚C/170˚C fan/gas mark 5. Line two large baking trays with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a large bowl whisk together the coconut oil, brown sugar and vanilla extract. Beat until well combined.
- Add the coconut milk and apple sauce and whisk until well combined.
- In a separate bowl, combine the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Whisk well to combine.
- Add the dry ingredients into the wet and beat together into a thick batter using a wooden spoon. The batter will be very thick! Fold in the chocolate chips.
- Scoop mounds of dough around the size of two tablespoons onto the prepared baking trays, leaving 4-5cm between them to allow the cookies to spread.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are golden. Sprinkle with sea salt. Allow to cool on the baking tray for 15 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
