White Chocolate Latte Cookies

DSCN0136 So I am packed and ready to begin my epic USA vegan adventure, in just a few hours. I will be posting on facebook, twitter and instagram so that you can follow my adventures with some incredible vegan bloggers, recipe testers, facebookers, instagrammers and so on. If you don’t already, get following at the links above or at the end of this post or on the right hand side of the page to keep up with all the fun! What a way to celebrate the end of another Uni year! DSCN0127 So, I thought I would leave you with a recipe before I leave and return to Bunny Kitchen in a few weeks. When I return I will be cooking up a storm for a charity bake sale sponsored by Curry’s PC World to raise money for the most incredible street child charity, StreetInvest. Not only do I get to raise money for a cause so close to my heart, but I get to bake it all in a swanky new Kenwood mixer Curry’s generously gave to me! So, the sale will take place on June 10th at Twickenham station, West London, so if any of you are around that area, come and have some cake! DSCN0144 Now for some cookies, soft, moist with just the right amount of chocolatey goodness. They taste like a creamy latte laced with vanilla. Fotor05190387

Ingredients: Makes 16 cookies

  • 115g/1/2 cup vegan margarine
  • 100g/1/2 cup unrefined brown sugar
  • 1 tsp pure stevia extract powder (or another 1/2 cup of sugar)
  • 60ml/4 tbsp hazelnut milk (or other dairy free milk)
  • 1.5 tbsp soya lecithin granules mixed with 2 tsp water (or replacer for 1/2 an egg)
  • 2 tsp instant coffee granules
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 280g/2 cups plain flour
  • 25g/1/4 cup dairy free white chocolate buttons/chips/chopped bar

Method:

  1. Cream together the margarine, sugar and stevia until light and fluffy. Mix together the hazelnut milk, lecithin mixture, coffee and vanilla, then whisk into the creamed sugar mixture.
  2. Fold in the flour, baking powder and chocolate to make a dough. Chill the dough for at least 15 minutes whilst you preheat the oven to 180’c/350’f.
  3. Line a baking tray with parchment and place heaped tablespoons of dough (42g) spaced apart on the tray (about 8 per tray) and bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges just begin to brown. Remove from the oven, leave few more minutes on the baking tray then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough if not using two trays.

    These sound so delicious Poppy!! I love the addition of the coffee granules. That’s pretty much the only way I have coffee, is in desserts, so these sound wonderful and I bet smell amazing, too!

    • Poppy says:

      Thank you Brandi! Yes the coffee is nice and subtle giving that creamy coffee flavour. I’m not keen on strong coffee flavour in desserts yet love a strong black coffee as a drink! Strange!! ❤️

  2. So excited for you Girl!!!! BE SAFE, and have a fantabulous time here.
    You must let us know about all the Veganisms that you discover ;)

    • Poppy says:

    They look delicious! :-) Have fun on your trip!

  9. Marfigs says:

    Ohhh my goodness these look great!! I am so sad that we don’t get vegan white chocolate choc chips because that would just skyrocket baking opportunities like this – I’ve even seen caramel-flavoured non-dairy chips! Lovely :D

  10. thesnowwoman says:

    I hope you have a great trip! Looking forward to seeing and hearing about it.

  11. I suppose you’re already on your way to the US!! Safe travels and I’m looking forward to seeing you in June. PS these cookies sound fantastic!

  13. Are you coming to northern Manitoba, Canada? Lol! I really think you should – come meet a fellow vegan blogger, follower of your posts & fan of the UK all while you experience what it is like to live more remotely without access to certain vegan food ingredients & no vegan restaurants!! It will be tour highlight! Hahaha. Anyway, there’s my little plug for the north. :) I hope you have a fantastic trip & enjoy all the good food & wonderful people you are sure to meet.
    Happy trails!

    Wow, with all these ingredients it must be delicious. I was just wondering have you tried to make it without coffee granules and how does it taste?

    • Poppy says:

      Thank you! I haven’t tried without the coffee since they were developed to be a latte flavoured cookie, the coffee flavour is very mild and creamy but I’m sure they would still be delicious if it were omitted :D
