This collection worth £25 would make a fabulous gift (you could even give the separate components as small gifts) or a wonderful chocolate centrepiece over the Christmas celebrations.

You can totally leave out the pecans and raisins for a plain chocolate chip cookie, or do as I often do and split the dough, leave one with just chocolate chips and add (half the amount) the pecans and raisins to the other half. Or you could add vegan white chocolate chips or some orange zest for some extra pizzazz!

Ingredients: Makes about 36 cookies

  • 200g/1 cup minus 2 tbsp vegan butter
  • 100g/1/2 cup soft dark sugar
  • 100g/1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp dark agave syrup (or golden syrup)
  • 300g/2 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 40g/1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 200g/1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 100g/1 cup pecan pieces
  • 50g/1/3 cup raisins (I like to use cherry infused raisins)

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 180’C/350’F and line one or two baking trays with parchment/
  • Cream together the vegan butter, sugars, vanilla and syrup until well blended.
  • Sift over the flour and cocoa powder and mix to a stiff dough. Work in the chocolate chips, pecans and raisins until uniformly dispersed.
  • Place 2 tbsp balls (an ice cream scoop is good here) about 2 inches apart on your baking sheets. Press down with a glass or the palm of your hand as they don’t spread much during baking.
  • Bake for 12 minutes then remove from the oven, leave for about a minute on the tray to firm up slightly then carefully transfer to a cooling rack to cool and harden.
