Vegan hazelnut cookies
- 1 cup oat flour (make by processing quick cooking oats in a food processor)
- 0.5 cup ground hazelnuts
- 0.5 cup whole dates (about 12 – 16 dates)
- 2 tbs ground flaxseed
- 0.5 cup unsweetened plant milk
- 0.5 tsp cinnamon
- 0.5 tsp baking powder
- 0.25 tsp baking soda
- no sugar added fruit jam
Use some of the plant milk to soak up the dates for 10 minutes, just so they are covered.
Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
Process the dates into paste. Then mix it in together with dry mixture.
If it’s too dry, add the rest of milk and mix well until properly combined. The mixture should hold together but shouldn’t be too wet. If it is, add a little bit more oat flour.
Start making cookies by first forming small balls which you place on a baking tray with parchment paper. Then press in the middle of each ball with your finger to create space for jam.
After you’ve filled all the cookies with jam, bake at 175 degrees for 20 – 25 minutes until golden.
Let cool and enjoy.
