Raw Cacao Oat Cookies with Raspberries & Chopped Almonds

100% Plant Based
Course Dessert, Snack
Servings 8 large cookies

Ingredients
  

CHIA SEEDS MIXTURE:

  • - 4 tbsp chia seeds
  • - 8 tbsp of unsweetened oat milk
  • (mix it together and let it stand till it becomes little jelly like consistency)

COOKIES INGREDIENTS:

  • - 200 g fine gluten free oats (or with gluten if you don’t mind - theoretically oats don’t contain gluten, but unless it is indicated on the label they might be contaminated with gluten in the factory, it is very common and is not a problem, unless someone has a gluten intolerance)
  • - 1 tsp baking powder (similar “issue” make sure it is without gluten, it can also contain traces of gluten)
  • - 2 tbsp cinnamon (I use ceylon kind - that is actually the true form of cinnamon and most nutritious)
  • - 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • - 0.5 tsp vanilla powder
  • - 3 tbsp peanut butter creamy type
  • - 100 ml unsweetened oat milk extra (you used 8 spoons already with chia seeds)
  • - 3 tbsp date syrup or maple syrup (I like date syrup for the distinct flavor)
  • - 2 tsp stevia
  • - 100-150 g frozen raspberries (can be fresh, but they will bake very mushy)
  • - 20 g chopped almonds
  • - 20 g vegan choco chips
  • - 0.5 tsp virgin coconut oil for greasing the baking sheet

Instructions
 

  • Method:
    Preheat the oven to 200 C
    Once chia seeds and oat milk become like a jelly, add peanut butter into the mixture and mix it well, add all the fluid ingredients - syrup, stevia, remaining oat milk.
    In a separate bowl add all the dry ingredients, pour liquid mix into the bowl and mix everything well.
    Taste it, see if you need any extra sweetness or spice.
    Depending what size cookies you want you can yield anything from 12 small cookies to 8 large ones. Split the dough into balls and decide on the size.
    Spread the coconut oil on a baking sheet and place balls on the paper, flatten them to 3 mm thickness more or less.
    Dress the cookies with chocolate chips, raspberries and chopped almonds. Slightly squeeze all those “ornaments” into the cookie so they will bake in.
    Bake for 10 minutes and enjoy when chilled.
    If you like them even sweeter once they are chilled, you can glaze them with extra syrup.
    But...remember - sugar is sugar and you can enjoy less sweetness if you train your palate.
