Chunky Chocolate & Pistachio Cookies




It was about time I baked some cookies! So I checked the cupboards, bought some chocolate and created these chunky circles of goodness.

Chunky Chocolate & Pistachio Cookies









Chunky Chocolate & Pistachio Cookies




Ingredients


100g Vegan Butter
100g Caster Sugar
1 Tbsp Flax or Chia Seeds (with 3 Tbsp water)
2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
175g Plain Flour
75g Pistachio nuts (roughly chopped)
75g Dark chocolate (roughly chopped)
                                                                                            





Method


 - Preheat oven to Fan 180 C / 200 C / Gas Mark 6

1. Mix Butter and Sugar together

2. Add Chia (or Flax) seeds and Vanilla extract

3. Fold in Flour and mix until you have a slightly hard but smooth dough

4. Add the Chocolate and Pistachios and knead till fully incorporated.

Add Almond milk (or water) 1 Tsp at a time if dough is too dry.

(Optional: after step 4, cover dough loosely with cling film and refrigerate for about 15 minutes)*
 5. Take equal sized chunks of the dough (or use a spoon or an ice cream scoop) and roll them into a ball





 6. Place them equal spaces apart on a lined tray and press down lightly to flatten them a little

7. Bake for 20-25 minutes.



Enjoy!





* This can help keep the biscuits from spreading and losing shape whilst baking. It can also improve the consistency and taste of them.
