This recipe for one bite vegan cookies was born out of a desire to recreate a cookie mix that I had found at Trader Joes the other day. It was completely vegan, paleo, anti-inflammatory, easy, and most importantly, delicious. My only issue with the boxed mix, was that it was too sweet. So I set about measuring, baking, and tasting, and three attempts later, voila!
Not only am I impressed that this worked, but my one bite vegan cookies are better—humble brag. They hold together, which is usually the main issue with vegan, grain-free cookies, and are soft, chewy, and flavorful. The benefit of one bite cookies? One bite! These are the perfect little dose of something sweet, without feeling overwhelming or over-indulgent.
I chose to make these one bite vegan cookies super small, which made for fun eating, but it does require a bit of patience during the scooping out and rolling process. If you are pressed for time, you can easily make them a more “normal” cookie size, just adjust the baking time a couple minutes longer!
One Bite Vegan Cookies
Yields about 36 small cookies or 12 medium cookies
1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup coconut sugar
2 T. coconut flour
1 T. xanthan gum
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. vanilla
1/2 t. salt
3 T. coconut oil
3 T. coconut milk
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat and set aside.
2. Mix together all the dry ingredients in a medium bowl, minus the chocolate chips.
3. Melt the coconut oil and pour over the dry ingredients. Add one tablespoon of milk at a time, stirring in between each addition. If you’re making larger cookies, stir in the chocolate chips. Or if you’re going for one bite cookies, press one chip into each cookie after rolling.
4. Scoop out roughly a teaspoon of cookie dough. Use your fingers to press it into a ball. Place on the cookie sheet and press down to create a thick disc. Continue with remaining dough.
5. Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown and fragrant.
6. MOST IMPORTANT STEP: Allow cookies to cool completely before enjoying. This final step is when the cookies are solidifying.
Store cookies in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
