Vegan Chocolate and Lime Cookies

For me, part of being green is to cook my own food.  I occasionally like a treat so this is my recipe for Vegan Chocolate and Lime Cookies.

Vegan Chocolate and Lime Cookies


zest of one lime.

1/2 cup of plain flour

1tsp baking powder

1 small packet vegan chocolate buttons

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup vitalite or vegan margarine

1/4 cup caster sugar and 1 tbsp

Chop the lime finely and put 2/3 into a mixing bowl, put the rest aside.  Add to the mixing bowl, the flour, baking powder, sugar, margarine and coconut oil.  I used the coconut oil solid and worked the mixture until it was melted.  Kneed together ingredients with your hands until all fats are dissolved and you have a dough.  Chop the chocolate buttons and add, kneed them in.  Take a small piece of mixture into your hand and roll into a ball, slightly larger than a walnut and place onto a baking tray with parchment, press your thumb into the centre to make a dent, you don’t see it when cooked, but it helps them spread evenly.  Chop together the sugar and zest until you get a lime sugar and sprinkle onto each cookie.  Cook on 190 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes, check after 15, they should be golden.

    • They actually are! We recently gave up most dairy, mainly because in the UK many dairy farms feed their cows items other than grass which creates bacteria in their stomachs, they then need injecting with antibiotics to remedy that. I used to feel sick in the mornings and my sister recently told me the same, when she quit dairy she felt better. So even though I am not vegan (I’m pescatarian, Vegetarian who eats fish occasionally) you will probably see some recipes on here 😀
