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.
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.
