Here’s a delicious crinkle cookie recipe made with vegan or plant-based ingredients.
I make these cookies quite often, but they didn’t use to look the way I wanted them even though I have tried different tricks. I tried leaving the dough in the fridge; I also tried covering the cookies in crystal sugar before I cover them with powdered sugar. None of these worked for me. That’s why I was restraining myself from posting the recipe, although these cookies are delicious and everybody at home loves them.
However, since I started adding a little bit of coconut flour to the powdered sugar, their look is more satisfying. Another trick is to shape the cookies only after you dump pieces of the dough into the mixture of powdered sugar and coconut flour. If you have another trick, please share it in the comments!
I like using einkorn or emmer wheat flour for these cookies, but you can use any type of wheat flour you like. Even though einkorn has less gluten and is easier to digest compared to the modern types of wheat, it’s still not gluten-free, and it isn’t safe for people with celiac disease. Einkorn is also very nutritious, has more protein and less starch, and in my opinion, baked goods made with it taste really good.
Since these crinkle cookies are made with bananas and covered in powder sugar, I don’t like adding too much sugar to the dough mixture. However, you can add sugar to taste. Also, I love the combination of cacao and hazelnuts, so sometimes I replace one or two tablespoons of coconut oil with hazelnut butter. You can improvise and adjust the recipe to your liking!
I love these cookies because they are easy to make and don’t require much time to prepare. They still may not look perfect, but I promise that they taste heavenly!
