How to make
Firstly, in a large bowl, I combined oat flour, rolled oats, baking powder and salt. Then, I kept it aside.
Secondly, in a microwavable bowl, I combined white chocolate chips, dairy free milk and vanilla extract. Then, at high for 20 seconds I warmed it up and stirred it vigorously with a spoon to melt. Then, I kept it aside.
Next, I poured the melted chocolate and mashed banana into the flour mixture and mixed it well with a spoon.
Thereafter, I folded in more white chocolate chips and dried cranberries into the batter.
After that, I let it rest for 5 minutes at room temperature. This helps in soaking the extra liquid.
Afterwards, I scooped 8 round balls on the prepared cookie sheet and shaped them into small flat round cookies with the back of a stainless steel spoon. I garnished each of the with the remaining chips and cranberries.
Then, I placed it in the middle rack of the oven and baked for 20 minutes. After that, I turned off the oven and took it out. Subsequently, I Placed it on a flat counter and shaped them again with a small bowl while they were still hot.
Now, I let them cool down completely to room temperature without disturbing further.
As they cool down the edges become crisp and they firm up. Once, completely cooled they leave the baking sheet themselves.
My girls declared that these were the best vegan white chocolate cookies ever.
Room temperature – You may store them in a cookie jar at room temperature for a day.
Refrigerator – Once they are cooled down refrigerate them in an air tight container for about 2 weeks. Oven toast them for 1-2 minutes and let them cool or enjoy as is.
Freezer – Once completely cooled freeze them in a freezer friendly box or Ziploc for about 2 months. Oven toast them for 2-3 minutes and let them cool before serving.
- It is important to let the batter sit at room temperature before scooping for the oats to absorb extra liquid and moisture for the chewy texture with crisp edges.
- Make sure to melt the chips only for 20 seconds and then whip it vigorously. Do not over cook or else it will burn.
Originally they are not vegan but recently I found online that few companies are making vegan version. Most of them are pretty good. The popular ones are Lieber’s, Enjoy life, King David.
Yes, chopped prunes or raisins also works in this recipe.
No! I have used oats and the batter just needs to sit for 5 minutes at room temperature.
