Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

I baked these last night (I'm not sure why I'm underlined...I'll get the hang of this eventually I hope..must have pressed something wierd and I don't know how to put it back!).. anyway, I baked these cookies last night and they were great! I'm now wishing I'd measured everything a bit more carefully but I'll post my rough measurements.

3/4 cup WW flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
1tsp baking powder
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2/3 cup brown sugar

about 1 cup soy milk or slightly less.. add slowly!! I added half a cup but it wasn't enough so I just added more until it was the right consistency
1tsp peppermint extract
1 flax egg

Pre-heat the oven to 175c. Make the flax egg with 1 tbsp of ground flax and 3 tbsp of warm water and set aside. Mix the wet into the dry then stir in about half a bar of plamil mint chocolate all smashed up. Spoon onto a cookie sheet and bake for about 8-10 mins

Enjoy fresh from the oven with a cup of warm chocolate oat milk!

EDIT: I have since found out chocolate oatly and also normal enriched oatly are not vegan. I assumed they were a vegan company since they specialised in non-dairy oat milk but no, they have vitamin D from sheeps wool in their products. Annoying, much. No more chocolate oatly for me :(


  1. Mmm, cookies! They look great!
    (I heard this recently about the Oatly Milk, it's just daft! Who exactly is that product aimed at then? So many things could be vegan if they didn't add vitamin D3 or Omega 3 to them! I despair!)

  2. Thanks - I know the oatly thing is nuts, I'm certainly going to email them and express my annoyance, I loved hot chocolate oatly too, how annoying. I hate it when companies do that it's so pointless, like sosmix adding milk, yeah that's right, alienate most of your target consumers... that's a wise move.. tsk tsk
