These vegan black and white cookies are a must try if you love the classic New York City recipe but are looking for a healthier variation to enjoy without guilt.
Prepared without butter, wheat, and eggs, these biscuits are also gluten-free and have nutritious ingredients like:
Oat: it's a fibre-rich wheat replacement. To prepare homemade oat flour, just blitz oat flakes in a blender until finely ground. Easy!
Flaxseeds: when mixed with water they make a low-fat egg replacement which is loaded with omega-3, fibres, and proteins.
Maple syrup: it's a delicious natural sweetener with half the sugars you have in white sugar.
Dark chocolate: if you use 70% and above varieties, you are eating fewer sugars and getting good antioxidants.
With so many healthy ingredients these black and white cookies have fewer calories than the classic recipe: with only 83 kcal, 1.3 g of saturated fats, and 2.9 g of sugars per biscuit they make for a sweet yet diet-friendly treat.
