Truth time: I had a super fancy recipe idea for this week, but after several failed attempts (read four…) to nail that recipe, I tossed it all and stomped out of the kitchen, out of the house. I was so pissed – at first. Then I felt a little sorry for myself. After a cool-down period, I sulked back into the kitchen, apologized to my beloved food processor, which I just tossed in the nearest corner and got back to work. Alas, maybe that fancy recipe will make it to the blog in a couple of weeks. What I’m sharing with you today, turned out pretty darn good too: vegan chocolate chip cookies y’all!
The nutty amaranth and the dark chocolate go together so smoothly, like magic. They’re crisp, yet not dry and suitable for those with gluten sensitivity or nut allergy (no gluten, no nuts). How cool is that?

This recipe for vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies is:
- Vegan (no dairy, no eggs)
- No added white sugars
The dark chocolate paired with the nutty amaranth, make for a perfect taste combo in these vegan and gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookies.
- 120 g buckwheat flour
- 30 g amaranth
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 pinch of salt
- 3 tbsp. macadamia oil
- 100 g Pekmez (grape molasses)
- 1 tsp. vanilla essence
- 100 g almond butter
- 1 tbsp. arrowroot flour
- 150 g dark chocolate
Add the buckwheat, amaranth, salt and baking powder to a bowl and combine well. Set aside. In your food processor, blend the almond butter, grape molasses and vanilla together. Add the arrowroot powder and blend again. Add the sticky mix to your flour mix, combine and add the chopped dark chocolate.
Line a baking tray with parchment and preheat your oven to 180 degrees C. Form about half your palm-sized balls of dough. Place them on the baking tray and press them flat slightly. Continue with the rest of the dough. When you're done, place the tray in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Last but not least, bake them for 15 minutes.

Hi there! I created Miss Walter’s to include loved ones with dietary restraints (chosen or not) at the dessert table. I share all my favourite vegan dessert recipes with you so that you can do the same. Because sharing food has the power to unite us, so let’s not get our diet in the way of eating and sharing delicious cakes.
