Vegan cocoa sesame biscuits

January 14, 2017

I love these biscuits for their distinctive nutty taste and their chewiness. I also like to kid myself that the sesame seeds make them healthy.

 

For the biscuits

  • 100g plain flour

  • 35g cocoa powder

  • 75g rolled oats

  • 150g sesame seeds

  • 200g caster sugar

  • 100g dairy free margarine

  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup

  • 1 tablespoon boiling water

  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

For the topping (optional)

  • 200g dark dairy free chocolate

  • 100ml coconut milk or cream

  • 25g sesame seeds

 

Pre-heat the oven to 160 degrees C and line two baking trays with parchment. 

 

Mix the flour, cocoa, oats, sesame seeds and sugar in a bowl.

 

Gently melt the margarine and golden syrup In a pan.

 

Pour the 1 tablespoon of boiling water into a cup, add the bicarbonate of soda, mix well and add this to the melted margarine.

 

Fold the mixture into the dry ingredients then roll into balls and place them on the baking trays. Flatten them slightly with the palm of your hand.

 

Bake for about 12 minutes, then remove from the oven and allow to cool and harden for 5 minutes on the trays, then transfer to a wire rack.

 

While the biscuits are cooling, gently melt the chocolate and coconut milk/cream and mix to form a smooth ganache. Spoon onto each biscuit, smoothing with the back of a teaspoon, and decorate with sesame seeds.
