I love an easy-peasy recipe that is safe for J and I love it even more when it is a recipe my family has been using since we were little! My mum has always made these delicious vegan biscuits and calls them ‘melting moments’. As they only have 5 ingredients they are perfect for making with children and they love rolling them in the oats or coconut.
One of the great things about vegan baking is that you don’t have to worry about any raw egg so all kids can lick the bowl as much as they want!
This vegan biscuit recipe is great to whip up in record time if you need something for a last minute play date or just a sweet treat for your afternoon cup of tea. As it only relies on store cupboard ingredients you are likely to have everything you need to hand. You can always leave out the vanilla essence if you don’t have it or make them without the coating – although I recommend both!
Mum has been the original source of inspiration from some of my favourite recipes, especially my vegan chocolate cake which is always a winner and J asks for constantly! It’s amazing how many recipes are naturally vegan though or can be easily adapted and noone would ever know. These will soon become a staple in your house too I’m sure.
