Ingredients

  • 150 g plain (all-purpose) flour see notes
  • 1 tsp baking powder see notes
  • 70 g caster or golden caster sugar
  • 20 g dark cocoa or cacao powder see notes
  • 125 g vegan block butter or margarine (softenend) see notes
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract optional
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4.
  • Put vegan baking spread/butter, sugar and vanilla extract (if using) in a large bowl and using wooden spoon or hand mixer beat until nice and pale.
  • Sieve flour, baking powder, cocoa/cacao and salt into the bowl and mix until combined and dough starts coming together. At the end you might have to use your hand to gather the dough into a ball.
  • Divide the dough into small, walnut size balls and put them on prepared baking tray. Make sure you leave some space in between the balls.
  • Using fork flatten each of the balls gently to make a chocolate fork biscuit shape.
  • Bake in preheated oven for approx. 15 minutes. Let them cool on the baking tray for 5 minutes before transferring them onto the cooling rack.

Notes

  • Nutritional information is approximate, per biscuit and should be treated as a guideline only. 
  • You can use self-raising flour instead of plain flour and baking powder. 
  • There is no need to use baking powder if using self-raising flour. 
  • Feel free to use regular unsalted butter and regular unsweetened cocoa powder for your biscuits if yo don't need or want them to be vegan. 
  • See "Ingredients" paragraph above for vegan product I use and recommend for this recipe.
