the best vegan ccc recipe.

This is it. After baking (and eating) so many different recipes, we finally nailed in a super easy recipe that gives us the perfect chocolate chip cookies. Want to know the secret? Fold in a chia egg to achieve that ‘crunchy on the edges, chewy in the middle’ texture, bitter sweet and decadent aftertaste. Just in time for Christmas!

You will never miss the traditional chocolate chip cookies anymore, promise.

the only egg you should be eating. 

When we first started switching our meat portions with more plants and nuts, we came to realise that the hardest food we had to get an alternative for, is egg. Maybe it had to do with the fact that we bake almost everything with eggs. Without eggs, our baked goods lose their structure and texture. They crumble and harden, which spells catastrophe when it comes to baking.

Moving forward to late 2015, we discovered the perfect vegan alternative: chia egg. Why perfect, you ask? It offers that same runny, gooey texture which acts as a binder, adds a bundle of nutritional values such as dietary fibre, Omega-3 fatty acids to your baked goods and provides you a quite substantial amount of complete plant protein.

Also, let us not forget the fact that chia egg is absolutely animal-friendly. In case you haven’t heard, egg farms are not exactly how you might remember them from your class trip. They are, in reality, brutal and unethical.

side notes.

We strongly recommend Harmony® Previa for this recipe due to its ability in gelling up, mimicking the slimy, gooey texture of an egg. Plus its high digestibility and better nutrient absorption compared to regular chia seeds.

You can substitute Harmony® Previa with our Harmony® Halvia chia seeds, if you would like.

fun facts.

Harmony® Previa is a naturally sweetened micro-milled chia powder with added soluble fibre.

High in Omega-3 fatty acids, plant protein complete with all essential amino acids, dietary fibre, antioxidants and essential minerals. Beats inflammation very well too.
