Oat bran and currants cookies

Serving suggestion - Breakfast
To make the vegan currants cookies you will need:
  • 1 glass of oatbran
  • ¼ glass of rice milk
  • 2 table spoons of sunflour oil
  • 1 apple (your choice)
  • handful of grapes
  • A tea spoon full of grape fruit zest (didn’t have lemon to hand)
  • A hand full of dry currants. & 1 pinch of salt
In a mixer, blend together the peeled apple, grapes, half of the dry currants, 1 spoon of oil, and half the milk.  Once blitzed, pour the melange in a mixing bowl and add in your oatbran (flour).

Mix it all well; add in the pinch of salt and whole dry currents. Leave the paste aside for about 25 minutes. For the bran to absorb the liquidised fruits and soften.

Preheat the oven at 175c.

Once the paste is ready, use a tea spoon to measure the size of dough per cookie. Shape your cookies and place them on a baking dish or tray.
Don’t forget to spray the rest of oil on your baking tray before placing the cookies on it.
Place the tray in the oven and leave to cook for 40 minutes. Mine got slightly burned because I forgot how easily the sugar (from the fruits) can burn, so, keep an eye on yer cookies.
When time is up, get the tray out. Put the cookies on a plate upside down to cool. Upside down because cookies are slightly thicker, this will allow the bottom of the cookies to finish drying. Remember that oatbran is much stickier that plain flour.
They actually taste really nice. You wouldn’t know that no butter, eggs nor sugar were used to make them.
I will definitely make them again with coconut milk. Keep your eyes peeled and let me know how yours tastes.
C ya!
