Ingredients

24 oz./60 g bittersweet/dark vegan chocolate, broken into pieces
65 ml sunflower oil
75 ml soy(a) milk
200 g rice, maple, or agave syrup
4 teaspoon bourbon vanilla powder
1 cup/125 g unbleached all-purpose/plain flour
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
4 teaspoon baking powder
4 teaspoon sea salt
4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Baking sheet, lined with parchment paper
As a counterpoint to the explosion of sugar outlined in the last recipe, these vegan cookies are full of cocoa flavor and not overly sweet, satisfying your chocolate craving the second you take a first bife. Definitely one for the more sophisticated hangover sufferer.

Instructions

1.Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water.
2.Take care not to let the underside of the bowl touch the surface of the water. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the oil, milk, syrup, and vanilla powder.
3. Add the melted chocolate. Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C/Gas 4. Place a strainer/sieve over the bowl containing the liquid ingredients
4.Put the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon directly in the strainer and sift everything until it passes through the net.
5.Use a spatula to incorporate all the ingredients into a smooth batter. It should not slide down the spoon-if it does, chill the batter in the fridge for 10 minutes.
6.Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and, using a tablespoon, drop the batter onto it, 2 in./1 cm apart. Bake for 12-14 minutes
7.The dough is dark to start with, so it's easy to burn the cookies, and you want them still soft to the touch when you remove them from the oven.
8.So check for doneness after 12 minutes, and bake them for no longer than 14 minutes.
9.Remove from the oven, slip the baking sheet with cookies onto the countertop or a cold tray, and let cool. Store in a cookie jar for a week or so.
