Vegan Cookies – FAQs:
1. How Can You Replace Eggs and Milk in Vegan Cookies?
It’s really easy to replace eggs and milk in vegan cookies.
Instead of cow’s milk you can use a plant-based milk alternative such as almond milk or soy milk. You can find them in basically every supermarket these days.
Replacing eggs is a bit more difficult, but it’s still very easy.
Instead of eggs you could use:
- flaxseeds or chia seeds
- store-bought vegan egg replacers
- or even aquafaba (the liquid from canned chickpeas)
All of these egg replacements work similar to eggs in baked goods. Bananas for example add moisture while flaxseeds work really well for binding. Check out this helpful article on vegan egg replacement for even more information.
2. Can You Freeze Vegan Cookies?
Yes, freezing vegan cookies works really well. However, you should pay attention not to make some common mistakes when freezing cookies.
Baked Cookies will keep in the freezer for about a month. It’s important to let the cookies cool down completely before freezing them.
Besides, it’s best to freeze them individually on a baking sheet first and then transfer them to a freezer bag after. Otherwise they might stick together. This is especially the case with peanut butter cookies and other sticky kinds of cookies.
When defrosting baked cookies, make sure to take them out of the freezer bag or container, so they don’t become soggy because of condensation.
However, you could also freeze cookie dough. It will last in the freezer up to 3 months. When freezing cookie dough, shape the dough into balls. Just like you normally would when you’re making cookies.
Freeze them on a baking sheet for about an hour and then transfer them to freezer bags. Remember to write the date and the name of the cookies on the outside of your freezer bag. Maybe it’s also a good idea to add the baking instructions on the outside of the freezer bag.
3. Can You Make Vegan Cookies without Sugar?
Yes, making vegan cookies without sugar is possible. If you’re looking for healthy cookies, this is definitely the right place!
A great way to make sugar-free cookies is by using bananas or dates as a sweetener. My chocolate banana cookies are a great example. I used two mashed bananas to sweeten them, which worked really well. They make a great and healthy snack.
So let’s get started with all the delicious cookies!!
