INGREDIENTS

  • 1 and 1/2 cups (144g) Rolled Oats
  • 1 cup (125g) All Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup (80g) Dried Coconut (dessicated)
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 cup (200g) Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup (112g) Vegan Butter
  • 3 Tbsp Golden Syrup (or Maple Syrup)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tbsp Soy Milk

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Add the rolled oats, flour, coconut, baking soda, salt and cinnamon to a mixing bowl and mix together.
  3. Cream the vegan butter and brown sugar together and then add the syrup and vanilla.
  4. Then mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients by hand. Stirring until the mixture is very crumbly.
  5. Add the soy milk and mix in. Check if you can roll some of it into a ball – it should be sticky enough to do so. It will still be crumbly and look almost as if it’s still too dry, but when you try and make a ball you’ll find it’s also very sticky. If it’s still too crumbly, add a tiny bit more soy milk until it’s sticky enough to roll into balls. When rolling into balls, you’ll find that you’re more pressing them into balls than rolling, this is fine, press into a ball and then roll a bit to make it nice and round and even.
  6. Place the rolled balls onto a parchment lined baking tray.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes. The edges should be firm and the tops lightly browned. They will be soft but will firm up while cooling.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before transferring to wire cooling rack to cool completely.

Chocolate Fudge Icing

 

undefined

You will need

  • 5 oz of butter
  • 5 oz of icing sugar, sifted
  • 4 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons of milk
    Method

Slowly and gently melt the butter in a pan (skim it if you want to to remove excess salt and impurities).
Add the cocoa and up the heat, cooking it gently for a minute or so, then add the icing sugar.

Add the milk gradually (you’ll know when to do this, as the icing sugar will eventually make your cocoa and butter the consistency of cement) and keep stirring until you have a glossy, smooth paste.

Allow it to cool, and then use half to sandwich your cake together, and half for the topping. It looks fabulous and tastes divine.
