Eggless Chocolate Walnut Cookies | Brownie Cookies Recipe
To mark start of the year I’m posting this soft, crunchy and delicious Eggless Chocolate Walnut Cookies. I like to bake cookies more than cake as you can see I have few cookie recipes posted, this is again one of the easy eggless cookie recipe & I baked this cookies for my nephew as for him anything as to be chocolate like I made for him Eggless Chocolate Cookies and Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies. But for me more than chocolate walnut cookies it’s like Brownie cookies, as it taste like brownie, soft, dense and delicious.
Honey can be good sweetener in baking cause of it’s rich flavour and texture, cause of honey the cookie stays moist & edges doesn’t becomes hard/crisp and walnut gives the good crunch. These cookies are so simple to prepare with minimal ingredients and can be put together in around 20 minutes. Double the recipe to bake this for large batch, but I suggest start with the listed quantity, this cookie recipe is so easy that it actually doesn’t require step wise pictures, just put everything together, mix and bake..can it get simple than this?
You can dust the cookies with icing sugar for festive season like Christmas and New Year, if you wish or have it as it is. I personally like these beauties as this so I dusted the sugar to only one cookie.
[Makes 12-15 cookies]
Plain Flour – 1 Cup
Brown Sugar – 1/4 Cup
Cocoa Powder – 1 tbsp
Baking Powder – 1 tsp
Baking Soda – 1/2 tsp
Salt – a pinch
Honey – 1/3 Cup
Vegetable Oil – 1/4 Cup
Vanilla Extract/Essence – 1 tsp
Chopped Walnut – 1/3 Cup
Icing Sugar – To dust cookies [optional]
1. Preheat oven to 180C or 350F.
2. Ina bowl whisk together plain flour, cocoa powder, baking powder & soda, sugar and salt.
3. In another bowl whisk oil, honey and vanilla extract well until everything is combine. Add this to flour mixture and mix everything well until smooth dough forms.
~ If the dough is sticky then add 1-2 tbsp of plain flour and mix again. If you think moisture is more then refrigerate the dough for 20-30 minutes and then bake.
4. Now add chopped walnut and mix well again. Divide the dough into equal portion of 12 to 15 pieces and shape into rounds.
5. Place a inch apart these on a baking tray line with baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges becomes light brown. Cool completely on wire rack and store.
~ Keep a eye on cookies after 10 minutes.
Dust the cookies with powder sugar to make it look snowball cookies.
Due to honey these cookies stays fresh @ room temperature even after 2 weeks, but during summer you may want to store this in fridge.
Have a look at the texture.
~ Press the cookie dough to flat and then bake if you wish or just leave it round and bake, while it’s baking it forms the shape.
~ You can add 1/3 cup of chocolate chip for the extra chocolate kick, add together with walnut.
~ If you don’t like chocolate then ignore the cocoa powder and make it as walnut cookies.
~ If you don't want to bake the cookies immediately then wrap the bowl with a cling, refrigerate and bake when ready.
