Are Vegan Cookies Good For Your Skin?
Here at the office you’ll find our staff is full of foodies! We know it’s no secret “you are what you eat”, and how important it is to put healthful food into our bodies. The skin can be a direct reflection of our bodies’ health, and the Timeless staff values nourishing the skin from the inside out. Our vegan foodie, Emilyjo, loves to bring in vegan baked goods for the whole office and will often substitute butters & oils with coconut oil in her baking!
This week she brought us “Vacation Cookies” from her favorite vegan baker (Chloe Coscarelli). Find out here Emilyjo’s twist on the perfect summer cookie:
¾ cup all-purpose (unbleached) flour
¾ cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup virgin coconut oil
½ cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1½ cups rolled oats
½ cup shredded coconut (sweetened)
½ cup dark (vegan) chocolate chips
½ cup chopped almonds
Whisk together the flours, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, stir together the coconut oil, syrup, and vanilla.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until combined.
Fold in the oats, shredded coconut, almonds, and chocolate chips.
Scoop 1½ to 2 tablespoons of dough onto parchment-lined baking sheets.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes until the edges of the cookies are golden.
Coconut oil has been coined a “superfood” for many reasons, and find out here how it can improve your skin and reduce the signs of aging.
