In my opinion, a good cookie should be thin and crisp on the outside but chewy and soft on the inside. Unfortunately, I have found many vegan cookies to be quite the opposite, rather big and cake-like.

That was until I discovered this vegan cookie recipe by Meera Sodha. She has managed to create a vegan cookie that is big and thin whilst also retaining its structure in the middle.

So I became a little bit obsessed with her recipe and found myself gradually tweaking it to experiment with flavours and the flour base. And this is where I ended up, with a vegan white chocolate & macadamia nut spelt cookie. Quite the mouthful, I know.

Servings: 12 cookies



  • Whisk up the oil, water and vanilla until fully combined and emulsified
  • Mix the flour, baking powder, bicarb, salt and sugar together in a large mixing bowl.
  • Break the nuts up into chunks and mix in to the flour
  • Pour the oily liquid into the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture comes together
  • Keep the mix in the bowl and place in the fridge for 30 minutes
  • Line a baking tray with baking paper
  • Preheat the oven to 180° degrees (fan)
  • Spoon out 12 cookies from the mix and place evenly on a baking tray, making sure to leave enough space between each one as they expand outwards
  • Bake the cookies for about 12 minutes until the cookies are golden brown and have crisped up slightly on the edges
  • Leave the cookies to cool and then eat!
