Chocolate cat cookies with Oreo O's Cereal (Vegan)
Last weekend was my friend Lucrezia's birthday.
She loves cats so I made her these Chocolate cat cookies with Oreo O's Cereal to celebrate!
Aren't they cute? 😍😍 I loved them.
They are crunchy, chocolatey and super delicious! Oh, and they are vegan too 😋
Check out the recipe below this picture and give it a try!
225g all purpose flour
25g cocoa powder
125g brown sugar*
70g vegetable oil
8g baking powder
pinch of salt
--- CAT EYES ---
In a big bowl sift together flour, baking powder, vanilla, cocoa powder and salt.
In a separate bowl mix together the liquid ingredients: sugar, water and vegetable oil.
Pour the liquids into the big bowl and mix with a spatula until everything is well incorporated and you can form a ball of dough.
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap, and place it in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
Roll out the dough on wax paper, using flour where necessary so it doesn’t stick to your rolling pin, or the counter.
Cut the dough into cat shapes using a cookie cutter and place them onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper (They won't spread much during the cooking process so you can probably fit 4-6 cookies at the time).
Bake for about 5 minutes. Let it cool on the baking sheet then transfer onto a plate.
Melt a small quantity of dark chocolate and draw pupils on top of Oreo O's Cereal with a toothpick or a decorative pen. Glue them on the surface with the remaining melted chocolate. Let it harden for a few minutes before serving.
*I've used a combination of Demerara sugar and dark brown sugar. Luckily I didn't use only Demerara sugar otherwise they would turn out very bad. The problem with that kind of sugar is that the grains are too thick, they won't melt and the will come out after baking giving a weird texture to your cookies. So I suggest using light brown sugar or granulated sugar for this recipe.
**You can use 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract if you don't have vanilla powder.
You can chill the dough in the fridge for a couple of days to make it in advance and you can also freeze the dough for a month or so.
I've adapted this recipe from here.
If you make it let me know! :)
