Vegan Dry Fruits & Chocolate Cookies

My baking adventures with brown rice flour continues, yeah am enjoying making out few delicious bakes with brown rice flour since from few days, personnally i love the bakes with brown rice flour now and u know wat the 2kgs of brown rice flour which i bought from the organic shop is almost getting finished, today i prepared this vegan dry fruits and chocolate cookies with silken tofu mixed along with dry fruits, my choice of dry fruits went for cranberries, raisins,chopped apricots chunks, few dates, prepared along with brown rice flour, almond powder,chocolate powder and all purpose flour for our evening snacks...Do you believe tat these cookies vanished quickly once i finished baking, with this given measurements i got 25 medium sized cookies and its definitely a guilt free snacks to enjoy anytime, obviously these cookies were really soft, moist and tastes delicious with those dry fruits chunks...


1+1/2cups Brown rice flour
1/2cup Almond powder
1/2cup All purpose flour
1cup Silken tofu
3/4cup Sugar
1tsp Baking powder
1/2tsp Baking soda
1/4cup Dark chocolate powder(70%cacao)
1/2cup Dry fruits (raisins,dates, apricots&cranberries)
2tbsp Canola oil

Preheat the oven to 350F and line a baking sheet over a baking tray...Grind the sugar as fine powder, add the silken tofu and oil to the powdered sugar and turn everything as a paste...take this paste in a bowl, meanwhile mix the brown rice flour, almond powder, all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, chocolate powder, dry fruits in an another bowl and add gradually the dry ingredients to the sugar-tofu paste, turn everything as a soft and slightly sticky dough with a wooden spatula, dont overmix..Take a small ball from the cookies dough and flatten them , arrange them over the lined baking sheet..before baking, just press the uncooked cookies with a fork and bake them in middle rack for 20-25minutes..

Let them cool and enjoy this guilt free chocolate cookies for snacks or for breakfast with a cup of milk...

  8. Priya, my friend...your choice of brown rice is really astounding...when I see all the yummies you are churning out with this ingredient, it makes me want to try it out too...have to look for brown rice flour in the Whole Foods store...

    Have you ever tried powdering your own brown rice flour? Just wondered, because I always have brown rice that I cook everyday.
