Chocolate Liquorice and Hazelnut Cookies with a hint of sea salt. Don’t tell anyone they are vegan as well, not that you would know it. I haven’t told my boys as it would have put them off trying them. They are Inspired by Johan Buelow’s liquorice shop I bought a jar of his sweet liquorice syrup. This is the second thing I’ve made with it, these are really yummy. The liquorice flavour is quite subtle but it really makes a delicious cookie. The first thing was these Chocolate Liquorice and Blackcurrant Cakes¬†are right up there with one of my favourite cakes ever, they really are that good.

To make the cookies vegan I have replaced the egg with 1 tablespoon of ground linseeds and 3 tablespoons of water. It is not normally possible to buy ground linseeds because they go off quickly once they are ground. I buy the whole seeds and grind them in a coffee grinder. If you aren’t that bothered with a fully vegan cookie and if this is too much hassle you can always use one medium egg instead.

I have used ground hazelnuts in this recipe, for a more subtle taste you could use ground almonds instead or to increase the flavour grind your own walnuts. I hope you like these cookies too.
