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.
