These vegan cookies are soft, chewy and just a little bit fancy with the delicious flavour of Turkish delight. I swear they taste just as good as butter filled and sugar-loaded biscuits and will keep your vegan and egg-free friends very happy.
If you haven?t experimented with Loving Earth?s wonderful flavours of vegan chocolate, you are missing out. In these biscuits, we have used Dirty Rose bars instead of regular chocolate chips. Seriously, so delicious! Also, nutritionally far superior to regular chocolate!
Whether you are vegan or not, give these delicious biscuits a go. Also, try experimenting with other flavours of Loving Earth just swap out the rose water for vanilla essence, mint extract or orange extract, depending on what flavour chocolate you choose!
