Cookies have been a staple of tasty food since their existence. The first usage of the word “cookie” dates back to the mid-1700s, although the devouring of flour-based, disc-shaped treats and sweets have probably existed as long as people have been baking food. And with good reason, as pretty much every soul out there loves a good cookie. Whether it’s ginger snaps or oatmeal raisin or snickerdoodles, or the classic chocolate chip cookie, the love for cookies has led to a variety of ways to enjoy your favorite sweet snack.
This is especially true for folks with dietary restrictions, as the average cookie or cookie mix generally has a number of problematic ingredients for those on vegan diets, gluten-free diets, nut-free diets, and soy-free diets. It can be hard to enjoy the delicious sweet goodness of your favorite cookie flavor when a majority of the cookie mixes out there have all the wrong ingredients for your needs. That’s where Coconut Whisk comes in. Coconut Whisk is proud to offer a number of quality vegan cookie mixes (which are also gluten-free, nut-free, and soy-free) that taste absolutely delicious while using quality ingredients. Keep reading to learn why our vegan cookie mixes are so good, and how you can enjoy these incredible cookies from Coconut Whisk right in your own home!
Our Vegan Cookie Mix “Secret”
While we could never give out the secret formula to our incredible vegan cookie mixes, we can definitely provide some insight on what makes our vegan cookies taste so good; our high-quality ingredients that cater to a variety of dietary needs. Check out the three most important ones below, and how those are combined into a delicious vegan cookie mix!
Organic Coconut Sugar
One of the main ingredients in most of our vegan mixes, organic coconut sugar is a superfood ingredient that is a critical factor in the delicious sweetness of our vegan cookie mixes, as well as a critical factor in our namesake, Coconut Whisk. In addition to providing a light and tasty sweetness to your cookie, our non-GMO, unrefined organic coconut sugar has a low glycemic index, as well as containing a variety of minerals and vitamins, like iron and zinc. Coconut sugar also contains phytonutrients and inulin, ingredients that can reduce cholesterol and blood sugar, as well as boosting your immune system. One of our staple ingredients, organic coconut sugar provides a healthy and body-boosting characteristic to our vegan cookie mixes, without sacrificing any of that delicious sweetness.
In addition to catering to a vegan diet, our vegan cookie mixes are also gluten-free because one of the other main ingredients we use is chickpea flour. Chickpeas are a type of legume that has an abundant amount of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals, in addition to being naturally gluten-free, so they are a healthy and gluten-free alternative that is a perfect ingredient for our vegan cookie mixes. Chickpeas are also a fantastic source of protein and dietary fiber, as well as calcium, magnesium, and potassium. As a staple in most of our vegan recipes, chickpea flour is not only healthy and a good supply of natural body nutrients, but it leads to chewy and delicious vegan cookies.
Brown Rice Flour
In addition to using chickpea flour as a gluten-free flour substitute, our vegan cookie mixes also utilize brown rice flour as well. Like our other ingredients, brown rice flour provides a solid flour base in combination with the chickpea flour, without the potentially harmful inclusion of gluten. Brown rice flour also provides a great supply of minerals, fiber, vitamins, and phytochemicals, and has an extremely limited impact on blood sugar levels. Brown rice flour also has another critical role in our cookies; it’s complementary effects with chickpea flour. Chickpea flour alone doesn’t actually make up a complete protein, but when you combine it with brown rice flour, you get the full protein integration and the health effects that come with it. Good thing we use chickpea flour and brown rice flour in all of our vegan baking mixes!
