Schwarzmahler Chocolate Cookies – Coffee Chocolate Apple Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup spelt flour
  • 1 tablespoon cacoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup fine oats
  • 1 cup granulated brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flax seeds
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla bean sugar or extract
  • 1 + 1/2 tablespoon strong espresso
  • 2 teaspoons espresso powder
  • 1/4 cup soy yoghurt
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate drops
  • 3/4 cup dried apple rings, diced

How to

Melt coconut oil, set aside. Combine flour, oats, cacoa, baking powder, baking soda, brown sugar, vanillabean sugar, flax seeds and salt. Mix the melted coconut oil, espresso and soy yoghurt. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ones and mix them well untill it is a solid dough. Rest the dough for 30-60 minutes in the fridge. Preheat the oven to 160°C.

Make 20 dough balls, walnut sized. Prepare a baking sheet with baking paper and put 9 to 12 dough pieces on the baking sheet with enough space inbetween. Flatten the dough with your fingers or a tablespoon, till you double the diameter of the cookie dough balls. Bake them for 10-12 minutes on air circulation. Rest the hot cookies for 5 minutes on the backing sheet to cool down. Then lift them on a cooling rack.

I created this cookie recipe for a cooperation sale with Heiko form Schwarzmahler Kaffee (Schwarzmahler Coffee) at the New Noise Festival in Karlsruhe. Schwarzmahler coffee is my favorite coffee brand. The coffee is not only fair trade, but Heiko buys the coffee beans direct from Equatorean coffee farmers. He has 4 different roasts so far, which are all incredible. If you are a coffee lover give this coffee a try! My favorite roast is PechSchwarz (jet-black). You can find Schwarzmahler Kaffee also on Facebook.

Vegan Cartel, Canada

The Vegan Cartel

This time I’d like to introduce you to an awesome project "The Vegan Cartel" from my friends Tanner and Jeremy. Tanner (tourmanager) and Jeremy (guitar) from the Canadian Hardcore Band Comeback Kid recently launched the Vegan Cartel together with their friend Bailey (Grave Maker).

The Vegan Cartel it’s a nice blog where they post vegan recipes, travel experiences, stories about the life on the road and much more.

The Vegan Cartel have also a shop on there with a few T-Shirt designs promoting a plant based diet.

I like the “Diamond” HEART tank top the most obviously. A part of every online sale is donated as a contribution to the ongoing efforts to preserve the rights and integrity of animals.

Comeback Kid is one of the first bands I ever cooked for.

I even created my vegan RASPBERRY & ALMOND muffins (recipe can be found in my LaminEATs cookbook) for their show in Karlsruhe on the Never Say Die Tour in 2007.

Ever since we became friends, and I was fortunate enough to cook for them several more times. Whenever they came through the “city of justice”.
