When you come across a way to combine your love of plants and vegan baked goods, you have to take full advantage: it’s very rare. And these monstera leaf cookies are the definition of the best of both worlds.
Remy Morimoto Park, the healthy plant-based food blogger behind Veggiekins, is always coming up with pastel-colored goodies (have you seen her rainbow plant-based mylks?) to drool over. Her most recent dessert—which combines her favorite plant and tea—might be her most eye-catching one yet: a batch of Matcha Monstera Cookies that are vegan, gluten-free, oil-free, refined sugar-free, and nut-free.
“These cookies come together in one bowl,” she writes. “The flavor is beautiful and mildly sweet, and the matcha makes the cookies the perfect subtle green.”
You only need six ingredients to create the Instagram-worthy cookies: oat flour, tahini, maple syrup, baking powder, vanilla, and a culinary-grade matcha powder, which will give you the boldest flavor…not to mention plenty of health-boosting antioxidants. And if you don’t have a monstera cookie mold, you’re in luck: this one is only $2 on Amazon. A plant and cookie-filled future awaits.
