Vegan cookies - it's the properties that count

Eggs. Milk. Butter. Actually indispensable when it comes to dough, when it comes to cakes or biscuits. Actually. After all, you don't want to use animal products for vegan cookies - and you don't have to. There are even two alternatives. Either you choose a recipe whose dough does not include egg or milk, or you use vegan substitutes that have the same properties as animal products: you need ingredients that make the dough supple, serve as flavor carriers and help to achieve a browned crust form, also deliver liquid (milk). In order to save the eggs for vegan biscuits, you need a substitute product that binds fat and water like egg yolks, which coagulate like egg white, stick with the flour and make the dough firm. In fact, animal products are not absolutely necessary for this, vegan ingredients also have exactly these properties in order to make a dough for vegan Neapolitans, vegan vanilla croissants or chocolate chip cookies without butter.

If you want to replace the binding properties of eggs, you have three options for vegan cookies with, for example, oatmeal. Egg substitute powder - mostly made from lupine and corn starch - is the tasteless variant, while soy flour naturally tastes like soy, but you can save a whole egg with just half a tablespoon. Fruit puree made from bananas or apples is ideal for fruity vegan biscuits. Find out how to replace the driving force of eggs in your vegan cookies here.
