The Appeal of Vegan Chocolate Biscoff ‘Digestives’:
These Vegan Chocolate Biscoff ‘Digestives’ are not your average store-bought biscuits. They have been carefully crafted to satisfy the sweet tooth while providing added nutrients and protein. By swapping out traditional ingredients for plant-based alternatives and utilizing natural sweeteners, these digestives offer a healthier option for those mindful of their dietary choices.
For the Biscuit Base:
- 1 cup almond flour (for a keto-friendly option, ensure it’s ultra-fine)
- 1/2 cup oat flour (gluten-free if necessary)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1/4 cup almond butter
- 1/4 cup erythritol or any granulated sweetener of choice (adjust according to taste)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- A pinch of salt
For the Biscoff Layer:
- 1/2 cup vegan Biscoff spread (ensure it’s gluten-free if necessary)
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
For the Chocolate Topping:
- 3/4 cup vegan dark chocolate chips
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- Preheat your oven to 175°C (350°F) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, whisk together almond flour, oat flour, baking soda, and a pinch of salt.
- In a separate bowl, combine the melted coconut oil, almond butter, erythritol, and vanilla extract until smooth.
- Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until a dough forms. If the mixture seems too crumbly, add a splash of almond milk.
- Take tablespoonfuls of the dough and roll into balls. Flatten each ball into a disc shape and place on the prepared baking tray. Use a fork to create a classic digestive pattern on top.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Allow the biscuits to cool completely on the tray—they will continue to harden as they cool.
- For the Biscoff layer, gently melt the Biscoff spread with coconut oil and stir until smooth. Spread a thin layer on each cooled biscuit and place them in the refrigerator to set.
- Melt the vegan dark chocolate chips with coconut oil, either in the microwave or using a double boiler. Once melted and smooth, spoon the chocolate over the Biscoff layer.
- Refrigerate the biscuits until the chocolate sets, about 30 minutes.
