I’ve been meaning to make these cooking for a few weeks, but I had to think about the ingredients. They had to be vegan and gluten free. I got the idea on cooking cookies in a waffle maker a few weeks ago when I shared, on my Facebook page, a post showing the technique. I just thought it was a fun and quick way to make them without waiting for them to come out of the oven.
I just had to figure out a recipe that could give good results. Something I can suggest is not to use coconut oil. It sticks! :-) I also used a belgian waffle maker, so they were a bit thicker than if a used a regular one. That’s probably why they were tender in the inside.
