Melting Moments Recipe (No egg or dairy!)

May 29, 2016

For me Melting Moments are the ultimate comfort cookie. They're soft, vanilla flavoured and covered in oats- what's not to like? They're kind of a softer version of shortbread. Neither shortbread nor these cookies last long in my house! I've adapted this from a Be-Ro recipe book. It used lard, which is not only unhealthy but also rubbish if you're vegetarian like me, so I've swapped it for vegetable margarine instead. I've also exchanged the half an egg that was in the original recipe for coconut milk to make them vegan friendly too! You could also use soya, oat or almond milk as a substitute. As well as rolling in oats, you could try rolling in coconut flakes or add dried fruit into the mixture before baking if you'd prefer.


105g/4oz  margarine, 75g/3oz caster sugar, 150g/5oz self raising our, 30ml coconut milk, 1tsp vanilla essence, porridge oats. Glace cherries or nuts or sultanas to top.


Heat the oven to 180C, or 160C if fan-assisted. Grease two baking trays.
Cream together the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy, then beat in the milk and vanilla.
Add the flour and mix well.
Roll walnut size pieces in your hands, then coat with oats and place on a baking tray.
Flatten slightly and bake for 15 minutes.
