  • 200g (7 oz) brown sugar

Method

  1. Combine ground flaxseed and water in a small bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes to let the mixture thicken.
  2. Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F/ Gas 3. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper
  3. Add vegan butter, peanut butter, and brown sugar to a large bowl. Using a stand mixer or handheld electric mixer, cream ingredients together until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes). Add the flax egg and vanilla extract. Cream together until combined.
  4. Add all-purpose flour, rolled oats, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt to the bowl. Mix the ingredients together until the flour is evenly incorporated. Add the vegan M&M style candies and chocolate chips. Mix together
  5. Scoop cookie dough into 12 balls. Transfer cookie dough to the baking sheets
  6. Bake cookies for 15 minutes, or until the edges are light golden-brown and the centre is still gooey. Remove cookies from the oven while they appear slightly under baked. They will de-puff and firm up while cooling.
  7. Allow cookies to cool before devouring. Enjoy!
