Servings 24 cups
- 1 tbsp ground flax
- 2 tbsp water
- ½ cup vegan butter
- ½ cup plus 2 tbsp light brown sugar
- ¾ cup gluten free flour
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 ½ cups large flake oats
- 15 oz coconut milk refrigerated and cream removed
- 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp icing sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Shredded unsweetened coconut
- Holiday candies
Mix together the flax and water and sit in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Cream together the sugar and butter until fluffy. Add in the flax egg and vanilla, then stir in the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and large flake oats.
Press them into 24 silicon mini muffin tins and push a hole down the centre to make a “well”. Bake for 12-13 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven, and using the back of something small (like a candle), hollow out the hole to make a bigger “well”, leaving at least 3 mm of cookie around the sides and bottom. Allow to cool fully.
Meanwhile, whip the coconut cream from the top of a can of coconut milk, and add in the cocoa powder, vanilla and sugar. Transfer to a piping bag with a star tip.
Pipe the mouse into the cookie cups, top with a sprinkle or coconut and any other candies or décor you like. Enjoy.
