Wookiee cookies

I recently painstakingly watched Star Wars the Last Jedi. What should have been a 3 hour movie turned into the entire day. I watched a little got bored, had a nap, woke up, watched a little and repeated the process that by the end of the movie, I was lost with what day and time it was.

I know I should just have switched it off and carried on with life, but seeing as everyone has been raving about it, I thought I would give it a try… never again.

A while back,  I managed to get my hands on a Star Wars recipe book and seeing as I had spent the entire Sunday watching the movie, I really did think that I needed to start my Monday off with a Star Wars treat and that is exactly what I did for tea time.

I made a batch of Wookiee cookies. The original recipe was one that contained eggs, but of course, I substituted it for a vegan egg and hey presto it came out perfect.

So soft and chewy in the middle, so crunchie on the outside and sooo full of chocolate. What more could a girl ask for???

PS: The best way to enjoy these cookies, relaxing on the couch, watching My Kitchen Rules Australia and admiring Manu’s slick hair style… I am in heaven.
