Probably also you from time to time have cravings for something sweet and home baked. In such moments even if you’re not the best cook in the world, you still are capable of baking something. Something like cookies. Or muffins. Or maybe even a cake. But it’s so boring to always bake the same things, right? I mean, everyone knows how to bake cookies! But not everyone knows how to bake easy vegan rye cookie sticks! If you wish to find out how, this recipe is the right one for you!
I’m sure that you know that too many sweets are not good for you. But sometimes the wish for something delicious is stronger than us. And in such moments it’s good to have healthy alternatives. I’d say that these easy vegan rye cookie sticks fall into this category. They contain rye flour instead of all-purpose wheat flour. They do not contain animal products and they are filled with high quality dark chocolate and nuts. For sure it’s not something that you’ll eat all day every day. But at the same time these easy vegan rye cookie sticks are a perfect snack also on the go! And not just that – because of their shape these rye cookie sticks are perfect to be dipped in melted dark chocolate… yumm! And by the way, if you like sweet things covered with chocolate, check out also my vegan chocolate-coconut cookies.
How easy it is to prepare vegan rye cookie sticks
Here’s my answer – super easy! You’ll need 7 ingredients and less than 30 minutes. The preparation process is as easy as 1, 2, 3! First, you need to mix together dry ingredients – rye flour, sugar, baking powder and chopped hazelnuts. Second, you need to add liquid ingredients – non-dairy milk and peanut butter. And third – mix in the chocolate! And there you go – the dough is ready! To create the cookie sticks, it’s better to use a pastry bag or anything that can be made into one and can come in contact with food. For example, if you don’t have a pastry bag, but you have food freezing bag made of harder plastic than the regular plastic bag, you can turn that into a pastry bag by cutting off one corner. Or if you don’t have any alternative to a pastry bag, simply use this recipe to bake rye cookies.
Easy vegan rye cookie sticks – delicious and healthy snack
Apart from the good flavor, another great thing of these rye cookie sticks is that they don’t crumble. Even when they’re out of the oven, they remain soft. They harden up a bit, but not enough to create a mess while you eat them. That’s why they are a perfect snack also outside the house. And the fact that they’re healthy makes everything even better! Rye flour raises your blood sugar slowly. That means that after small amount of time you won’t have sudden drop of energy. You’ll stay full longer and to get that feeling of satiety you’ll need just a few rye cookie sticks.
Whole grain rye flour is rich in dietary fiber and different minerals, like manganese, copper, zinc and magnesium. It contains protein and several amino acids that are crucial for our body. Also hazelnuts contain good amount of manganese. And on top of that also vitamin E. Dark vegan chocolate contains antioxidants that are necessary to keep our cells healthy. But you should always check not only if the chocolate chips that you plan to use are vegan, but also the concentration of cacao. The higher the percentage – the healthier the chocolate!
Our bunny Specky doesn’t eat any of the ingredients used in this recipe. Actually, he is the only raw vegan of our family. Not by choice, but simply because he’s a bunny! And bunnies should always eat their veggies raw. In this case to not make him feel somehow left out, I decided to create him some celery sticks as a snack. And trust me – my sweet bunny boy appreciated this gesture more than I expected!
Treat yourself with healthier snack alternative in between the meals and you’ll feel how your body becomes full of energy! Prepare these rye cookie sticks that are:
- easy to make
- perfect as on the go snack
- and simply yummy!
