Vegan Green Pea Cookie

I baked this for Chinese New Year earlier this year, cos it is probably the easiest cookie to bake.  Completely forgotten about it until I bake off this recently to use up the green pea powder, and brought them to SC's house during the dumpling making day.  His sis asked for the recipe!


These green pea cookie is not only easy to make, they are guilt-free too - uses sunflower oil instead of butter not to mention the goodness of veggies.

Green Pea Cookie
Recipe from here but amended with some personal preference.

  • 260 gm green pea powder (avail at Sun Lik)
  • 120 gm icing sugar
  • 1/2  tsp salt
  • 340 gm plain flour
  • approx. 200 ml sunflower oil 
  1. Sift flour with the salt and sift in the icing sugar.  Add in the pea powder and mix all the ingredients thoroughly.  Add oil sparingly and slowly mix till the dough does not stick to the hands.  I didn't measure.  Just keep adding until the ingredient comes together. Too much oil will make the cookie too frail and break easily. 
  2. Let dough rest for about 15 mins., covered.
  3. Roll dough into small balls and arrange them on a parchment lined baking tray.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg C for 15 mins. 
  5. Cookie will be very delicate when just out of the oven and will crumble easily now. Allow cookies to cool on tray before removing them onto a wire rack  to cool completely.
  6. Store cookies in an air-tight cookie jar.

Note :Alternatively you can roll the dough to 1/4  inch thick, in between 2 plastic sheets and cut out with a cookie cutter.
