Ingredients

DRY:

  • 2 cups 260g Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2 tablespoons 30g of packed Whole Cane Sugar or Brown Sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 4 1/2 tablespoons 90g of Vegan Margarine (cold)

WET:

  • 1/2 cup 120ml Soy Milk or other Plant-based milk
  • 2 tablespoons of Lemon Juice
  • 1 Banana pureed
  • 1 tablespoon Pure Maple Syrup

OTHER:

  • 2.8 oz 80g Dark Chocolate (chopped or chocolate chips)
  • 2/3 cup of Walnuts

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F (190C). Line cookie sheet with baking paper and set aside.
  2. Toast walnuts in a saucepan. Be careful not to burn them! Chop into large chunks , let cool, mix with chocolate and set aside.
  3. Make vegan buttermilk by mixing soy milk with lemon juice. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  4. Mix together all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add small chunks of margarine to bowl. Use your hands to rub butter into flour mixture, until crumbs form.
  5. Mix "soy buttermilk", banana, maple syrup and add to flour mixture. Combine with a wooden spoon. Don't overdo it!
  6. Add chocolate-walnut mixture and place entire dough onto lightly floured counter top. Form a circle out of the dough about 8 Inches in diameter and slightly less than an inch thick. Cut the circle into 8 even slices (the way you would cut a pizza).
  7. Bake for 16-18 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

1)Dough should be slightly sticky but should be workable on floured surface. If it is sticking to counter top too much add a bit more flour.
