Vegan nougat bars are the enemy of anyone who wants to stay away from chocolate, fat and calories. They are in the positive sense a devil’s stuff, because they really taste extremely good, but are just also very high in calories. I don’t mind, but I hear there are people who go on a diet before Christmas. I do not belong to this group, because here on this blog I want to present vegan recipes that taste. That’s not to say that healthy cookies can’t be delicious, but when I’m invited to my mother-in-law’s house for Christmas, I just can’t score with air-dried, unsweetened date-cinnamon cookies.
Vegan nougat bars
Vegan nougat sticks are quasi double-decker, which are glued together in the middle with nut nougat cream. The ends are then dipped in liquid chocolate and the sweet little treats are ready. The ingredient list is short and simple, flour (I use very fine spelt flour this time), ground hazelnuts, raw cane sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, cinnamon, bourbon vanilla, flaxseed one and margarine. I put all of this into my MagiMix (or other food processor of choice) and process it into a uniform, compact dough.
TIP: I always grind the flour for the flaxseed eggs myself from whole flaxseeds. You could also use ready-made linseed meal, but this has already been deprived of the valuable linseed oil. In turn, it contains valuable omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which are essential for our body. That’s why I always grind flaxseed myself and store the flour in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer.
Vegan nougat cookies with chocolate
For the filling I use nut nougat cream, because I do not have to melt it and it is easy to spread on the dough sticks. Otherwise, you could also melt vegan nougat and use it for the filling. The sticks get a special touch when you fill them with sour jam. Other than that, there is only one more thing we should discuss and that is the consistency of the dough. Depending on what kind of piping nozzle you use, you may need to make the batter runnier with some vegetable milk. Just try around a bit until you find the right variation for you.
