Would love to see some photos of your attempts.
I’m growing to like them. They’re more like shortbread/biscuit than cookies, but I’m OK with that.
Here’s the bog standard 1.0 version:
Then I upgraded them to v1.1 with some icing (icing sugar and water with a drop of strawberry flavouring):
Looking pretty damn good.
I might try the Huel biscuits recipe from the ‘How to’ page with the unsweetened-and-unflavoured version. If I do, I’ll let you know how it went!
Here is another idea - Huel bread. One of our users made.
Did Kirsty mention the recipe? I’d love to try that. That is THE Kirsty Hawkshaw, right? Getting all nostalgic here. Obviously this weird kitchen experience in the 1990’s led to her wanting something simpler to wash-up! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNwNNw0u97Y
@HarryTuttle yes it does look like its THE Kirsty. Her twitter page links to: https://www.facebook.com/kirstyhawkshawofficial/info/?tab=page_info
A rather impressive list of of collaborations.
What recipie did you use for your cookies?
Thanks! I used the “Huel Biscuits” recipe from the Huel page, but instead of 2 tsp of vanilla flavouring, I used 1 tsp of sugar-free–and artificial sugar-free–coffee flavouring (Hazelnut or caramel nut) that needed using up.
These look good. How many cookies would equal a meal? Can you eat them as a meal instead of drinking huel?
Absolutely delicious cookies, dusted with dark chocolate. <3
I have a cookie for my breakfast with a coffee, Huel shake for lunch (with added banana) and homemade soup for dinner.
Tried some Huel baking again today. Altered a bog standard muffin recipe to use Huel instead of plain flour. It was a semi-success. The output was edible, so that was good but the muffins didn’t rise much. So they’re more like Huel cup cakes than muffins. Not sure if it was down to not enough baking powder, or just Huel acting differently from plain flour.
EDIT: In hindsight, I think my dough was too thick and sticky. Maybe it needed more milk?
Anyway, my recipe was:
120ml full fat milk
4 tablespoons of vegetable oil
200g of Huel
50g of sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
Mix the wet stuff, mix the dry stuff. Mix them both together and put in cases. Bake for about 20min at 200’C
Huel is quite a heavy flour I believe, so unless I’ve used baking powder and stuff it hasn’t risen much! It’s worth playing around with it to find out what’s best.
Yeah. Definitely. I’m going to try more milk in them next time. I think my dough was a bit too thick.
Here is my variation on the Huel Cookies recipe:
•150g Huel (100g vanilla / 50g Unflavoured/Unsweetened)
•50g brown sugar
•1tsp baking powder
•1tsp Huel Chocolate Flavour System
•1tsp cocoa powder
•75ml almond milk
Note the extra calories from the added ingredients. If you want to remain vegan, substitute the butter with a vegetable-based alternative. I also used wheat flour when rolling out the dough (contains gluten).
Mix the dry ingredients in a blender then slowly add the almond milk until it forms a smooth ball. I refrigerated the dough before rolling out.
The only cookie cutter I have is shaped like a duck. I also forgot to add the baking powder so I chopped the dough into rough cubes before returning to the blender and sprinkling the baking powder over it. A quick blend and back in the fridge for the second attempt.
The finished article, baked at 180°c. I must confess I didn’t time them; as a former chef I just check every so often until they look “done” but I suppose about 15-20 minutes in a fan-assisted oven.
