It has been a while since I updated Five for a Fiver. This is because loads of shiz has happened to me in the meantime. I had a baby, we moved house (temporarily) and I have been cooking loads but, unfortunately, I was too busy to record the recipes (d’oh!)
So, I’m back! Back, with a recipe that is bound to tickle your tastebuds! I know I have a habit of waffling on this website, so I’m just going to get right to it. I mean, that’s what you’re here for, right? Not to hear me ramble about something that’s not related to food…
So, let’s get on with the show!

5-Ingredient Vegan Plum Chocolate Chip Cookies
These 5-ingredient vegan plum chocolate chip cookies are simple to make and cost less than a fiver! Perfect addition to kids’ lunchboxes whatever the age!
3 ripe plums
2 1/2 cups plain flour
1 cup butter
2 flax eggs
1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips – or as much or as less as you want
(optional) extra – liquid sweetener to taste – I used Teisseire’s Vanilla Gourmet drops
- Preheat oven to 350F/175F/Gas Mark 4
- Cream the butter and flour in an electric whisk (or just use ol’ fashioned elbow grease)
- Add the flax eggs and mix well
- Chop up the plums finely and add to the mixer – mix well
- Add the liquid sweetener in at this point if using
- Fold in the chocolate chips
- Line a baking tray with greased parchment paper
- Place a dollop of cookie mix with two spoons onto the baking tray, spacing each apart to allow for them to grow
- Bake for around 25 minutes or until golden brown
- Serve warm with your favourite beverage. I enjoyed mine with a cup of Oatly Barista M&S Tea! I love my teas
- The riper the plums are, the sweeter the cookies will be
- You can replace the fruit with anything juicy. If you go for dried fruit, make sure you account for that as a dry rather than wet ingredient. You may need to add more liquid to soften the dough
- If you want to handle the cookie dough with your hands, make sure you wet your hands.
- My cookie dough turned out stringy the first time I made these, which meant I over mixed them. Make sure you don’t over mix the dough!
