Prep Time:      5 mins

Cook Time:     12 mins

Cooling Time: 10 mins

Total Time:      27 mins


  • 2 tbsp unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 tbsp neutral oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup Metta flour/atta
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt a pinch
  • 1/4 cup raw sugar

For Sugar-Cinnamon Mix

  • 2 tbsp raw sugar you can add up to 2.5 tbsp of sugar
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 deg Also line the baking tray with a parchment paper or aluminum foil. If using aluminum foil, add a tsp of oil and coat it evenly on the foil.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the wet ingredients – oil, unsweetened apple sauce, and vanilla essence. Using a hand whisk or even a spoon, mix it thoroughly.
  3. Now add the sugar. Combine the sugar into the wet ingredients.
  4. At the stage, add the Metta flour, salt, and baking powder. Gently combine the dry and wet ingredients.
  5. Now scoop about 1 tbsp of cookie dough and place it on the baking tray like below.
  6. Spread some oil on the backside of the cookie scooper like below. This prevents the cookie dough from sticking to the cookie scooper.
  7. Gently press the cookie, as shown below. The gluten-free flour doesn’t expand/spread, so we are pressing like this.
  8. Now, bake this for 12 minutes in the preheated oven at 350 deg F.
  9. After baking, let the cookies cool for 10 minutes.
  10. Meanwhile, take 3/4 tsp of cinnamon with 2 to 2.5 tbsps of raw sugar in a bowl. Mix them thoroughly.
  11. Now place the baked cookie in the cinnamon-sugar bowl and coat them with sugar mixture evenly. And that’s it. The vegan cookies are ready. Enjoy.


  • Coating the cookies with cinnamon sugar is entirely optional.
  • You can roll the scooped out cookie dough in the cinnamon-sugar mixture too. Or you can add some sprinkles.
  • I did not add any chocolate chips, nuts, or dry fruits. But you can add 1 tbsp of nuts or dry fruits or mini chocolate chips for this measure.
  • So far, I have tried this cookie with orange flavor and almond flavor. If you are planning to add cinnamon-sugar mix, I would recommend vanilla flavor then.
  • The measure that I used yields seven cookies, but you can double the ratio and bake up to 15 cookies.
