Red Velvet Cookies

Sorry I’ve been absent from here for a while, I had exams going on! But as promised, here is one of my favourite recipes – red velvet cookies.

Red velvet was always one of my favourite flavours from when I was young. I’m not sure about you, but here in Singapore, most red velvet cakes are artificially coloured. In order to achieve that beautiful, deep red colour, I used beetroot powder (which is what is supposed to be in red velvet anyway – not any artificial nasties!), and a little bit of cacao powder for the flavour!

I’m so excited about this recipe – I just adore red velvet anything (I’m probably going to try and make a red velvet cake and cupcakes soon!). The cookies are soft and fudgy (they’re not the crispy kind – if that’s what you’re looking for!), and while they are an indulgence, they’re made of wholesome ingredients!

I really hope you enjoy this one!

Red Velvet Cookies

These soft and fudgey red velvet cookies are the ultimate indulgence! Red velvet -anything- is one of my all-time favourite indulgences. In this recipe, we’re using beet powder to get that distinctive red velvet colour and flavour – no artificial nasties!

Servings: 10 cookies


  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp beetroot powder
  • 1 tsp cacao powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 flax egg 1 tbsp flax meal + 3 tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup cashew butter
  • 1/3 cup coconut nectar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup chocolate, chopped I used a mix of dark chocolate and homemade white chocolate


  • Preheat oven to 175˚C. (I like to do this only when I’m moulding the red velvet cookies to save electricity!) Line a baking tray with baking paper (or you can use a silicone baking mat) and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients (except the chocolate!)
  • Add in the wet ingredients – the cashew butter, coconut nectar, vanilla extract, flax egg. Mix and incorporate well. 
  • Once the batter smooth, add in the chocolate and mix in well.
  • Take about 1 tablespoon of dough and form into cookies (I made mine into little hearts, but you can just do normal round cookies!)
  • Place the cookies on a lined tray. Bake for 12 minutes. 
  • When the cookies are warm, they’ll be soft, so let them cool and they will firm up.
