Serves 12


Cookie Base:

  • 1/3 cup vegan butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 sachet of BYS Performance or BYS Thermo
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups flour of choice 


  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1tbsp coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon


  • White chocolate


1. To make the dough, cream the vegan butter and coconut sugar together until smooth. Add the egg and vanilla and mix again. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until just combined.

2. To make the streusel, combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix with a spoon. The mixture should stick together but should still crumble when you rub it through your fingers.

3. Using a tablespoon, scoop a ball of dough onto a lined baking sheet. Using a spoon, make an indent on the top of the dough. Sprinkle the streusel evenly on the top of the cookies, into the indents.

4. Bake the cookies at 180 degrees celsius for 10-12 minutes or until golden. 

5. Once the cookies are finished baking, let cool completely.

6. Melt the white chocolate and drizzle over cookies. 

7. Enjoy!
