Ingredients:
Cookie base:

⅓ cup  vegan butter, softened
⅓  cup coconut sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
½ sachet of Beforeyouspeak Thermo Unsweetened Coffee
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups flour of choice

Streusel:
¼ cup flour
1tbsp coconut sugar
2 tbsp vegan butter
¼  tsp cinnamon

Drizzle
Sugar free white chocolate

Method:
1. To make the dough, combine the vegan butter and coconut sugar. Mix for a couple minutes until it is 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 their indents.

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

5. While they are baking, melt down the chocolate.
