Our dear friend John Cooper is one of the main men behind Cuchillo, one of our local favourites boasting many veggie/vegan menu options. Unbeknownst to us until recently, he is also a cookie connoisseur.

Lo and behold the Megatronic Power Cookie. All ingredients are the best available. Though you will notice “organic” isn’t included on every item, organic ingredients were used where available. Ensure the chocolate doesn’t include dairy, and these are both vegan and gluten-free.


2 1/2 cups oats

1 1/4 cups spelt flour

3/4 cup coarsely chopped almonds

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1 cup sunflower seeds

1/4 cup ground flax seeds

3/4 cup coconut palm sugar

2 tsp ground cinnamon

3/4 cup plant based vanilla protein powder

3/4 cup chopped dates

1 cup semi sweet dark chocolate chips


1/3 cup coconut oil (warm to liquify)

1 tbsp blackstrap molasses

1 tbsp vanilla extract

2 tbsp peanut butter

1 cup almond milk

3 tbsp water



Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper

Combine all dry ingredients except dates in a large bowl. Mix. Add dates. Mix.

Combine all wet ingredients in a bowl

Add wet to dry just until combined. Don’t overwork it.

Portion out and flatten with a fork. The flatter the crispier. Bake for about 20 min or until browned the way you like them.

  1. These look great. What’s the unit on the protein powder? ie “3/4 plant based vanilla protein powder”
