As you may know already, both my wife Liv and I host a weekly gathering called Sunday Morning Coffee. We feature this heavily on our social media because of the overwhelming positive response we’ve been getting to the whole event! It started as a way to get together in small numbers safely, but since has grown into a large weekly gathering in which my wife or I feature new baked goods, coffee creations and fresh bread! Needless to say, these Vegan Hawaiian Black Salt Caramel Cookies were the first thing gone, and have been a highly requested treat ever since introducing them last week!

Let’s get to the recipe already!

BUT FIRST! Let me go over how they were made, and why these Vegan Hawaiian Black Salt Caramel Cookies are the exact cookie you’ve been missing in your life!

…. First the chocolate – Mylk chocolate is their vegan version of dairy-based chocolate without the dairy! The “mylk” comes from rice powder to create a wonderful creamy and smooth texture.

…. And the caramel – with extreme care and patience! They cook all the ingredients in a big copper kettle until they get the perfect golden colour, chewy texture, and amazing taste.

…. And what truly makes these chocolates unique – The Black Salt! – Using a traditional Hawaiian process, Hawaiian Black Salt is made by harvesting sea salt from the waters surrounding the Hawaiian islands and is then infused in activated coconut shell charcoal. This process gives it its wonderful colour and earthy flavour.

Now that you know all about these Vegan Black Salt Hawaiian Caramel Cookies, let’s get into the recipe so you can make them for yourself!

  4. Add dry mixture to wet in two parts, stirring to form a dough. Add chocolate chips and stir to combine.
  5. Use approx 5 tbsp of dough per cookie, placing a caramel inside and flattening the dough into a disc shape around the chocolate so there are no gaps or holes in the dough for the caramel to escape.
