  • 1 teaspoon egg replacement I used Scott's Flax Egg 2.0
  • 2/3 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon coconut milk powder you can omit that one but I love the taste of it
  • a few drops vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon beet juice
  • 5 tablespoons water


  • Pre-heat the oven to 400°F/200°C.
  • In a mixing bowl add in all the ingredients given above, but add the water spoon for spoon. Whip with a handmixer. Your batter shouldn't be too thick. You can check the consistency of the batter in the video below.
  • On a silicone baking mat put a teaspoon of the batter and spread it with a spoon in a circle. Place two circles on the mat and put it in the oven.
  • When the circles starten to brown on the sides, take them out. (The next steps have to happen quickly, because once the cookie get cold, you can form it anymore)
  • Scrap if off the mat, flip it, place a fortune sheet on it, pinch one side on the other and press the whole cookie over the side of a glass to bring it in a fortune cookie form. The cookie is still hot, so I covered my fingers with some band-aids and kitchen-safe plastic gloves.
  • Put the cookie in a muffin tray, so it stays in the form while it hardens.
  • Repeat for the rest :)


First I hated it making these, because the cookie was sooo hot and I was burning my fingers all the time, but once I've protected my fingers with band-aids it was so much fun and I kind of like got addicted to forming these. I'll definitely make them again!
