Vegan Meringue Cookies Recipe

Yes, these really are vegan. No eggs were hurt in the making of these cookies. And yes, they do taste as good as they look! 

I had to try it. I still cannot believe it worked. But, super simple, and so yummy, these Meringues were made from the liquid in a can of chickpeas! The liquid actually has a name and is called aquafaba. Yes, it’s a thing. I had an extra large can of chickpeas that I used to make a simple chickpea snack, and thought I should try making the cookies.

The amount of liquid I had was almost double what I put in this recipe, mostly because it made way too much. I don’t think most people would want 200 cookies. So I cut the recipe in half.

Anyways, the cookies turned out amazing. If you try it without knowing it is from chickpea liquid, you may think “hmm, they added something but not sure what, but still yum”. Once you know it’s chickpea liquid, you’ll go back for 2nds and 3rds oh and probably 4ths as well. Just to compare.

But seriously, these are so good. And the best part? The uncooked whipped meringue is so so so so so yummy and without the worry of salmonella. I’m all about the cookie dough in any form, and this is by far my favorite.

So, next time you open a can of chickpeas, reserve that liquid and make these amazing Vegan Meringue Cookies!

Enjoy!

Vegan Meringue Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup aquafaba (a.k.a. chickpea liquid)
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract

Directions

Step 1
Beat until stiff peaks form
In a mixer with whip attachment, add the aquafaba and vanilla. Start whipping the aquafaba mixture on high. As it starts to froth, slowly add the sugar, continuing to beat on high. Beat until stiff peaks form (should look just like egg white merinuge).
Step 2
Drop onto cookie sheet
Drop onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. I like to use a pastry bag/tip to make the cookies look prettier. But anyway will do. Give them a little space to spread.
Step 3
Bake at 225 for 45 minutes. Then rotate the pan and move pan to a different rack in the oven. Bake for another 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool before serving.
