While these are made exclusively in our healthy Manchester restaurant cafe, we believe in sharing the goodness! Without further ado, here's a little more about our Vegan, Dairy Free, Gluten Free Macadamia and Nutmeg Cookie Recipe.

Our Macadamia and Nutmeg Cookies are made with no refined sugars, gluten free, dairy free and are entirely plant-based. In a nutshell; a delicious snack to enjoy whenever you're feeling a sweet treat.

If you're trying to clean up your nutrition habits, following tasty recipes can help you implement new healthy choices. We'll tell you how to bake these delicious vegan and gluten free cookies here. A tasty yet healthy recipe, we'll help with balancing out your nutrition habits. These soft, chewy cookies are the perfect afternoon treat. Read on for our best vegan cookie recipe.


As with any Remedy recipe, we like to shake things up a little. We make our recipes from scratch, using only the finest ingredients we can source for our kitchen.

If you're hoping to take the 'health' aspect of your baking one step further, you can try making your own gluten free flour blend. This leads to an even cleaner result, as shop bought flour often includes bulking agents and stabilisers. We recommend that you make your own gluten free flour blend, if you want to try this recipe the Remedy way.

If you are buying flour from the store, we recommend Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free 1-1 Baking Flour for this recipe. You can get hold of this here from Holland and Barrett or local health food stores around the UK.


Feeling creative? Swap out the macadamia and nutmeg in these vegan cookies for other nuts and spices. The gluten free cookie recipe is ideal for trying our new flavour combinations.

Some of our favourite combinations so far are:

  • Cranberry & Blanched Almond Gluten Free Vegan Cookies
    (use 1/4 cup of each, chop almonds roughly)

  • Ginger & All Spice Gluten Free Vegan Cookies
    (add 3 tsp powdered ginger with 1/2 tsp all-spice)

  • 1.5 cups gluten free oats (we recommend Bobs Red Mill)
  • 1 cup plain gluten free flour blend
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 tsp pink rock salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar or unrefined muscovado sugar
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp coconut milk (we recommend Rude Health)
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil

Optional Flavouring

  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped macadamia nuts
  • 1 tsp powdered nutmeg


  1. Line two flat trays with baking parchment and preheat the oven to 170 degrees.

  2. Blitz coconut sugar with melted coconut oil in the food processor.

  3. Add coconut milk, vanilla extract, and maple syrup to the mix and blend for

    10 seconds.

  4. Add in the remaining dry ingredients and pulse until combined - use a spatula

    to scrape down the sides if needed. You should have a rough batter with a little

    texture from the oats.

  5. Transfer the mix into a bowl and stir in the dried fruit/nuts if using.

  6. Use a packed 1⁄4 cup measure of batter per cookie and tap it out onto the

    baking tray. Leave 2 cm between each cookie so they have space to expand.

  7. Use the back of the 1/4 cup measure to flatten the mix to approx 1cm in

    depth and ensure that the shape is perfectly round. All cookies should look

    even and consistent is size, depth and shape.

  8. Press in flaked almonds as a topping if applicable.

  9. Bake on 170 degrees and check after 12 minutes. Baking time is usually 12-15

    minutes depending on your oven.

  10. Leave to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack for a further

    60 minutes.
