Quick and Easy Lemon Cookie Recipe, ready to eat in half an hour!!

I’m really playing catch up trying to post some of the things I’ve been cooking in the last couple of weeks and I’d completely forgotten about these lush little lemon cookies I whipped up last week when we got home!

Probably because I only made a small batch to begin with as I was trying out my “adding seeds to everything” approach and wasn’t sure how it would turn out (ie would I just burn the seeds.. which I have been known to do!) but they were scrumptious and Mr K loved them!

Quick and Easy Lemon Cookies

Makes 8 decent sized cookies



1 cup of all purpose flour (I’m going to use Whole-Meal next time but AP was all I had!)

3 tbsp raw cane sugar

½ cup vegan margarine

1 tsp baking powder

1 ½ tsp vanilla essence

The zest of 1 lemon

2 tbsp sunflower seeds (finely chopped)

Small bar of dark chocolate (just enough to drizzle over cookies, I used 8 small squares)



1. Pre heat oven to 175 Celcius

2. Cream the margarine and sugar together in a large bowl, add the vanilla and stir

3. Combine the flour, baking powder and lemon zest and add to the marg/sugar mix

4. Fold in the sunflower seeds

5. Roll the dough into 8 balls and press lightly to form cookie shape and place in an oven tray lined with baking parchment and bake for 15 – 20 minutes

6. Remove cookies from the oven when ready and allow to cool

7. Melt your chocolate in a bain-marie until smooth and runny and using a teaspoon drizzle the chocolate over the cookies (doesn’t matter if it’s messy, it’s arty!!)


Each cookie is approximately 150 calories

Newt time I try these, I’ll add in some sesame seeds and perhaps some raisins as well.
