Thank you for clicking & reading my new post!
Today I am posting my special cookie recipe that I have manufactured to fit my diet choices and satisfaction.
I do not have a culinary degree or really much baking experience, but these are cookies that I serve that my friends & family have gone crazy for! I created this recipe all by myself after being inspired by a mostly vegan and low cholesterol diet.
The best part about this recipe is that the dough is 100% edible while raw. It even keeps for a couple of days in the refrigerator if treating yourself to cookie dough is your dessert fancy.
I hope you try these out and if you do…let me know!
First things first….
Separate the wets and the drys into two bowls (ingredients below)
½ cup canola oil
½ cup honey
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of water (add more or less depending on your desired level of wetness)
½ cup packed brown sugar
½ cup splenda
1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
1 cup oatmeal
1 ½ teaspoons baking power
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
then… mix the two together after all ingredients are distributed and…
½ cup peanut butter and 1 cups chocolate chips (vegan, semi sweet, etc.)
Cook at 375 degrees F for 10 minutes
Personal Notes: I usually use a fork, a spatula, or even my hands to mix this dough. This is mainly because I do not have a mixing bowl at school-haha. Depending on how much water you add, the dough will either be very dry and very rich in a honey consistency (which means the chocolate chips won’t stick) or it will be pretty soft. Either way, it ends up baking just fine with the measurements I provided.
If the chocolate chips don’t stick to the dough, I just pile them on top while they bake or kind of push them into the dough balls.
I hope you find ways to make this recipe even better than I have but here’s a good start! There are many modifications you can make to fit your needs.
If you aren’t an oatmeal fan, you can add an additional cup of flour instead. Same goes with the Splenda-just use 1 whole cup of brown sugar. Add nuts, candies, etc. Alongside the peanut butter, I sometimes add a mashed banana.
The best part about baking is finding ways to create a goodie that satisfies your sweet tooth. Make these your own 🙂
Happy baking 🙂
