Cookies are my absolute favorite dessert. Even so, I’ve had my share of lackluster ones - bland, dry, hard as rocks. But these cookies, THESE are something special. With a soft cocoa cookie base, crispy crunchy oats, a slight hint of coconut, and the perfect amount of salt, these are cookies you’ll eat right up in no time.
this weekend we tried our hand at some vegan samoas. you know, like the girl scout cookie. moderately difficult to make, but totally worth it! the recipe we used is adapted from the wonderful vegan cookies invade your cookie jar. (if you have extra time on your hands, improve them by doing them this way.)
today’s october 1st, (well, it’s midnight october 2nd, we’re always late) you know what that means? it’s the vegan month of food! aka, vegan mofo. for the month of october, we’ll be doing some features of your least favorite foods, showing you how we make them into some tasty concoctions. hopefully it’ll inspire you to branch out and try experimenting with foods you’d normally not use.
let us know what your least favorite foods are at this post! (either through tumblr or through the comments.)
but getting to the actual post…!
one of the unpopular foods we tallied up is coconut. maybe it’s the texture, or the bold scent, i’m not sure, but i LOVE coconut. if you totally hate it, start out by adding coconut milk or shredded coconut into a sauce, like this amazing dum aloo we made a while back. pair it with some bold spices to temper the strong flavor while keeping a hint of coconut in the meal.
if you’re feeling into it, try these equally amazing coconut chocolate chip cookies! adapted from original recipe in la dolce vegan, which we highly suggest grabbing for yourself or checking it out from the library, it’s a great book!
