Happy Birthday Tex!



Another May Birthday this past weekend. I attempted to make Vegan no-bake cookies, but because I used non-cooked oats, the cocoa mixture never was really absorbed and they remained kind of gooey. I did do a follow-up attempt on sunday during the basketball game party and they came out delicious! The peanut butter adds a lot, so try this recipe (using Quick oats!): 
Vegan Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies

2 tablespoons of E.B. or another butter substitute
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup sugar 
1/4 cup soy milk 
dash salt
1 tsp. pure vanilla
1 heaping tablespoon peanut butter (optional: add more to taste and increase the oatmeal) - I personally used soynut butter - but any nut butter will do.
1 1/2 cups UNCOOKED oatmeal

heat butter until the butter is melted. Add 1/4 cup cocoa and blend until the cocoa is dissolved into the butter.

Add the sugar, milk and salt. Blend well.

bring ingredients to a full boil. You want a full boil, but because it will continue to cook for awhile once it's removed from heat, heating it too long can cause the mixture to scorch.)

Add the vanilla, peanut butter and oatmeal. Stir well. Drop by tablespoon-full on waxed paper and allow to cool.

Makes 12 cookies.


Here's a couple more photos of D's birthday of dinner, and roller skating. The drinks afterwards didn't get documented:
