We like being sneaky. Especially when “sneaky” means sneaking healthy ingredients into your eats without anyone realizing it. Which is why we’re sharing this inventive and healthy cookie recipe from House Foods Tofu. Their Tofu Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are made by combining soft tofu with old-fashioned oats and raisins. The tofu gives the cookies a soft texture and boosts protein (egg-free, too!) — without anyone even knowing it! So make these oatmeal raisin cookies the next time you have a hankering for a sweet treat. We promise we won’t tell anyone your healthy secret …
- ½ pkg House Foods Premium or Organic Tofu Soft
- 1 ½ cup all purpose flour
- 1 ½ cup old fashioned oats
- ¼ c brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- ⅓ cup vegetable oil
- ½ cup raisins
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- Add tofu, sugar, oil and vanilla to food processor and purée until smooth. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking powder, salt and raisins and combine with wet ingredients. Mix thoroughly and place in refrigerator for 1 hour to firm.
- Spoon approximately 2 tablespoons worth of dough onto greased baking sheet. Repeat for remaining cookie dough. Bake for approximately 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
