SACRAMENTO VEGAN SOCIETY Message Board › Forks Over Knives Movie; Help with healthy cookies/brownies??
This message board is read-only.
If you are able to come to the July 1, friday, 8 pm show for Forks Over Knives Movie at Crest Theater,
please let me know if you can help with bringing healthy vegan oatmeal cookies or Easy Brownies (see Healthy recipes from Mary McDougall below) to hand out at 7:30 before the show.
This is a good way to show people that plant based foods are yummy.
RECIPES to use for THE SHOW:
This is a variation of the cookies that I have been making for years. These are easy to modify by adding some chopped nuts or vegan chocolate chips instead of the raisins (which also raises the fat content of the cookies). These are cake-like cookies, not too sweet, and probably the healthiest cookies around!
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 10-12 minutes
Servings: makes 32 cookies
1 ½ cups white whole wheat flour
2 cups rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup raisins
¼ cup warm water
2 teaspoons Egg Replacer
⅓ cup brown sugar
⅓ cup Wonderslim Fat Replacer
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the dry ingredients (through the raisins) in a large bowl. Mix well and set aside. Mix the Egg Replacer with the water and whisk until frothy. Set aside while combining remaining ingredients. Place bananas in a separate bowl and mash. Stir in the brown sugar, fat replacer and vanilla. Mix well, then stir in the Egg Replacer mixture. Pour over the dry ingredients and mix until well combined and moistened. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a dry non-stick baking sheet. Flatten slightly with a fork. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until slightly browned. Remove from oven and cool on wire racks before storing in an airtight container.
I found this hint on the internet a few weeks ago so of course I had to try it. Much to my surprise, these brownies turned out quite moist and delicious—and they don’t taste like pumpkin at all! Try them for yourself.
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
1 box Dr. Oetker Organics Chocolate Cake Mix
1 15 ounce can pure pumpkin
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Pour the mix into a bowl, stir in the pumpkin until very well combined. Pour into a 9 X 12 non-stick baking dish and bake until done, about 25 minutes (insert a toothpick into the center, if it comes out clean it is done).
Hint: We have also tried this with a box of Dr. Oetker Organics Brownie Mix and baked it in a square baking pan. It took longer to bake and the consistency was not as good as the ones make with the cake mix, although they still had a nice flavor.
