Cool Whip!

Vanilla Soy Milk


#4. Share a recipe for something white.
Coconut Snowflake Cookies
from my trusty Whole Foods Cookbook

1 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 cup fine unsweetened coconut
3/4 cup oatmeal, coarsely ground in a blender
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup rice syrup
1/4 cup barley malt
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon orange extract

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Combine flour, coconut, ground oatmeal, soda and salt in a medium sized bowl.
Blend oil, rice syrup and barley malt together in a small bowl.
Add egg, vanilla and orange extract.
Combine liquid ingredients with flour mixture. Batter will be stiff.
Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto a lightly oiled cookie sheet.
Press cookies with a fork to about 1/2 inch thickness. Bake for 12–14 minutes or until bottoms are golden.
