As a college student, currently really hungry with nothing to eat, I understand how hard it can be to get food. Sometimes you really just don’t have the money to eat and when you do, you waste it all on fast food instead of stocking up on cheap things because you’re so tired of Ramen Noodes and canned food you could barf. So, I’ve composed a list of recipes and resources that will fit a college kid’s budget and appetite. Don’t go hungry! <3
-inspiration from “Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar”
makes 2 1/2 dozen cookies, roughly.
In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the following:
2 cups of flour (non-bleach white)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the following:
2/3 cups canola oil
1/3 cup of vanilla soy milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2/3 cup regular sugar
1 tsp ground flax seed
After you are done beating the ingredients add flour mixture into wet ingredients. Mix until just combined (If you over-mix your cookie dough, it will be dry and it will suck).
Mix in 1 1/3 cups of chopped unsalted macadamia nuts, 1/2 a cup of finely chopped candied ginger, and 1/4 (ish) cup of unsweetened coconut flakes. The dough is going to be thick/sticky, but we added in a few extra splashes of soymilk to make it less dry.
Spoon out the cookie dough (we used a cookie dough scoop, best invention ever) onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Leave around 2 inches in between the cookies because they will spread. Bake them for 14 - 15 minutes in a 350 degree oven and then transfer to a cooling rack.
