The cookies themselves on display -
and the recipe!

Chocolate Raisin Cookies
Makes 18

¼ C Soft Tofu
¼ C Oil
½ C Brown Sugar
¼ C + 2 T Sugar
½ t Vanilla Extract
2 T Soymilk
1 ¼ C Plain Flour
¼ C Wholewheat Pastry Flour
½ t Baking Soda
½ t Salt
2 T Cocoa Powder
½ C Chocolate Chips
¼ C Raisins

Preheat oven to 350F and line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl whisk together the tofu, oil, sugars, vanilla and soymilk until very smooth and thick, with no visible bits of tofu.
Sift in the flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder then mix to incorporate.
Stir in the chocolate chips and raisins. Dough is pretty thick.
Scoop heaping Tablespoons of the dough, roll into balls and place on prepared trays. Flatten to about ½” with the bottom of a flat mug – spray mug and tablespoon with non stick spray if the dough is sticking.
Bake for 12 – 14 minutes then cool for 5 minutes on tray before moving to a cooling rack.

A grand way to use up leftover soft tofu! Enjoy!

Thanks for the recipe!! I'm really excited to spring these on my family and then tell them they're veganized. And that is one adorable picture :)
