Soft little cookies that are really good and healthy, too! From Andrew Weil's Eating Well for Optimum Health in which he notes these cookies are high in Omega-3 fatty acids from the walnuts and have little saturated fat. I have changed the directions a bit from the original recipe.
- 3⁄4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 3⁄4 cup unbleached white flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt (optional)
- 1⁄2 cup walnuts, chopped
- 4 ounces silken tofu
- 1⁄2 cup light olive oil
- 1⁄2 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄4 cup maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon vanilla (yes, one tablespoon)
- Combine flours, baking powder, and salt with whisk.
- In another bowl, combine tofu, olive oil, brown sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla with an electric mixer until smooth.
- Add dry ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in walnuts.
- Drop by teasponfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for approximately 12-15 minutes until edges start to brown.
