Soy, Not Oi!

July 31, 2008

This is a great little vegan zine that I’ve been neglecting. Here’s a link to Food Fight, which is where I bought mine awhile back.

I’ve made these cookies so many times, not only because they’re tasty, but because they’re the peanut-butter-iest cookies possible. While the PB Gigantoids from VWAV are good, and I make them all the time at work, there’s just more sugar in them than peanut butter, which doesn’t cut it when I have a craving. Since the Soy, Not Oi! ones are so chock full of peanut butter goodness, I bake mine for longer than the recipe says, otherwise they crumble to bits.

J@ck’s Highly Requested Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 2 cups peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup vegan margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons arrowroot
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • splash soy (never even if you are desperate oi) milk
  • 1 package chocolate chips (12 oz.)

Mix everything in a bowl except chips & soy (never evil oi) milk. Splash soy milk until the texture is somewhere between wet and dry. Add chips. Bake at 350*F for 8-10 minutes. This can be smelled from miles away, in fact last time I made these Walt Glazer and Martin Sprouse called simultaneously demanding their share!

**That’s the recipe as it’s written. When I make them, I use natural peanut butter (I never buy the hydrog. crap), only brown sugar (because I love the flavor), & white whole wheat flour (because it’s healthier). I’ve made these at work when we didn’t have arrowroot & everything worked out fine, so I know for a fact that it can be omitted. When I made these yesterday, I made 1/4 batch & got 18 cookies out of it, so a full batch makes a shitload.

P.S. Thanks to Sage for the fabric!

    Oh I’ve heard of this recipe before, and it does sound really good… That picture of with the giant melty chocolate chip does help reinforce that idea though! I’ll file it away for a rainy day. 😉
