Awww….This is the last day of Vegan Mofo III, and I hate to see it go!  Oh well.  If we have to put MoFo III to bed, let’s put it to bed with comfort food: soy milk and cookies. I’ve made this cookie recipe twice. The first time I made it, my husband and I wolfed these cookies down so fast, we didn’t have time to photograph them!  Oh well. The second time’s a charm.   You can find the recipe for this cookie right here, on Isa’s crazy, informative and entertaining vegan website, the  Post Punk Kitchen. Or you can pick up the book she co-wrote with Terry Hope Romero, Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, and get a head start on your holiday baking.

Thanks for visiting me during Vegan Mofo III.   I hope to be back and doing it even better for Vegan Mofo IV.  But until then, I’ll still be blogging regularly from my very, soulful kitchen.

Peace,

Faith

    Faith, I’m so glad I found your blog this mofo! And the cookies look especially delicious!

    • Same here, Mo. You’ve given out some great advice during MoFo. I look forward to keeping up with the goings on at mobettavegan, because you really have a unique and insightful perspective on things. Yours is a blog I can relate to.

  3. Delicious looking cookies! A perfect ending to VeganMoFo! :-)

  4. Those cookies look yummy. Love the photography, as usual. Glad to hear you made it through mofo. It seems as though most of us our taking a break now. I’m just randomly posting some mofo memories in raw cupcake form. I made a raw Sexy Sadie to show off later in the month, based on what ingredients I had on hand. The results weren’t what I had originally hoped for, but still tasty.

  5. These cookies look SO good! I have been meaning to make these, but your beautiful photo makes me want to run out and buy the ingredients today. :)

  6. These cookies look delicious! You know they are good when you eat ‘em all up before you can photograph them!

    Your friend, Lee, told me about your blog. I recently went vegan after 10 years of being vegetarian. These cookies look delicious, and I can’t wait to make a batch this week. Great recipes like yours will definitely make being vegan a snap! =-)

    Soy milk is great but i still prefer the old school cows milk since it contains more calcium. ,,:“

    • I hear ya, Jamel.

      You can find as much calcium in fortified plant-based “milk” style beverages, as you can in cow’s milk.
      Nutritional differences between soy- and cow’s milk

      http://goaskalice.columbia.edu/nutritional-differences-between-soy-and-cows-milk

      In general, I’m not big on trying to tell grown-ups what they should or should not do. It’s just not my style. My purpose in writing about vegan cooking is never to shame non-vegans or non-vegetarians. I like to provide what I consider a safe and supportive place to explore nutritional alternatives. My main goal is to help others find healthier and tasty alternatives to meat and dairy that they can LIVE WITH and TRULY ENJOY.

      But if you have any questions about why I PERSONALLY wouldn’t drink cow’s milk? Well…I just don’t think cow’s milk is great for human health, and I also don’t think “Milk is a natural.” The bodies of animals produce milk naturally only when it’s time to grow their infants into full-grown animals- and then their bodies naturally stop producing milk. In general, all animals stop drinking their mother’s milk when they reach maturity, and turn to other nutritional resources. I have to wonder why human beings have found it fit to 1) suckle across species. I’ve never seen a cow trying to access and human teat, LOL. And 2) I have to wonder why so many humans think it is appropriate to continue to drink any form of animal milk after they have been weened? I don’t think this is commonly found elsewhere in nature. Perhaps the practice has it’s benefits. (Maybe taller children? Maybe???) But I’m not sure the benefits outweigh the drawbacks. Still…I don’t want to argue with anyone about this.
