Last week, I finally got around to making the chocolate peanut butter shells from the Damn Tasty Vegan. You can find the recipe here (scroll down). Even though everyone has raved about these cookies, I had held off because I (freakishly) don't love the chocolate peanut butter combination! Crazy, I know. I made these to send to a friend. But once I tasted one, I realized I'd been missing out- these cookies are awesome! I'm wondering what other flavor combinations are possible- chocolate hazelnut? Cinnamon cashew? Vanilla marzipan? The possibilities are endless!
These corn muffins were a happy accident last week. Daiku and I wanted to make cornbread to go with dinner one night, but realized that we were out of everything- no soymilk, almost no flour. Well, what to do? We came up with this recipe. Considering they were made from scraps of what we had, they had a very satisfying flavor. The vanilla soy yogurt gives them a sweet flavor even though we decreased the sugar, so proceed with caution!
Sweet Surprise Corn Muffins (makes 10)
- 1 cup cornmeal
- 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup oat flour

- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- handful of corn kernels
- 2 TB brown sugar
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- up to 1/2 cup additional water, as needed
