First, since I showed you the wedding present I “made” last weekend, I wanted to show you how I wrapped it up, because I think it’s pretty. I made a card to go inside the real card wishing them a good time on their Vegas honeymoon, and telling them to look inside the box because I’m afraid they’ll see that they’re wine glasses and not look inside and see the extra-specialness. I know, I’m overthinking it.
I wasn’t planning to go so cutesy with it, but once the glue stick was uncapped all restraint went out the door.
I bought too many oats a while back and have been meaning to use them, so I made these Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies from The Village Vegan. I haven’t shot the obligatory cookie tower photo yet, so here it is. I can’t decide whether I like the one with flash or without better. What do you think?
I made a couple adjustments/replacements to the recipe: I used half quinoa flour, half whole wheat pastry, subbed canola oil for the margarine, used mostly brown sugar only because I was almost out of white, and mashed half a banana for the egg. I can definitely taste the banana though, so if you’re not down for that use a flax egg or Ener-G or something. It’ll work either way. The cookies are good! Make them. I’ve heard the recipe from VCON is good too.
eta: These get omni approval, both from the former roommate who made fun of veganism almost every day we lived together (in a good-natured way), and the bf who said “oatmeal raisin isn’t my cookie of choice, but these are good”.
