It’s back to school season, and we are trying to be super healthy! Treat your kids, their friends, the class, and/or the teachers to a new cookie recipe from House Foods Tofu. These Tofu Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are made by combining House Foods Organic or Premium Tofu Soft with old fashion oats and raisins. If you are not a fan of raisins, you can substitute coconut (just substitute equal amounts of coconut for the raisins). You can also add chocolate chips if you like (just stir in chocolate chips after the batter is combined). America’s leading tofu purveyor since 1983, House Foods Tofu is my favorite tofu choice. This recipe helps make the transition of back-to-school simpler and so much healthier. Enjoy these cookies for dessert, after school snacks or even for breakfast.
