Some Vegan Some Not
If I would of only known that I could make a fine batch of cookies without using eggs or even butter. Growing up as a young girl not having much food in the cupboards. I remember experimenting with baking cookies and deciding not to bake those cookies because I didn’t have enough eggs. Today, I find myself making more and more vegan foods such as bake goods. Now a days the grocery store has made it easier by having more vegan options making it a lot easier to become a vegan.
Sarah my daughter became a vegetarian about 15 years ago and then later on she became vegan. So it really has been an education for the entire family.
I believe it all started because of animal cruelty situations that she was exposed to through school and the internet. Sarah had the opportunity to go to zoo school. Yes, that’s right zoo school.
Today there is more than 600,000 vegans and the numbers are growing
Here again I put together this recipe for Sarah and my Granddaughter Avery that I’m sharing. This is one my favorite cookies.
The best Vegan Peanut
Preheat the oven to 350f
Add in a separate mixing bowl and blend with a hand mixer until creamed.
1 cup vegan butter, softened
1 ½ cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
4 tablespoons almond milk
2 teaspoon vanilla
½ tsp xanthin gum
Sift flour over the top of step 1 without mixing
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
Premix prior to adding to steps 1 and 2
1 ½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
Using a hand mixer blender only mix until mixture appears mixed (Do not over mix).
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or nonstick aluminum foil. Use a cookie scoop to form balls along with rolling them in your hands. Place the rolled cookies on the cookie sheet 1” apart. Use a fork to make those well known criss-cross marks. Place on the middle rack in your preheated oven.
Makes about 40/48 cookies.
Bake for 12 minutes
Serving size 1, calories 150
Wait to remove your hot cookies and let them cool a few minutes or so. This helps your cookies from breakage.
You can also add protein powder for more protein. Just alter your flour by reducing your flour by how much protein powder you’ve added. So if you’ve added a 1/4 c protein powder use a 1/4 cup less of flour.
Adult Edibles ~Add CBD or THC by using your infused vegan canna butter. Here again you are substituting 1/4 or 1/2 of vegan butter with infused vegan canna butter. Plus 2 tsp Sunflower lecithin.
Sunflower lecithin is an essential ingredient rather if you’re using THC or CBD’s it makes your cannabis break down faster in your liver and on to your blood stream it goes.
Here’s where your body will benefit from the cannabis as an antioxidant. Most everyone has a misconception about eating THC edibles versus eating CBD’s. THC gives your body a stronger sense of relaxation and a stronger relief from pain than CBD’s and it does not give you a head high.
Now, when over eaten (THC) cannabis is not your friend. Causes severe issues like vomiting and a faster heartthrob and a sense that you’re gonna not make it and could last for 24 hours.
The thing is that cannabis can also give people the reverse effect in stead of relieving your pain it can enhance the feeling of pain. So, really it’s inconsistent due to several factors.
Several factors of inconsistency in cannabis. All the different strains all by itself from indica to sativa and the differences in percentages. How it’s grown, cured and extracted. Person body mass and their ability to break down the THC when eaten.
I hope that this information will provide you some insight on edibles. Oh and don’t forget to clearly mark your edibles so that you know what your eating.
Optional~ By adding hemp oil you are adding more protein to your cookies as well.
For your convenience I had added a list of items that you maybe interested in, found on Amazon.
