Cookie Recipe Milk

I made an oat/cashew milk as a base for smoothies. The extra went into the fridge. The next day, I made cookies using that milk. It was on the thick side, so drinking it as a milk would probably not be the best option. The cookies developed a nice crispiness to them, and the flavor was great. I didn’t measure while making those cookies - that recipe will be for another day.

The original recipe came from the Vita-Mix site and one other, I think. Check the Vegan Milk label for more posts on vegan milk, and those recipe links.

Equipment needed: Vita-Mix with the liquid container, 1 cup Measuring Cup

1 cup Gluten-Free Rolled Oats
6 cups Water
6 oz raw, unsalted Cashews
5 pitted Dates

Put it all in the blender and blend on the highest speed for 3 minutes. Store in the fridge. This will thicken up some after a few hours.

Because the Vita-Mix actually cooks the oats in that 3 minutes, a food processor or regular blender probably won’t do the trick. It may be as easy as blending it and then simmering it on the stove to get the oats cooked if you don’t have a Vita-Mix handy. I think one of the recipes I found online had a stovetop method. That link should be in an earlier vegan milk post.

If you want a thinner milk, that may require a nut milk bag to remove some of the nut pulp.
