Okara (or Tofu) Coconut Cookies

From Susan Voisin and Fatfree Vegan Kitchen.  “Okara (or Tofu) Coconut Cookies.” FatFree Vegan Kitchen. N.p., 26 Sept. 2008. Web. 02 Oct. 2012. <>.

These moist cookies tend to attract more moisture, so store them in an airtight container in layers separated by sheets of waxed paper.  Sprinkling them with sugar helps counteract some of the moisture.


1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes, packed (about 46g)

1 cup unbleached flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup sugar

2/3 cup okara (or 8 ounces firm tofu, blended in a food processor until almost creamy)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/8 teaspoon coconut extract (optional)

3-7 tablespoons water (I used 3 with okara, 6 with tofu)

1 tablespoon sugar (I used vanilla sugar)


Preheat oven to 375F. Process the coconut in a blender or food processor until it is coarsely ground.

Mix the coconut, flour, baking soda, salt, and 1/2 cup sugar in a mixing bowl. Add the okara (or drained tofu), vanilla, and coconut extract and begin to stir. Add water by the tablespoon until all the dry ingredients are incorporated and a heavy dough forms. Do not add too much water or over-stir.

Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to drop rounded tablespoons of dough at least two inches apart on a baking sheet lined with silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Flatten each cookie slightly with a fork. Bake for 10-16 minutes or until edges are golden and middles seem done. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before transferring each cookie to a wire rack. Sprinkle with sugar and allow to cool completely before serving.

Preparation time: 20 minute(s) | Cooking time: 15 minute(s)

Number of servings (yield): 15

    I needed to compose a similar (or it appears similar, based on the info given) study newspaper back in 2015 if I was a
    student. Gathering the required information was quite
    hard and challenging. But you managed to show the topic really accessible and understandable.
    Anyways, it was intriguing to refresh some things and discover out something new.
