Back to School Treats Vegan Tofu Coconut Cookies, Raisin Cookies and Tofu Sticks

America’s leading tofu purveyor since 1983, House Foods Tofu, is making the transition of back-to-school simpler with their easy to make, healthy and delectable recipes. Revealing new school lunches, after school snacks and sweet treat recipes.

I have been treated to new cookie recipes from House Foods Tofu. Their Tofu Oatmeal Coconut Cookies and Tofu Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are made by combining House Foods Organic or Premium Tofu Soft with old fashion oats with either coconut flakes or raisins. For a quick finger friendly lunch, after school snack or family dinner, whip up House Foods Crispy Tofu Sticks. Simply coat House Foods Organic or Premium Tofu Extra Firm with a mixture of crushed cornflakes and spices. These Tofu Sticks look a great deal like the wings at my family’s favorite vegan restaurant, I can’t wait to get a kitchen and give them a try!  Let me know if you try these recipes and how they work.
