Okara Cookies Recipe

 

It’s very simple to make your own soy milk. Soak soya beans overnight with water. Remove overnight water.

Put into blender the next day and blend with water. How much water depends on whether you like your soya bean milk thicker in taste or you prefer to add sugar. As for me, i prefer soya bean milk without added sugar and thicker taste by adding as little water as possible.

After blend, sieve out all the bubbles and use a muslin cheese cloth to squeeze out soya milk and pour into a pot to boil for 15 minutes. Stir and remove bubbles from soya milk after boiling.

This is Okara, the remains of soya bean milk pulp after you squeeze out using muslin cloth.

At first, i wanted to bring this Okara for my parents to use as compost for their mango tree. But i’ve forgotten to bring over, so i decided to make into Okara cookies. It’s my first attempt making these cookies. My dear said it taste good especially the “Okara Seaweed Coconut Cookies” but in my opinion, i don’t really like the taste. Try this recipe if you make your own Soya Bean Milk one day.
