Oat milk and Oat Pulp Cookies

From the kitchen comes exciting things:

Here is a homemade milk and a cookie recipe to make with the leftover pulp.

Homemade "Health food Quality" Oat milk

Oat Milk is so good for you and can be so expensive in the stores. Our Kroger just recently discontinued Hemp milk, Eric's favorite. We figure this is next. I prefer adding some vanilla to mine. Eric likes it plain. Here is a great vitamin packed drink that costs only pennies to make and is so good for you. The picture came out looking whiter than it was. The actual color is about the color of rolled oats
Prep time: 8 Hr 5 Min Serves: 5- 6 cups

1 c rolled oats (regular or quick cook)

6 c cold water

1 pinch salt

  Add all ingredients to a large bowl and soak overnight covered with a cloth. Use a blender to whip the milk out of the oats. Strain the milk through a fine sieve, or cheesecloth, into a bowl. Store in a clean glass jar in the fridge. Will keep for several days.

To make it vanilla  or sweetened oat milk simply add vanilla extract to taste. I use 2 teaspoons. To make it sweetened I took 1/4 cup sugar and just enough water to make it sort of liquid and microwaved it for 30 seconds then poured it in the oat milk

  Note: You can still use the leftover pulp ot make oatmeal or throw it in your bread dough. Or do as I did and make cookies.

Oat Pulp Cookies

The other day I made my first oat milk. It was delicious. But it left behind a 1/2 cup of pulp. The original recipe said to use in bread or oatmeal. I was making neither. But I make cookies every 2-3 days so I simply created a recipe to use it. I loved them they are light like angel wings and tasted amazing. Eric on the other hand likes seeds in his cookies so he wasn't as happy. So try them and let me know what you think. I am definitely making these again. maybe adding seeds to his half.
Cook time: 10 Min  Prep time: 10 Min  Serves: 28-30 cookies

1/2 c pulp from making oat milk (no liquid)
1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
1/2 c sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon, ground
1 tsp vanilla
1 lg egg
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 c flour
1/2 c white chocolate chips
1/3 c raisins

First you need to make the oat milk below and after strain9ing it you should have just about 1/2 cup pulp, to use in this recipe. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

 In a bowl add egg, sugar, oat pulp, cinnamon, butter, salt baking powder,and vanilla. mix well. Then add the flour, raisins, and white chocolate chips. Drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.

 The cookies are incredible with the oat milk
