Healthy with Okara! Light and Fluffy Cheese Snacks

Healthy with Okara! Light and Fluffy Cheese Snacks

No oil, no flour, high in protein and calcium, healthy bite sized snacks. The slight sweetness and the cheese flavored fluffy texture are delicious!

Ingredients: 1 baking sheet full

Fresh okara
100 g
Cream cheese
100 g
Skim milk powder
2 tablespoons
Sugar (or artificial sweetener)
20 g
Grated cheese
50 g

Steps

1. Put all the ingredients except the grated cheese into a bowl, and mix together with a spoon or fork. Add the grated cheese and mix in.
2. Line a baking sheet with a parchment paper (silicone mat). Form the dough into balls, and put on the sheet. Bake for about 25 minutes in a 340°F/170°C oven and they're done!
3. I tried piping out the dough like the ones in this photo. They look very cute. In either case, the dough is not firm like cookie dough; it's very light!

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to make a cheesy version of my favorite okara cookies, and this is it. They came out light and fluffy more like choux pastry puffs than cookies, and were really delicious, so I wrote the recipe down and uploaded it before I forget it.
