Soy Vanilla Slices!

Vanilla slices take me back to being a kid on holidays with my family up at Port Elliot, a beach town a few hours outside of Adelaide. They remind me of long days at the beach, camping by the water and the daily visit to the famous bakery in Port Elliot, where of course I’d get a vanilla slice! I found this recipe for soy vanilla slice at – http://www.ivu.org/recipes/desserts/soy-j.html.

They turned out really well, If you like them as much as me, then you should check out that website and give them a try!

Preheat oven to 170 degrees celsius. Combine all dry ingredients. then add margarine, peanut butter and molasses.  Add choc chips. Mix into a dough.
