Fancypants Baking Co. is introducing three kinds of cookies made with upcycled food ingredients to reduce food waste and they put a more sustainable spin on classic cookie flavors. The new line of cookies created to reduce food waste includes okara chocolate chip cookies, double chocolate cookies made with coffee cherries and vanilla oat cookies made with oat milk pulp. According to the Upcycled Food Association, all of these ingredients would have gone to waste if not given new life in these applications.
While okara flour is a by-product of soy milk production, coffee cherry comes from the process of harvesting coffee beans. There's also oat milk pulp, which comes from the process of making oat milk, and by working with these ingredients, Fancypants Baking Co. is doing what many commercial bakeries aren't yet familiar with.
