Venice Surfer Brothers Sell Organic Vegan Cookies at Their "Stoop"
Brothers Kyle and Wesley Stuart have put their small porch to good use on Windward Avenue. The duo have been selling their trademark vegan organic cookies on “The Stoop” since December 25, 2015.
Having moved to Los Angeles from Michigan just a few years ago, the Stuart brothers have had experience with baked wholesome goods, as they helped their organic grain farmer father sell his treats at a local farmers’ market. With the use of their family’s red winter wheat, they began their cookie operation in California. According to LA Weekly:
“They bake cookies every night, surf every morning and sell their edible wares from early afternoon to late evenings, with business hours announced daily on their Instagram account.”
Seems like a very sweet deal! The flavors also sound absolutely mouth-watering, and include chocolate chip walnut, peanut butter, oatmeal maple raisin, and coconut cranberry, with the latter considered their “catalyst cookie”, since it was their father’s original recipe, veganized. Wesley elaborated more on how his dad’s ideas served as an inspiration for the brothers:
“Our dad was a bit of a maverick on the organic thing 30 years ago. Everyone in our town called him a health nut. Growing up, we ate this cookie [coconut cranberry] a lot but then scarfed Oreos at friends’ houses. We kind of rebelled, but now we’ve grown into our dad’s ideas and put our own twist on them.”
The cookies sell for $3 each or $5 for two, and you can stay updated on the “The Stoop” via the Instagram page, or make your way to Venice to use their cookies as fuel before a surf!
