Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies
Peanut butter cookies remind me of my childhood. I am sucker for the old-fashioned ones like my grandma used to make. I love when they are crispy on the outside but chewy on the inside.
I have a couple different peanut butter recipes that I like. One is a flourless recipe that contains eggs and this one is a vegan version made without eggs!! It’s a healthier version with WAY less sugar and minimal flour so they are better for you than the ones grandma used to make.
They MELT in your mouth and are bursting with peanut butter flavour. These cookies are super easy to make and if you are anything like me, you may have a hard time not eating the whole batch in one sitting!!
1/2 cup peanut butter
3/4 tsp baking soda
3 tbsp flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp coconut sugar
2 tbsp applesauce
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Mix dry ingredients well and then add wet ingredients. If you want soft cookies, fridge the dough for at least an hour then roll dough into small balls. Bake in a preheated oven (350F) for 8 minutes. They’ll look underdone when you take them out, but that’s ok. Let them cool for at least 5 minutes before removing from tray.
To keep these cookies soft, store leftover cookies in a plastic container. This recipe will make about 12-16 cookies, depending on how big you roll them. For 16 cookies, they’ll have 65 calories per cookie.
