Easy Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

I got a bit of a sweet tooth late last night and decided to make some peanut butter cookies.  I used to work at a restaurant in Wilmington, NC that had a bakery in it and we made these really easy peanut butter cookies.  The only problem with their recipe was, they used egg.  So I changed up the recipe a little and used more healthy versions of the ingredients like raw sugar and organic un-salted peanut butter.  You can use whatever peanut butter you have on hand, but I feel like the un-salted PB balances out all the sugar 🙂

 

Easy Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

(Makes 1 dozen)

Ingredients:

1 Tbsp Ground Flax Seed

3 Tbsp Water

1 Cup Raw Sugar

1 Cup Organic No-salt added Peanut Butter

 

Directions:

*Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

*Stir flax and water together in a small bowl or cup and let sit about 5 minutes.

*Combine flax mixture and raw sugar together in a medium bowl.

*Mix in peanut butter.

*With hands, form into little balls about 2″.

*Place on lightly greased cookie sheet and press down with a fork. Turn fork and press across first fork imprint.

*Bake for 12-15 minutes depending on oven.

*Remove from oven and allow to cool completely on cookie sheet.

*The cookies will be very soft when they first come out, once they cool they will harden, so do not be alarmed and think they are not done.

    I don’t see any mention of flour in this recipe – is that correct???

    I made these yesterday after having a craving and randomly finding this recipe in my “vegan peanut butter cookies” search. I saw many recipes but they all required baking soda, and I was stuck in because of a severe snowstorm, and had no baking soda. I also had no ground flaxseed, so I substituted whole wheat flour (yes, gluten, I know! But I was desperate!) Well these came out fantastic!!! I will definitely make them again! I’ve already sent the link to this recipe to friends. Thank you very much!!!
