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)
1 Tbsp Ground Flax Seed
3 Tbsp Water
1 Cup Raw Sugar
1 Cup Organic No-salt added Peanut Butter
*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.
