Delicious Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

amazing-vegan_peanut-butter-cookiesToday, I baked a fresh batch of vegan peanut butter cookies for a dear friend of mine, who is going through a difficult time in her life at the moment. I know that these cookies won’t relieve her pain, but I still hope that they will make her smile. These chewy and delicious peanut butter cookies are one of my friend’s favorites and I hope that you will like them just as much as she does. Enjoy! 🙂

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (200g) sugar + ¼ cup (50g) for rolling
  • ½ cup (112g) vegan butter or margarine
  • 1 cup (250g) crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1.5 cups (190g) spelt flour
  • 1-3 Tbsp dairy-free milk (if needed)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 190 °C.
  2. Add sugar and butter to a large mixing bowl and mix them together until creamy.
  3. Add peanut butter and vanilla extract and then mix until well-combined.
  4. In a medium-sized, whisk together salt, baking soda, baking powder and flour.
  5. Add dry mixture to wet mixture and then mix until all ingredients are well-incorporated.
  6. Check cookie dough consistency by rolling some of it into a ball. If it holds together, you can move on to step 7; however, if it crumbles, add 1-3 Tbsp of non-dairy milk.
  7. Roll dough into balls, and then roll them in some sugar.
  8. Place sugar-coated dough balls onto a parchment-lined baking tray.
  9. Flatten dough balls with a spatula or by hand.
  10. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  11. Allow cookies to cool for roughly 5 minutes on the baking sheet and then transfer your masterpieces to a cooling rack for another 10+ minutes.
  12. Enjoy!
