An easy recipe for vegan peanut butter cookies, that doesn’t require any special ingredients. I’ve been making cookies every day this week, but they disappear as fast as I make them. This is the third of four vegan cookie recipes.
These Peanut Butter Cookies are delicious. They are based upon the same simple recipe as the previous vegan Cocoa Sugar and Butter Pecan recipes. The peanut butter flavour is dry and salty so I used just Granulated Sugar and more Vanilla – to “cut” the dry flavour, and I used more flour to form the dough. If you are out of baking powder and baking soda, you can experiment with going without – the cookies will just be a little flatter and less cakey!
Vegan Peanut Butter Cookie Ingredients:
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
1.5 Cups All Purpose Flour
1/2 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1Tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Vegan Butter (I used Vegan Becel Margarine)
1 Cup Peanut Butter (I used non-name smooth)
1 Tbsp Vanilla
Additional Granulated Sugar for Rolling
Vegan Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe Preparation:
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F and line cookie sheet with parchment paper, or spray with non-stick spray.
Mix dry ingredients in mixing bowl. Soften margarine and mix with vanilla and peanut butter. Add to dry ingredients and blend.
Depending on the peanut butter brand that you use, there may be more or less oil in the cookie dough. When the cookie dough is fully blended it should have a consistency which can easily be rolled into spoon sized balls. If the dough is too crumbly, add a little bit more melted margarine or peanut butter – until the consistency is just right.
Form the dough into small balls, roll the balls in additional granulated sugar and flatten slightly on a prepared cookie sheet.
Cook in pre-heated 375 degree F oven until just browned. Let fully cool before removing from cookie sheet. These are heavenly!
