Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies // Vegan

“Do you only eat salads?”. I laugh every time someone asks this. Eating vegan doesn’t have to be boring. I have proved this time and time again. Before making this recipe, I didn’t really eat cookies. That’s changed for sure. These cookies are easy to make, really tasty, and somewhat healthy.


Oven: 350 degrees

Bake Time: 7-8 minutes

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Serves: 4-8 servings (makes 1 dozen)


  • ½ cup chunky peanut butter.
  • ½ cup brown sugar.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup.  
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed.
  • 3 tablespoons water.
  • 1.5 cups rolled oats.
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda.


  • Mix together water and flax seed and set aside for at least 5 minutes. This makes a flax egg and will act as a binding agent. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  •  Stir together the dry ingredients. Mix the rolled oats, cinnamon, and baking soda in a medium sized bowl.
  • Next, mix together the brown sugar, vanilla extract, maple syrup, and peanut butter.
  • Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Mix until everything is well incorporated.
  • Form into balls. Place on parchment paper and gently press down on the cookie so that the cookie is slightly flat.
  • Place on middle rack and bake for 7 minutes. Cookies should be golden on the outside. If cookies are still mushy, place back in the oven and bake for 1-2 more minutes.

    This looks good! I think I could adapt this to my gluten free lifestyle and substitute the brown sugar for raw honey as a sweetener. No eggs. I plan to try sometime!
