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.

PRINTER FRIENDLY VERSION

Oven: 350 degrees

Bake Time: 7-8 minutes

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Serves: 4-8 servings (makes 1 dozen)

WHAT YOU’LL NEED…

  • 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.

DIRECTIONS…

  • 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.

~ The photo was taken by me and it shows the oatmeal peanut butter cookies, but also shows vegan chocolate chip cookies. The chocolate chip cookies were not homemade, so that’s why I am not sharing the recipe. Please tell me if you end up making this! Share your favorite dessert in the comments.

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!
