The Easiest Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe Ever (and it’s vegan & gluten-free too!)

Posted by ebean

This is just about the easiest cookie recipe I have ever used.  The original inspiration is from the Country Life Vegetarian Cookbook.  I like to make my peanut butter cookies with chocolate or carob chips, gluten-free, and sugar/honey free…

Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Easy pleasy vegan gluten-free peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3/4 c.  Maple, Agave, Brown Rice Syrup, or Honey (I read somewhere that honey inhibits protein absorption in vegans.  It scarred me.)
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 3/4 tsp. Salt
  • 1 1/2 c. Peanut Butter (Organic or natural without partially hydrogenated oils!)
  • 1/4 c. Oil
  • 1 c.  Whole wheat flour (I used rice flour to make it gluten-free.)
  • 1 c.  Oat flour (Again, I went gluten-free and used a really good gluten-free pancake & waffle mix by Cherrybrook Kitchen.)
  • Optional chocolate or carob chipsGluten-free dreams

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350F.  Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.  Form dough balls with your hands that are a little smaller than a golf ball.  But really, you can make the cookies whatever size you want as these won’t spread.  Place balls of dough on an oiled cookie sheet or parchment paper.  Smash each ball with a fork.  Bake for about 15 minutes, more or less.  Yum!
