I was craving some peanut butter cookies and since my hand was broken and I couldn’t work I went on a vegan recipe binge and cooked way too much food for a few days out of boredom. Thank god I didn’t have any warm weather spring break plans!
I googled some recipes, but I didn’t have much in the kitchen so I kinda just winged it and this is was I ended up creating:
1/4 cup vegan butter (earth balance is the best!)
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup splenda
1/2 flax egg
I didn’t have any baking soda or anything of that fancy shmancy stuff (it’s a college kitchen, y’all!) so I just worked with what I had! My roommates weren’t too happy with me as they were all preparing for spring break and peanut butter cookies were not on their diet! They did drunkenly finish them off one night though, so even non vegans approved!
I made a small batch (it made 6 decent sized cookies) because I didn’t want to over indulge and I’m always skeptical about my cooking experiments.
I had made these before and it gave me the idea: http://www.pauladeen.com/recipes/view2/magical_peanut_butter_cookies
These look like absolute perfection! I will definitely be making them once I get a chance to get to the store and get a few things! Also, the picture is from here. My iphone didn’t do mine much justice! http://kblog.lunchboxbunch.com/2013/01/vegan-peanut-butter-cookies-warm-chewy.html
