Blisstree’s Christmas Cookie Exchange is up and running, and today we’ve got another great recipe from the blog love food eat. Her recipe for vegan peanut butter cookies is easy and totally vegan, but carnivorous guests will like them, too. Enjoy!

Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies From love food eat
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup icing sugar (reduce if you don’t want your cookies too sweet)
½ cup corn flour
¾ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ cup olive oil
½ cup peanut butter (vegan and creamy)
2 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp water (optional)
- Combine all the dry ingredients and mix well. In a separate bowl combine oil, peanut butter and vanilla and stir everything together. Add the wet to the dry ingredients and mix. The mixture will be quite hard. Use your hand to make hard dough. Try not to use extra water but if it’s not coming together add 1 or 2 tbsp of water. Cover and keep aside for 5-10 minutes.
- Pre-heat the oven at 180 degree C.
- Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Take the hard cookie dough and make small cookies with your hands. Place them on the try with a little gap in between. Bake them for not more than 10 minutes. As soon as the cracks begin to appear take them out of the oven. Cookies will look too soft and brittle but let them cool completely. They will harden as they cool down. If you over bake them the base will brown too much and cookies will not melt it your mouth.
