Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

Hey everyone. How are you guys doing? Well, I'm stressed out, thank you for asking. I have a 12 page government paper due soon, and it's taking forever for me to finish it.
Anyways, I decided to bake some peanut butter cookie. I wanted to eat some cookies. It's called emotional eating. Eating when you're stressed. I even decided to add some chocolate chips to the batter since I love chocolate. I decided to make a vegan version because I received a recipe email by Chocolate Covered Katie about these peanut butter cookies. I adapted it just a bit to fit my tastes. For example, adding a bit more flour and adding chocolate chips. The cookie dough by itself tastes good and it tastes just as good when it's baked. You can't tell that they're vegan and healthy. They're around 50 to 90 calories, depending on how many cookies you make with it. So, here's the recipe.

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter ( I used Smart Balance Rich Creamy Roast kind)
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda (or baking powder)
  • 4 tablespoon whole-wheat pastry flour (or white or a gluten free mix)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon applesauce
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • dark chocolate chips (or any kind)
Mix dry ingredients very well. Then add wet and form them into 15-22 cookie balls (mines made 17). Then bake in a preheated oven (350F) for 9 minutes. They’ll look underdone when you take them out. Don't touch the cookies. Let cool for at least 5 minutes before removing from tray. If you don't wait long eough, the cookies will break. Enjoy. :)
