Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup natural creamy peanut butter
  • 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons flaxseed meal + 5 tablespoons of water)
  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup almond milk

Instructions

  1. Make the flax egg. Combine two tablespoons of flaxseed meal with five tablespoons of water and let it sit for 5 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, make the oat flour. You can skip this step if you use store-bought oat flour. Otherwise place the oats into a food processor or high speed blender and process until you have a fine flour.
  3. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir well.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and form 12 cookies out of the cookie dough using an ice cream scoop or a tablespoon.
  5. Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes. Mine took 10 minutes. Then let them cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes before you move them to a cooling rack. Don’t pick them up to early or they might stick to the parchment paper.

Recipe Notes

  • You can easily freeze these cookies. Make sure to first let them cool off completely. Freeze them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for about an hour. Then transfer them to a freezer bag and squeeze out as much air as possible.
  • Properly stored these peanut butter cookies keep fresh for about 2 weeks. Let them cool down completely and then store them in an airtight container at room temperature.
  • Adding a slice of bread helps the cookies to stay soft and fresh. The bread will soak up the moisture, so this is an easy trick to keep homemade cookies fresh.
  • I used maple syrup for my vegan peanut butter cookies, which is my favorite kind of sweetener. If you want you could use agave instead of the maple syrup.
  • I would, however, not recommend replacing it with brown sugar or coconut sugar as the moisture is needed for the consistency of the cookie dough.
