While 99% of the meals I eat are vegan, the sweets I bake are only about 50% vegan because I find that non-vegan baked goods don’t bother my stomach as much as regular food. After looking through my past couple of posts, I realized I hadn’t posted a vegan recipe in a loooooong time. These are one of my favorite vegan cookies and I couldn’t believe I hadn’t written about them yet!

This recipe comes from one of my favorite vegan blogs, Peas and Thank you. Sarah has some really great easy recipes that even my meat loving husband enjoys eating.

These peanut butter cookie dough balls are quick, easy, and taste delicious. Even though they are baked, they still retain a doughy texture which makes them highly addictive.

Makes 12-18 cookies

  • Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy margarine
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, beat margarine, peanut butter, sugars and vanilla until well combined.

In a separate bowl, combine baking powder, baking soda, salt and flours.

Add the dry mixture to the peanut butter mixture a bit at a time, until dough forms.

Stir in the peanut butter and chocolate chips.

Chill dough for 30 minutes.

preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Scoop dough with onto a cookie dough sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. The cookies will still be soft and won’t spread that much. Be careful not to overbake or you will lose the doughy-ness! Let the cookies cook on the pan for one minute before transferring to a cooling rack.
