Treat yourself to one of these Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. They’re soft and tender and filled with tons of chocolate goodness submerged in subtle notes of rich and buttery peanut butter.
So I had a major craving for a good chocolate chip cookie… Being fairly new at this whole vegan baking thing, I had to scour the Internet in search of ideas and inspiration, so I could whip me up a batch.
One thing I quickly came to realize is that “vegan” isn’t necessarily synonymous with “healthy”… There are TONS of really yummy looking vegan dessert recipes out there, but as soon as you start to read the ingredient list, they quickly loose their appeal! Indeed, a lot of them call for standard ingredients, such as vegan butter or margarine, granulated sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, etc.
Hmpft. While I understand that there is no real way to create a truly healthy chocolate chip cookie, I still wanted to indulge in a somewhat healthier treat. So I went ahead and crafted my own recipe. And while I’m still new at this, I think I managed to whip up a pretty decent batch of vegan cookies, seriously!
Those cookies are loaded with flavor, super soft, tender, slightly chewy, and all kinds of yummy! And while they do contain peanut butter, the peanut taste is very subtle and not at all overwhelming… it just contributes in making the cookies taste super rich and buttery.
One thing’s for sure: they totally, positively took care of my craving!
