Peanut Butter Marvels

November 5, 2019

These chewy treats are quite decadent-tasting. No one will guess they’re actually healthy.

Makes about 2 dozen

Ingredient List:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted, unsweetened, chunky peanut butter
  • 8 tablespoons vegan butter substitute, softened
  • ¼ cup brown rice syrup
  • 5 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1½ cups whole wheat pastry or sprouted wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup unsweetened flaked coconut
  • 2/3 cup non-dairy, dark chocolate chips

Step By Step Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350F (175C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Whip peanut butter, vegan butter, syrup, coconut sugar, vanilla in a medium bowl until smooth and creamy. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, oats, and coconut into peanut butter mixture and mix into a soft dough. Fold in chocolate chips to incorporate them fully.

Drop rounded tablespoonfuls of dough onto prepared pans, pressing lightly and rounding, leaving a small space between cookies. Bake 14-15 minutes, or until cookies are light golden and tenderly firm. Transfer to wire racks, and cool completely.
