Honey, eggs, milk, and butter are more than just common baker’s ingredients – they are the pillars upon which desserts are often built. It may seem near impossible to imagine baking cookies without these, but with a little effort and creativity, it is a fairly simple task. It is also good to note how many cookie ingredients are already vegan in their own right and do not need to be replaced at all. These include sugar, flour, chocolate, vanilla, and other flavorings.

What You Need To Make Best Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

Baking Instructions For The Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. It is a good idea to mix the flax seed powder with the water in its own bowl so that it has time to thicken.
  • Mix the oil and sugar together, first. This does not take a lot of effort, so use only a mixing spoon. Gradually add the flour, along with the salt and baking powder. Add the flaxseed mixture, and then add the peanut butter. If the vegan peanut butter cookies mixture seems too crumbly, add some more oil in order to increase the moisture content.
  • The cookies can be shaped by hand or with the help of a tablespoon. Place the vegan cookies with peanut butter on a lightly greased cookie sheet; although the oil content of the butter should keep these cookies from sticking.
  • Place the cookies in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven, and place them on a cooling rack. Store them in an airtight container, or a cookie tin lined with wax paper when they have cooled.

Vegan Substitutes That Are Easy To Use

There are substitute vegan foods that are commonly used to replace the ‘pillar’ ingredients in baking vegan cookies. Other options are analogs which have been specifically created for†vegan cooking and baking.

Vegan Replacement For Honey In Vegan Cookies

Use sugar, date sugar, sweet-n-low, stevia, or other sugar substitutes. Also Agave syrup or reduced fruit juices.

Vegan Replacement For Eggless Cookies

Primarily used for their binding effect, eggs can be replaced with bananas (1 banana= 1egg), or 1/2 cup of apple sauce, soy yogurt, or ground flax seeds mixed with water. There is also a vegan product called Egg Replacer available at most health food stores.

Vegan Replacement For Milk

Many products are made by soaking nuts, beans, or grains in water and straining the milky residue. Options include soy milk, rice milk, oat milk; also almond, cashew, hazelnut, or other nut kinds of milk.

Vegan Replacement For Butter

One can use almost any variety of margarine, peanut butter, or the same amount of any oil. One benefit of these substitutions when baking vegan cookies is that many of them offer similar nutritional benefits to the original ingredients which they stand for.

Some Notes About Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

Do not serve these vegan peanut butter cookies to people with allergies to tree nuts of any kind. Do not use vegetable oil in this recipe, as the vegan cookies will end up tasting bitter. Do use chunky butter as it will add a nice texture to the cookies. The addition of chocolate chips will undoubtedly increase the popularity of this cookie. It is something to consider if there are leftover chocolate chips from a chocolate chip cookie batch. Some water is necessary though, in order to increase the binding capacity of the healthy vegan cookies mixture.

Finally, the amount of organic butter in this vegan cookies recipe will give the vegan cookies a well-balanced flavored in relation to the sugar content. More butter can be added if a stronger peanut taste is desired. All of the ingredients listed in this recipe are organic, but some substitutions for natural ingredients can be made. Olive oil is a good substitute for organic safflower oil. However, using organic butter is always a good idea.
