Ok, enough with the diet friendly snacks right? Well, these cookies are not entirely bad for you… Like I said, you don’t want to deprive yourself of any of those foods you love right?! Let’s face it, if you are going to cheat… these cookies could be your perfect option. I adapted the recipe from my original chocolate chip peanut butter cookies to make them vegan. So between them being vegan and gluten free, these suckers are extra tempting
Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies (Gluten free and Vegan)
Makes about 2 dozen cookies
What you’ll need:
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 tbsp. cornstarch dissolved in 2 tbsp. water
1 tsp baking soda
½ cup extra dark chocolate chips
What you’ll do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients except chocolate chips. When blended, fold in the chocolate chips. Form 1 1/2 inch balls and flatten into a pancake shape and place on an un-greased cookie sheet. Bake for 9 minutes. Let the cookies sit on the cookies sheet for about 30 seconds to 1 minute before letting cool on a wire rack.
