Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies
1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/4 Cup Ground Flax Seeds
1/2 Cup Quick Oats
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
2 Tablespoons Canola Oil
1 Tablespoon Unsweetened Applesauce
1/4 Cup Maple Syrup or honey
1/4 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Mix together dry ingredients first, then add applesauce, oil, vanilla, syrup and peanut butter.
Using a wooden spoon to mash together the mixture works best.
Drop by Tablespoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet about 1-2 inches apart.
Pat each cookie down with the back of a spoon.
Sprinkle with coarse sugar if you like.
Place into oven and bake 10 to 12 minutes or until bottoms are lightly golden.
After they are baked let them cool for at least 15 minutes. They will be soft out of the oven but
will become more crisp and chewy when they cool.
Tips: If using honey, cookies may stick to wax paper. To prevent this, either use maple syrup or bake cookies on metal non stick cookie sheet.
