This recipe makes 24 cookies so it’s perfect to make and share with others! Or…. to sit and eat by yourself on your kitchen floor, at 2am! Just saying…
Life changing chocolate chip peanut butter cookies
1 3/4 – cups all purpose flour
1 – teaspoon baking soda
3/4 – teaspoon salt
1 3/4 teaspoon Ener-g Egg Replacer
2 – tablespoons water
1/4 – cup light brown sugar
1 – cup dark brown sugar
3/4 – cup natural peanut butter ( crunchy or smooth)
1/4 – cup non dairy butter
1/4 – cup canola
3 – tablespoons of non dairy milk
1 – tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 to 3/4 cup – chocolate chips ( minis work best I find)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C, or gas mark 5). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or use 2 non-stick cookie/baking sheets.
In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. Whip the egg replacer and water together in a blender or food processor, until thick and creamy.
In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar, peanut butter, butter, milk, and vanilla. Beat at medium speed with an electric hand mixer, ground peanuts, if using, and chocolate chips, if using, and mix until just blended.
Drop by rounded tablespoons 2 inches (5cm) apart onto the ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly in a criss-cross pattern with the tines of a fork.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until set and just beginning to brown. Do not overbake. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on the sheet for 3-5 minutes before removing to let cool on a wire rack.
So there you have it, the perfect peanut butter treat, just remember that I warned you about the 2am kitchen floor cookie binge…
