Easy Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

Who doesn’t love a classic peanut butter cookie? It’s even better when you make them vegan. The original recipe contains egg and lots of sugar, but those are easy swaps to make. First, replace the egg with applesauce, which in turn gives the cookie the extra sweetness needed to cut the sugar in half.

We’ve been enjoying using einkorn flour for baking — it makes baked goods really tender and naturally lower in gluten, but these cookies are great made with spelt or whole wheat pastry flour. Make sure your peanut butter isn’t too dense so it’s easy to blend with the other ingredients. This Makes about 30 cookies. Cut the recipe in half for a smaller batch. Photos by Evan Atlas. more→

Dark Chocolate Almond Coconut Bites

Coconut bites from the Minimalist Baker

These bites are one of my favorite desserts yet! Consider these my lazy-girl’s take on classic Almond Joys. The base is a naturally-sweetened, no-bake coconut cookie dunked in dark chocolate and topped with a roasted almond and more chocolate.
