Who doesn’t love a classic peanut butter cookie? They’re even better when you make them vegan.
Ingredients
  • 2 cups peanut butter at room temperature (smooth, crunchy, or a combo)
  • 1 cup flour (whole wheat pastry, spelt, or einkorn)
  • 1 cup natural granulated sugar
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350º F.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Work together with a pastry blender or the tines of a large fork until completely blended.
  4. Scoop the dough up by rounded tablespoons, or a bit more if you’d like larger cookies. Arrange on a parchment-lined baking sheet or two (or bake in batches).
  5. Flatten the dough lightly with your palm, then press down lightly with a regular-sized fork in two directions to make that cool criss-cross pattern that peanut butter cookies are known for.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the bottom of the cookies are golden brown.
  7. Allow to cool for a bit to firm up, then transfer to a plate or container. Store cookies covered at room temperature.
