Vegan Peanut butter cookies

One of my personal favourites! Crunchy, crumbly, yet soft and oh-so-yummy cookies that you can safely indulge in once in a while :) Simple to put together with readily available ingredients.

Ingredients :

  • Plain Peanut butter (either home made or store brought)         3/4th cup
  • All purpose flour                                                                      1/2 cup
  • whole wheat flour                                                                    1/2 cup
  • Corn flour                                                                                1/3 cup
  • Powdered sugar (or jaggery powder)                                      1 cup
  • Baking Powder                                                                        1 tsp
  • Coconut milk (or any nut milk you like)                                 1/2 cup
  • Warm water                                                                              
  • choco chips (optional)
  • Vanilla essence, a few drops

  • Take the peanut butter in a bowl. With a beater or hand blender, beat it nicely till it turns fluffy (around 4 to 5 minutes) Gradually keep adding sugar powder, little by little, in the middle of blending. 
  • Now add coconut milk, vanilla essence to this and mix nicely.
  • In another bowl take the cornflour, all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, and baking powder and mix nicely. Sift through a sieve one or two times.
  • Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients into it. Now fold everything together. Depending on the consistency of your peanut butter, this mixture will now be either to dry or too moist. If too dry, add a few tsps of warm water and mix. If too moist, add a few tsps of all purpose flour and fold it in. The cookie dough should now be like the dough we use for rotis or bread.
  • Throw in the choco chips and mix.
  • Now pre heat the oven and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Now make balls out of the dough and place it on the tray. Flatten it out using a fork. Leave little space between the cookies in the tray.
  • Now bake them for around 15 minutes. Check if done and flip the cookies over if you feel they are browning at the bottom.
  • Let it cool outside the oven for around 10 minutes, 
  • Enjoy with a cup of hot vegan coffee :)
