Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

This recipe is one of my favourites and is slightly adapted from the one in Colleen Patrick-Goudreau's cookbook, The Joy of Vegan Baking. If you don't already have a copy, you should feel ashamed and quickly walk down to the bookshop and get one (or, more likely, click around to find the best price online). This book is fabulous, and so are these cookies.

1 3/4 cup plain flour
3/4 tsp bi-carb soda
3/4 tsp salt
Egg replacer made up to the equivalent of 1 egg (I use Ogran brand)
2 tbsp water
1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup Nuttelex
3 tbsp soy milk
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup crushed peanuts

1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C and line baking trays with baking paper. Trust me on the baking paper.

2. In a small bowl, combine flour, bi-carb, and salt.

3. Next, in a large bowl, combine brown sugar, peanut butter, soy milk, and vanilla extract using an electric hand mixer. Beat until well blended.

4. Add the egg replacer to the peanut butter mixture and beat until just combined. Next, add the flour mixture and peanuts and mix until just blended.

5. Drop rounded tablespoonfuls 5cm apart on the baking trays, and flatten slightly with a fork.

6. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until set and just beginning to brown. Leave to cool on tray for 3-5 minutes before removing to let cool on a wire rack.

Happy eating! :)
