Vegan Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

I’ve changed my mind and am going to post the vegan cookie recipe from Friday morning. At first I thought the recipe wasn’t worth posting, but after eating them for a few days and appreciating their extra-moist texture, whole wheat taste and sweetness, I’ve changed my mind. Fuzz likes them too, and she’s pickier about cookies than I am. So here’s the recipe. I left out the walnuts thinking that walnuts or pecans wouldn’t go with peanut butter. However, the way all the flavors come together in the cookies, the extra nuts would good. This recipe was adapted from a recipe off Recipezaar.

Vegan Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon crunchy peanut butter
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 cup turbinado sugar
1/3 cup soy milk (regular or vanilla flavored)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour (4 ounces weight or very lightly scooped)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips — use non-dairy such as Tropical Source
1/3 cup chopped, toasted walnuts or pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, stir together first five ingredients.

In a small bowl, thoroughly stir together flour, soda and salt. Stir into batter. Stir in oats and chocolate chips, followed by nuts if using.

Drop batter by rounded tablespoonfuls onto Silpat or parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or until set. Remove sheet from oven and let cool on tray for 5 minutes.

    Anna, this has nothing to do with your Vegan cookies but I had to tell you I baked a double batch of your Chocolate Chip Cookies (from Epicurious) to take to a friend’s son’s graduation party. I had them on a huge tray and they were gone in 1/2 hour – 92 cookies!!!! I was browsing through your previous posts and found the recipe. I told a friend at the party all about your great blog. Thanks so much – they were delicious!

    These are great! I didn’t have peanut butter or almond butter, but I tried the recipe with Tahini and they still came out really delicious!

    Stephen, thanks for the tip! I have some tahini on hand and might try that myself. Somewhere on this blog there’s a recipe for oatmeal cookies with tahini and those are really good. I guess the tahini version of these has a similar flavor.

    I made these cookies for my family and they loved them. I doubled the recipe and followed it exactly as stated. These cookies are very filling with a great taste. Will keep this recipe for future baking! Thank you for sharing.

    Hi Anna! I just made these cookies and they are beautiful. I was a little skeptical as I was scooping the dough; I was afraid the cookies wouldn’t hold together. I did use whole wheat flour instead of the pastry flour. Tasty treats! Thanks for sharing all of your recipes.

    Great recipe! I used sun butter, cut the sugar to 3/4 cup (partly altitude of 10,000 ft and partly just to make them healthier), spelt flour, and used sunflower seeds, coconut, and mini chips. Thank you!
