Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies


1 cup 100% peanut butter

1 cup light brown sugar

2/3 cup plain flour

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 cup water


Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking sheet with wax paper.

Add the peanut butter, vanilla extract and sugar together and mix.

Sift the flour and baking powder together then add to the peanut butter mix.

Add the water and bring to a dough.

Rest in cling wrap in the fridge for 30 minutes.

I weighed my cookie dough so each one was 15g, but just use a teaspoon per cookie if you are time poor.

Roll into balls and place on the prepared tray leaving space for them to spread out a little. Press the top with the prongs of a fork, gently.

Bake for 20 minutes, then cool on a rack.

You may want to double this recipe as they are very moreish and not overly sweet.
