Awesome Peanut Butter Truffle Cookies

What you need: 

1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg replacer (I use 1 1/2 teaspoons Ener-G Egg + 2 tablespoons water)
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a cookie sheet, or line with parchment paper.
2. With a spoon, mix together first 4 ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chips.
3. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2" apart. Bake for 9 minutes. Let them cool on the sheets for about 5 minutes before you try to take them off, so they don't fall apart.'

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I like healthymomma's adaptations.  Those sound perfect for my dietary choices.

Actually between the original recipe and the changes suggested by healthymomma and gardengate, I think that I must try this recipe.  But I will have to go shopping first.

Let me know how it turns out. 

gardengate, Do you make your own applesauce?

Hi!  To answer your question, no, I don't make my own applesauce.  I just purchase unsweetened applesauce from the store.  I normally get Musselman's.  I have actually made these using the different ingredients that were discussed.  Healthymomma was very correct!  The cookies turned out to be a totally different recipe, but they were extremely good!  In fact, they were so different in ingredients and measurements that I just decided to post it as a different recipe on this website.  I added them today and I will be adding some pictures of them when the recipe is put up.  So, if any one is interested in seeing my totally different version with my measurements, you can look it up.  I titled them "Almond, Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip Cookies".  After substituting so many of the ingredients, the texture was not at all like this other recipe would have been.  It was very sticky and doughy.  So that is where the oatmeal comes in with the title.  It is used as a thickening agent.  I hope you are able to look at it and I hope that you will like it if you try it!  As for this other original recipe, I will just have to make it the way it is to try it out, because doing it my way was indeed a different cookie.  However, it was fun and interesting to experiment and I found out on accident how to make a delicious cookie! :)

I would think to make these raw would be a totally different recipe. I'd leave the baking soda out, use flax or banana for the egg replacer. PB is harder to find raw, so I'd use almond butter and maple syrup or agave for the sweetener. Then, of course, cocoa nibs, ground finely (my preference). That may need some sort of adjusting for amounts. It sounds tasty, though it'd be a completely different recipe.
Tell us how it turns out!

Hi!  Thanks for replying!  I think I'll take your advice with the almond butter.  I am always making raw almond butter anyway for a raw vegan cheese spread that I have on hand all the time.  As for the egg replacer, I always use applesauce with some cornstarch mixed in, and that has proved to be a great replacement!  I use it in baked goods all the time and they come out very moist.  I will also try the maple syrup like you said.  I love maple syrup and it makes a wonderful sweetener!  Where would you get cocoa nibs??  I have dairy free semisweet chocolate chips.  I know those are raw, but I don't know where to find the other.  When I make it, I'll let you know how it turns out!

Wow!  This sounds amazingly good!  I really want to try it!  Would I be able to dehydrate these instead of bake them???  I like to try and make things as raw as possible.  If I could dehydrate them, how would that work with the baking soda involved?  Would I leave it out?  Thank you for posting this!  I will have to try it.  I actually have all ingredients on hand too!
