Peanut Butter Cookies

What you need: 

1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/2 cup non-refined sugar
1/2 cup sucanat or brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon Ener-G Egg Replacer
2 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

What you do: 

Combine margarine, peanut butter, both vegan sugars and water. Sift together the dry ingredients, then stir into first mixture. Mix completely. Roll into 1 balls, and place about 3 apart on greased cookie sheet, then flatten with a fork. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes, until cookies are set.
You can use one cup of sucanat instead of two different vegan sugars, and the cookies still come out perfect.

Very good. I used a teaspoon of cornstarch instead of egg replacer (all i could think of that i had, worked out nice). I added mabye 2 tablespoons of extra water towards the end because it was a tad dry, and it worked out great.
;)b Yummy


This is only the second or third time I've ever made or eaten pb cookies (I don't really think they are a UK thing!)

I only made half the recipe and I'm glad I did - just coz otherwise I'd have too many round the house for me to eat!
I did find the dough quite dry, so I added 2 teaspoons of water towards the end.  I also added a couple of handfuls of chocolate chips, because for me cookies just aren't cookies if they don't have chcolate chips in ::)  Oh and also I don't have eger-G, so used my usual egg sub of chickpea flour.

I made 22 cookies in all, about 2 inch in diameter.  They were cooked for 10mins and they are perfect - the edges are nice and crispy and they middle is nice and chewy.
I really liked the idea of rolling in a ball and flattening with a fork - it means they come out nice and uniform and have a nice pattern on top :)



I made these, subbing 1 cup of the flour for 1/2 cup coconut, and 1/2 cup oat flour, subbing the water for maple syrup, and adding 1/2 tsp vanilla, and they were good. Not the chewy pb cookies I had in mind, but my grandmother sure seemed crazy over them  :)


these are great cookies. I thought the batter was perfect and the cookies perfect too (though I cooked for approx. 13 minutes each batch) and got 30 cookies.  :)
also, I subbed half the butter with applesauce. I probably could have subbed half or all of the oil too, but this time around, I did not.
thanks for the recipe!
