MCLV Mange: Peanut Butter Cookies

Sweet treats and baking have become part of my routine in the last year – In fact, I actually I didn’t really start baking until after I transitioned to a gluten-free, vegan diet. However with all my traveling and my busy schedule I’ve essentially been out of the kitchen for the last two months. I was thrilled to have house guests this weekend and decided to break out one of my favorite recipes to welcome them to San Francisco.

These cookies are a variation of The Wannabe Chef’s Gluten-Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies and I’ve made dozens of versions of these since he published this recipe in October 2012. This most recent adaptation is delicious and peanut buttery, in addition to being vegan.

  • 1 Cup Almond Meal
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 4 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • 1 Cup Applesauce
  • 1 Flax Egg {Check out vegan baker extraordinaire OhSheGlows’s description here}

PeanutButterCookies

And since they’re done in 15 minutes and throwing them together takes 5 minutes, they’re the ideal cookie for a busy day. I’ve made them with pumpkin and added a kick with pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon & nutmeg, and I’ve made coconut chocolate chip versions with coconut extract, shredded raw coconut, and carob chips.

What’s your favorite kind of cookie?

Stay tuned for the next MCLV Mange installment and check out the previous posts from this series to see what you’ve missed so far:

  6. Hi, this recipe sounds great. I was working on a gluten-free diet really hard for a while but I sort of fell off the bandwagon, I still use a lot of gluten- free products. I am about 80% meat free, I am a work in progess!
