Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup + 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, softened (from a tub, not a stick)
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 + 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 20 vegan chocolate kisses or mini peanut butter cups

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Create the flax egg by adding 1 tbsp ground flaxseed and 3 tbsp water to a small bowl. Whisk together and rest for 15 minutes. 
  3. After, add 1/2 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, creamy peanut butter, vegan butter, flax egg, and vanilla to a large bowl. Use a hand mixer to cream the ingredients together. Add all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt to the bowl. Fold ingredients together until thoroughly combined. 
  4. Roll the cookie dough into 20 balls. Add 1/4 cup granulated sugar to a bowl. Roll each ball in the granulated sugar and place on the baking sheet.
  5. Bake cookies for 11-13 minutes. The cookies will appear soft and slightly underdone. They will firm while cooling. After removing from the oven, immediately press a chocolate kiss or mini peanut butter cup into the center of each cookie. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack. 
  6. Enjoy cookies with a cold glass of almond milk! 

Notes

  • Keep leftovers stored in an airtight container. The cookies should keep for 1 week.
