Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

No one eats vegan in my family, but sometimes, I think it does the body good to cut out all animal fats. These cookies started out being for my kids. They’re wholesome and have real fruit in them as well as peanut butter (which is probably my favorite thing to eat in the world).

They’re very delicate cookies when they first come out of the oven and need to come to room temperature to be handled by children—or adults for that matter. It made the dogs in our family extremely happy. They’re unparalleled hoovers.

Yields 20 cookies

1/2 cup margarine, softened
1 large banana, mashed
¾ cup brown sugar
1/2 cup (100 g) unsweetened peanut butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 cups oatmeal

  1. Preheat oven to 350 Fahrenheit and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. With a wooden spoon, whisk margarine, banana, sugar, peanut butter, and cinnamon in a large bowl.
  3. Add the oatmeal and the baking soda. Mix in the flour until smooth.
  4. Drop large teaspoonfuls of dough, spacing them two inches apart. They will flatten slightly and crinkle after they come out of the oven.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes or until your cookies turn golden.
