Who doesn’t love a classic peanut butter cookie? They’re even better when you make them vegan.
2 cups peanut butter at room temperature (smooth, crunchy, or a combo)
1 cup flour (whole wheat pastry, spelt, or einkorn)
1 cup natural granulated sugar
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 350º F.
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl.
Work together with a pastry blender or the tines of a large fork until completely blended.
Scoop the dough up by rounded tablespoons, or a bit more if you’d like larger cookies. Arrange on a parchment-lined baking sheet or two (or bake in batches).
Flatten the dough lightly with your palm, then press down lightly with a regular-sized fork in two directions to make that cool criss-cross pattern that peanut butter cookies are known for.
Bake for 10 minutes, or until the bottom of the cookies are golden brown.
Allow to cool for a bit to firm up, then transfer to a plate or container. Store cookies covered at room temperature.
