I thought I’d start out with a fun recipe for my first post, I’ve made these a few times now and they’re definitely a favourite. Here’s how I make them;
Ingredients; (This makes six cookies)
- 150g Peanut butter (chunky or smooth, I used chunky)
- 90g Maple syrup
- 80g Plain flour
- 90g Vegan chocolate chips (I used a chopped up bar of Cadbury’s Bournville)
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- A pinch of salt
Firstly, weigh out your ingredients and line a baking tray with baking paper. Then combine the peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla extract into a bowl and mix well.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour and salt until combined. Then mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until combined, finally mix through the chocolate chunks.
Form the dough into a ball with your hands, separate the dough in half, then each half into three. Roll each sixth of dough into a small ball and press down onto the lined baking tray, repeat this for the other five balls of dough.
Leave the cookies to rest in the fridge for about 30 minutes. While they are chilling, preheat the oven to 180⁰C (170⁰C for a fan assisted oven).
Bake for 8-10 minutes until very lightly golden brown. Leave the cookies on the baking tray for 15 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack (they will harden as they cool so if you attempt to move them while they’re too hot they’ll fall apart).It’s so easy to tweak this recipe, make them smaller and you’ll get more cookies, or add in chopped nuts or dried fruit instead of chocolate to change things that way.
Bye for now 🙂
