Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies & Milk


There is absolutely no food that I love more than peanut butter. If given the choice I would eat peanut butter for breakfast, for lunch and most definitely for dinner. Not a day goes by where there isn’t at least one jar of natural chunky peanut butter in my fridge.

As such I was quite amazed to discover that I had never posted about peanut butter cookies.  I make these cookies on days when cupcakes just wont do.  They’re a soft, slightly crumbly, melt in your mouth sort of cookie. Perfect for cold windy days like today.

  • ½ cup Vegan Margarine
  • ½ cup Natural Crunchy Peanut Butter

  4. I never thought I would like peanut butter cookies but one day I was at my favorite little cafe and they were all out of the lemon bars that I usually go for, so I went with the cookie. . . and ohmygosh was it good!

    So now I'm a total convert! And thank you for this recipe. Even though I'm not a full vegan anymore (more like 80%) I try refrain from eating animal products as much as possible and this looks delish :)
