One Bowl Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
These cookies are oil free, vegan, gluten free and made in just ONE bowl! They taste like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup in a cookie.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 17 minutes
Servings 12 cookies
- 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 3 tablespoons water
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
- 2/3 cup brown sugar (or coconut sugar)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups oat flour (gluten free certified if needed)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1-2 tablespoons almond milk, if needed
- 3/4 cup dairy free chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, add the ground flax and water. Stir and allow to sit and thicken for 3 minutes.
Next, add the peanut butter, brown sugar and vanilla extract. Stir with a wooden spoon until well combined.
Now add the oat flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder. Stir until well combined, but do not overmix. The dough should be sticky and moist. If it is too dry and crumbly, add a tablespoon or 2 of almond milk until sticky. Then fold in the chocolate chips.
Take about 2 tablespoons of cookie dough and roll into a ball. Place on the baking sheet and press down to form a disc. Repeat with the rest of the dough, leaving 2 inches of space between the cookies.
Bake for 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack (or just paper towels or parchment paper).
