Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. Vegan Gluten Free.

Oh how I love Angela Liddon. She’s a pioneer of vegan eating/blogging and I’ve followed her forever.  Her first cookbook was my road map when I started my vegan journey.  Her second cookbook has dropped & I cannot express how much I’ve been enjoying it.  I highly recommend it.  This was my first recipe I’ve had an opportunity to make & everyone who has tested them gives them 5 stars!  Winner. I did tweak a bit to lower the sugar but otherwise, just perfection.  A great staple to have for weekly snacking/lunches or dessert.
Ingredients:

1 tablespoon of flax seed meal (I used a chia seed/flax seed meal combo)
3 tablespoon of water
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup of coconut sugar
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
1/4 cup of vegan chocolate chips (I used Lilly’s)
1/2 cup of peanut butter (creamy)
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of maple syrup

Method:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Line your baking sheet with parchment or a Silpat liner.  Prepare your flax egg by mixing the flax meal and water in a small bowl.  Let that sit for 3-4 minutes until it congeals a bit.

Into a stand mixer with the paddle attached, add coconut, oats, sugar, powder & salt.  Blend to combine.  Then add your peanut butter, vanilla and syrup.  Mix for about 1 minute.  Then add your chocolate chip.  Some may remain on the bottom of your bowl – simply press them into the dough as you scoop it out.  Scoop the dough out with a mini scooper and place on your prepared pan.  Press down slightly to flatten out a bit.  Bake for 12 minutes or until golden.  Remove from the oven and let cool completely to allow to firm up.  Serve or store in an airtight container.
