Peanut Butter Cookies

While contemplating being vegan, I was perusing many vegan cooking sites, and came across this peanut butter cookie recipe. I haven't made peanut butter cookies in years, and they're not my favorite, but this recipe is the bomb! Louis even loves them, and he's not a peanut butter fan. The other nice thing, is they don't have any eggs, so I don't have to worry about running to my neighbors to borrow an egg if I don't have any on hand. 

Peanut Butter Cookies
adapted from this recipe by Dreena Burton

1 1/4 C light spelt flour
1 tsp baking powder
1⁄2 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp sugar
1⁄4 tsp salt
1⁄3 cup natural peanut butter
1⁄2 cup pure maple syrup
1⁄4 tsp blackstrap molasses
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 tbsp butter flavoured olive oil

1. Preheat oven to 350°F 
2. In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. 
3. In a separate bowl, combine the peanut butter, maple syrup, molasses, and vanilla, then stir in the oil until well combined. 
4. Add the wet mixture to the dry, and mix together until stiff and uniform.
5. Roll balls of dough in hands, and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Press with the tines of a fork to get the classic peanut butter cookie look. 
6. Bake for 11 minutes, then let them sit for no more than 1 minute before placing them on a cooling rack (to prevent drying). 
7. Enjoy with a glass of milk (or eat them right off the cooling rack like I did:)
