does someone have a good peanut butter cookie recipe that they have personally made, tried and claim as very yummy? there are countless ones on the internet and never know what to trust! I dont really have the time to try a trial batch, so that's another reason why i'm asking on here. i'm making them for a gift for my friend (non-vegan), so ante up a recipe that'll have her saying "I can't believe these are vegan!" :D

thanks if anyone can assist me.:)

mmm that sounds delicious, but i'm really looking for just a normal old-fashioned veganized peanut butter cookie recipe. any other time i'd say heck yeah, but peanut butter cookies are specifically my friend's favorite. thanks, though! :-)

no i actually havnt. an omni friend from work wanted to bake me something for christmas so she asked me to bring in a recipe and that was the easiest i found that i figured an omni would be able to handle bc the ingredients are mostly main stream etc.

Mmm I think this is my next recipe I'm going to try. ;) Hopefully doing gluten free won't matter too much!

i love these ones!

Here's mine.

Thats the recipe I use, I actually know it off by heart now I've made them so much...lol I usually use Plain white gluten free flour though...although today I'm going to use buckwheat flour and see what happens...

Edit: I think I'll stick to white flour, they aren't nice with buckwheat...shame I've got no white flour until I go shopping.

I wonder if using oil instead of margarine would work. any recipes?

Nov 4th, 2006, 03:15 AM
The maple syrup one above had oil

Also found this one http://vegetarian.about.com/od/desertrecipes/r/pbcookies.htm

What about peanut butter cups, is it possible to make those? I saw some for sale on an online website once but they were way too pricey and made from crushed crackers. The chocolate part is easy but what about the peanut butter centre?

As for peanut butter cups, if you google for recipes you get tonnes:
see here (http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q=recipe+peanut+butter+cups&meta=)

Most seem to be just peanut butter and powdered sugar.

For the good of this forum I think you should have a go at making some and document the recipe. I'll then make the ultimate sacrifice by testing them :)

OK ;)

Have you ever had the real ones Mr F? When my sister went to America years ago she brought some back with her. I seem to remember them being quite edible (unlike the hershey's chocolate bars - yuck).

You'll have to get me some little tiny paper cases first. I have better plans for today anyway.

Which recipes is the best? I remember these from when I was kid [not that long ago].

Would love to make some of these today!

I think you should try them ALL. Then you get more cookies.

While we're on the topic of peanut butter again, I did indeed have a go at peanut butter cups.
I used a silicone mini muffin tray instead of paper cases.
