These cookies might just change your mind about vegan, gluten-free baking. If you didn't know that they were made without eggs, butter or regular flour, you would never taste the difference. I fooled my family into thinking they were regular peanut butter cookies and I'm sure you will agree that they're delicious.
Vegan, Gluten and Dairy Free Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup vegan butter substitute (I used Earth Balance)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 1/2 cups gluten free all purpose flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon xantham gum
organic cane sugar
Combine dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture.
These cookies were really good. They didn't get crispy like I had hoped but I think if I had added another 2 minutes onto the baking time, they would have been perfect. Nobody in my family really seemed to mind the fact that they were soft - they dove right in and gobbled them up.
I spent 4 days riding the Silver Comet and I rode 150 miles. It was so much fun - exhausting and exhilarating at the same time. I took a few pictures with my iPhone while I was on the trail so I thought I would share them will all of you.
There are walkers, bikers, roller bladers, joggers and big wheels on the trail. It's great to see so many people exercising outside..
