Before I lost 125 pounds I would buy store bought cookies and devour a bag in the blink of an eye.  

Now, that I eat healthier and practice calorie control, I created this epic vegan peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe. You can customize it to suit your taste by using almond butter, cashew butter, sunflower seed butter, or adding chocolate chunks instead of chips or chopped nuts for more nutty flavor.

  • Optional – If you want a boost of sweetness, sprinkle a little regular monkfruit sweetener on top of the cookies. It will give you the crackle appearance that you see in my photos.

Can I Freeze These Eggless Peanut Butter Cookies?

Yes! If you want to store cookies for an extended period, you can freeze them. Place cookies in a freezer-safe container, separated by parchment paper and freeze for up to 3 months in airtight bags. Thaw at room temperature when ready to eat.

If you are not freezing then the best way to keep your peanut butter cookies fresh and maintain their quality, is to store them in an airtight container. This helps prevent moisture from getting in and keeps the cookies from becoming stale. Peanut butter cookies are often fine when stored at room temperature. Keep them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

Pro Tip: Place a slice of bread in with the cookies to keep them from drying out. Also, do not refrigerate cookies because this can cause them to dry out.
