Chocolate chip peanut butter oat cookies

vegan gluten free cookies

Peanut butter, chocolate chip, oat cookies – vegan, gluten-free, organic and fair trade: What more could you want? πŸ˜€

I just felt peckish so I raided the cupboard for ingredients and found what I needed:

  • Organic rolled oats
  • Organic Fair Trade sugar
  • Organic Fair Trade chocolate
  • Organic Fair Trade peanut butter
  • Organic Fair Trade Sunflower Oil
  • Water (not in the cupboard)

These are so quick and easy πŸ˜€

Weigh out 8 ounces of oats and put them through the food processor to turn them into flour.

Put the oat flour in your mixing bowl and add 4 ounces of sugar. Β Mix well.

Then break up about 60 grams of chocolate (I used Moo Free) and put it into the food processor with about 3 heaped spoons full of peanut butter, I think (it’s up to you how much you use, I can’t actually remember exactly how much I added this time πŸ™‚ ).

Whiz the peanut butter and chocolate around with the ‘S’ blade for a few seconds until the chocolate is in little chips and beautifully combined with the soft peanut butter. Β Of course you can do all this by hand, it’ll just take a little longer πŸ™‚

By the way, the peanut butter is unsalted with nothing added – it’s nothing but organic roasted peanuts.

Leave the peanut butter and chocolate to one side while you add about 100 ml of sunflower oil and 5 tablespoons of water to the flour and sugar in the bowl and mix well.

Then add the peanut butter and chocolate chips and mix it in until you have your moist cookie mixture.

This is an oily mixture so you shouldn’t need to grease the baking trays but I lined them with eco-friendly greaseproof paper which is optional.

Put heaped teaspoons of the mixture onto your baking trays and then flatten them with the back of a wet spoon. Β This recipe makes about 24 cookies.

Bake for 20 minutes at 180Β°c (in a pre-heated fan oven).

Remove and put on a rack to cool.

  4. Ha! I’m pretty sure I have the exact same ingredients in my cupboard… And I also have a Wallace & gromit mug too! I MUST make them today, they look so good πŸ™‚ I’m a bit of a vegan cookies mad lady… For my birthday, a couple of weeks ago I had to go to Brighton, just to buy another copy of the amazing vegan cookbook, Another dinner is possible, at the Cowley Club so that my husband could make me the best cookies I have ever had, which recipe is in that very book πŸ˜€ I ll happily try yours today, as they look awesome too, thanks !
