Recipe Review: Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies
I made Peas & Thank You’s Peanut Butter Cookies recipe this afternoon…and they were super delicious. Really soft and yummy, I (honestly) can’t tell the difference between them and traditional peanut butter cookies.
I used Better ‘n Peanut Butter instead of regular peanut butter, and it has a really sticky consistency. This probably had something to do with the dough ending up really sticky—so sticky that I ended up leaving about 1/4 of the liquid ingredients out, because I realized that adding all of it would have made them too thin.
Because they were so sticky, I couldn’t put the little fork imprints on them, (I know, I know, the hallmark of PB cookies.) but they still came out looking, smelling and tasting delicious.

Recipe Review: Not-quite Vegan Chocolate Chip Scones
I also made Vegan Chocolate Chip Scones—I’ve been wanting to make them since last week’s Friday Five. I hadn’t even considered that chocolate chips, unless they were dark chocolate, probably have dairy (milkfat, specifically) in them. This is a learning experience though, so I made them anyway, because I was really hungry, they looked delicious, and I wanted them. So I guess that’s why we’re calling me plant-strong and I don’t get to be the grand marshall in the vegan parade quite yet. (Is there one of those by the way?)
I didn’t have unsweetened applesauce, like the recipe called for, so after a quick google search used blended banana instead. I actually used extra banana, and reduced the sugar a little bit.
And since I was already blatantly not following directions, I decided to use 1 & 1/3 cups of oat flour, and one cup of regular flour. Oat flour is just blended up oats, and until now, I had been in the dark about it. But not anymore! I am going to use oat flour like it’s a party from now on, because I couldn’t even tell the difference.
I also couldn’t taste the banana, in case you were wondering.

I feel so sneaky doing these things, even though I’m the only one that’s eating them. Like I’m pulling the wool over my own eyes.
Well, I won’t be getting away with that!
