peanut butter cookies

When I was a kid, I used to bake peanut butter cookies all the time. One could say they were my go to cookie. And they weren’t just any peanut butter cookies; I had the perfect recipe. My neighbours loved them and requested them often.

That recipe may have been the first recipe I ever memorized but I would pull out the cookbook it was in and follow along anyways. After a few years, cookie dough, flour, and sugar were stuck in the pages and had stained the recipe.

After I went vegan, I stopped pulling out that cookbook. I probably tried to vegan-ize the recipe, but for some reason I stopped making peanut butter cookies. I made them on occasion, but I never found a vegan recipe that I loved.

Then I was diagnosed with celiac and I gave up completely. I hadn’t made peanut butter cookies in over a year! My gluten free baking has been getting better, and aquafba has been a dream ingredient, so I tried to vegan-ize my favourite recipe. And it worked!

I hope that you enjoy these as much as I do.

2. Mix in the baking soda and baking powder one at a time.

4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
