Vegan Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe Substitutions and Add ins
You can make substitutions to these perfect peanut butter cookies depending on what you have at home.
Natural Peanut Butter. I use smooth creamy peanut butter however you could use crunchy chunky peanut butter for a different texture in these chewy cookies. You can also use a different nut butter such as almond butter or cashew butter.
Coconut sugar. You can sub this for any granulated sugar, brown sugar would work well. You can sub for maple syrup but will need a few extra tablespoons of flour.
Coconut Yoghurt. Any dairy free yoghurt or normal yoghurt will work, vegan butter or coconut oil would work as long as they were not melted when mixing into the other ingredients. You can also sub for half a flax egg
Oat flour. I haven’t tested with other flours, spelt, all purpose flour or rice flour should work well.
Add ins. You can add a handful of chocolate chips, or add some cookie to the dough to makes these chocolatey. You could also drizzle some melted dark chocolate on the top or add crushed candy they m&ms or add raisins or other dried fruit.
How to store Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
You can store your peanut butter vegan cookie in an airtight container at room temperature for 1 week. You can also freezer the cookie dough balls and bake at another time if you want.
You can also freeze the cookies by using a freezer-safe bag. When you’re ready to enjoy simply defrost in the microwave until warmed through.
