Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies with Orange
These peanut butter chocolate cookies get their aromatic kick with orange zest. And I baked them only with ingredients which I had in stock, even the orange. That’s one of my goals at the moment: to use up all the food I already have before I go to buy new things. It’s one of many little ways to reduce food waste in my household. And with this knowledge I liked my peanut butter cookies even more. They are vegan, without flour and without refined sugar. Actually, they came out so good that I decided to share the recipe here on my blog. And here we are:
Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies with Orange –
Vegan and without flour
Makes 20 cookies
- 200 g almonds
- 150 g dark chocolate, 70% cocoa
- 1 orange
- 200 g oats
- 2 tsps baking soda
- 1 pinch of salt
- 4 tbps peanut butter
- 300 ml plant milk (for example almond milk)
- 50 ml maple syrup
Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius (convection). Grind the almonds in a food processor. Roughly chop the chocolate into chips. Wash the orange with hot water, dry it and grate the zest.
Add almonds and chocolate to a large bowl and mix with oats, baking soda and salt. Then add the remaining ingredients and mix well. If the dough is too thick, add some more plant milk.
Lay out a baking sheet with baking paper. Shape about 20 balls with humid hands, put them on the sheet and flatten. Bake the cookies in the oven on a medium rack for about 30 minutes.
When the cookies are lightly browned, remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.
