Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

So I recently discovered that Pret A Manger sells these amazing praline cookies. They’re soft and chewy, and when you bite into them there’s a chocolate/hazelnut filling. Unfortunately they’re not vegan, so after buying a few I decided the only way to get my fix of filled cookies is to make my own.

This is another modification of my orange and date cookies, it’s a little bit more fiddly, so I’ve added a lot of photos to show how I fill them. In the end, you’ll get a soft, moist, chewy cookie with a creamy peanut butter filling. They’re very moreish!

Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies (Makes 8 cookies)

Prep time: 5 mins
Cooking time: 10 mins

Ingredients:

Dry ingredients
2 cups plain flour
1 cup soft brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

Wet ingredients 
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup almond milk
8 teaspoons vegan peanut butter

Method

  • Preheat oven 200C
  • In one bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and bicarb of soda
  • In another bowl, combine the sugar, coconut oil and milk. Mix thoroughly, until you have a caramel-like texture/appearance
  • Add the dry ingredients to the sugar mixture. Mix thoroughly. The texture should be crumbly
  • Spoon a tablespoon-sized amount into the palm of your hand. Roll into a ball, then indent the ball using one of the knuckles on your other hand. Spoon some peanut butter into the indent. Afterwards, spoon more of the cookie mixture to cover the peanut butter and carefully shape/compress the mixture into a round, slightly flattened cookie.
  • Do this 7 more times, then place in the oven on the top shelf for 10 mins
