Oaty Choc-Nut Chunk PB Cookies

Here is another vegan recipe inspired by fellow veggie bloggers, a delicious and simple little peanut butter cookie, made even more scrumptious with the added yum of dark chocolate and nuts! I spied this recipe on Claire’s always delicious blog A fresh Dille and she in turned shared the recipe from one of the most beautiful veggie blogs out there, have cake, will travel.

I didn’t really change the recipe too much, just doubled the quantity (opps, yes there are only two of us but boy, do we like cookies :) and added chunks of a dark chocolate with almonds instead of chocolate chips. Plus I reduced the sugar simply because the rice milk I use is naturally sweet and I used a store brought peanut butter that had added sugar, so depending on what you use you may wish to add a little more sugar to the cookies.

The result is a perfect little chewy PB cookie with the chunks of delicious dark chocolate and the added texture and flavour of oats. A simple recipe to follow, these vegan cookies are super awesome and perfect for sharing with family and friends. Pack them in your lunchbox or sever them up with a fresh pot of tea or glass of non-dairy milk for a perfect little snack anytime of the day!!

Preparation time: 20mins
Makes approx 18 cookies

  • 50g (1¾ oz) (approx. ½ cup) dark chocolate (I used a fair-trade dark chocolate bar with almonds)
  • 50g (1¾ oz) (approx. ½ cup) walnuts (or pecans, or almonds or hazelnuts or…)
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup traditional oats
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tbs sunflower oil
  • 2½ tbs rice milk (or any non-dairy milk)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/392°F and prepare two large baking trays by lining with baking paper.

Chop the chocolate and walnuts into chunks with a sharp knife, set aside.

Shift the flour and baking soda into a large bowl, add the oats, sugar, chocolate and walnut chunks and stir to combine well.

In a jug whisk/stir the peanut butter with the oil, rice milk and vanilla extra until smooth.

Mix the peanut butter mixture with the dry ingredients until well combined.

Using a tablespoon, spoon out each cookie portion onto the prepared baking trays and flatten slightly.

Place in the pre-heated oven for 10-13 minutes, remove from the oven just as the cookies start to golden.

Allow to cool on the baking trays for 5 minutes before turning out onto a rack to cool completely.

Yum, these look delicious. It’s great when you find recipes on other food bloggers sites that speak to you isn’t it? I love your addition of chopped chocolate and nuts. I am sure my boyfriend will love these. Bookmarking :)

Thanks for the sweet shout out lady! These cookies were chewy goodness! I am pretty sure the pb was the key ingredient…Happy you enjoyed them too!

Oh dear goodness, I can feel the. Urge. To. Bake. And. Eat. Which is ridiculous, because I have just eaten two vegan sausages, some remaining pilaf (your recipe), and am hungrily eyeing a museli bar!

But, I have to say, a bit sadistic of you to sever up the biccies isn’t it…I mean, they are pretty inoffensive mostly? ;)

Have a great day and thanks for sharing such awesome and fantastic delights!

These sounds great. I haven’t made peanut butter cookies in a long time and I’d love the texture from the oats in these.

I keep stumbling across oatmeal cookies/bars on the blogs I follow these days. And I baked my own on the week end. Seems like whatever the season we all have the same inspiration. I have oats and choc left over from my bars (which I will be posting about soon), so I could try these right away…

Yay for cookie love :) thanks for the comments all!!!

These are in my oven right now! I had to add more milk though. I was at the bottom of my natural PB where there was much less oil… so it was too dry without extra milk. Can’t wait to try these!

Also, I forgot the dark chocolate I bought has milk powder in it so mine aren’t 100% Vegan (neither am I lol).
