Peanut Butter Maple Almond Cookies

Poor Veggie num num I’ve been neglecting you a little!! Simply finding the time lately has been a huge factor and I apoligise to all my lovely veggie followers that the recipes have not been as frequent as I would love. But, cookies always make everything better right?

Even when life is busy you need to find time to bake cookies and especially time to eat cookies… the simple process of whipping up a batch to share always makes me happy. Not to mention enjoying one of life’s greatest pleasure – the cookie itself :)

This quick and simple vegan cookie recipe is a variation on the peanut butter oatmeal cookie recipe I shared some time ago. Mixing it up with quinoa flakes and almonds for something a little different.

I hope you’ll enjoy this little cookie recipe and I promise to have more delicious veggie meals coming your way soon xo

Peanut Butter Maple Almond Cookies

Preparation time: 20mins
Makes approx. 20 cookies

  • ½ cup unbleached self-raising flour
  • ½ cup unbleached plain flour
  • 1 ¼ cup quinoa flakes
  • ¼ cup flaked almonds
  • ¾ cup dark brown sugar
  • ¼ cup hot water
  • ½ tsp bi-carbonate soda
  • 120g (4oz) smooth peanut butter
  • 3 tbs maple syrup
  • 2 tbs warm water (extra)
  • whole raw almonds (approx. 20)

Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/356°F and line two baking trays with grease proof baking paper and set aside.

Sift the flours into a large bowl and combine with the quinoa flakes, flaked almonds and brown sugar. Stirring well with a wooden spoon until well combined and any lumps of brown sugar are broken up.

Dissolve the bi-carbonate soda in the ¼ cup of hot water.

In a small bowl whisk the peanut butter with the bi-carb mixture and maple syrup adding the two tablespoons of hot water continue to whisk until the mixture becomes smooth.

Pour the peanut butter mixture in with your dry ingredients and using a wooden spoon bring the mixture together, combining well until you have a moist cookie dough (add more maple syrup or a little vegetable oil if the mixture is too dry).

Using a tablespoon roll out small balls of the cookie dough and place onto the prepared baking trays.

Squash each ball of dough gently with the back of a fork and then gently press a whole almond into each cookie.

Place in the pre-heated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes until the cookies are just golden.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the baking trays for just a few minutes before transferring to a cake rack to cool completely.

A super easy little cookie recipe – perfect for baking with little ones, enjoy!!

After being stuck at home sick all weekend these cookies were just the pick me up I needed! I was delighted to find I had all of the ingredients in the pantry and whipped them up with the little bit of energy I had.

And it was worth it, they are absolutely delish and made everything alright.

Thanks Trudy : )

I know what quinoa is (as it’s been sitting in my cabinet, waiting for me to cook it), but quinoa flakes?

So excited to find a vegetarian blog with delicious recipes such as these. These cookies look like they might be good over with my coffee this morning :) May have to whip up a batch of my own. I would love to share some of the recipes that I try from your blog on my own blog http://www.greeneyedsusan.blogspot.com too with proper credit of course.
