Peanut Butter and Banana Cookies a Vegan Recipe

Vegan Peanut Butter and Banana Cookies now that is a recipe I thought I would never bake, but I am up for a challenge. So when my friend Linda who owns The Ferns, a Vegetarian Bed and Breakfast in Shropshire, was coming by for a cuppa and a catch up I promised I would bake some Vegan biscuits. We wanted to test a biscuit recipe that would be suitable for a Vegan guest at The Ferns.

I found a recipe for Peanut Butter and Banana Cookies that contained no eggs, no butter but ingredients that I also had in the house. Many vegan recipes contained specific ingredients such as dairy free butter, not something I normally have in my fridge. 

Such a simple biscuit recipe to make, and both Linda and I agreed they had a great taste and texture. I will certainly be baking these again. I halved the original recipe to make 15 biscuits, I also adjusted the amount of vanilla extract.

Vegan Recipe - Peanut Butter and Banana Cookies 

Equipment
  • bowl
  • scales  
  • wooden spoon
  • potato masher  
  • lined baking tray
  • fork
Ingredients

60g mashed banana
65g peanut butter
35g dark brown soft sugar
50g caster sugar
3/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
83g plain flour
half teaspoon baking powder
40g plain dark chocolate chips


makes 15

Instructions
  • Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas mark 5
  • In a bowl, mash the banana, stir together the banana and peanut butter until well blended. Stir in the dark brown 
    soft sugar, caster sugar and vanilla until smooth. 
  • Add the flour and baking powder to the peanut butter mixture and mix well. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips. Cover and chill dough for at least 1 hour.
  • Roll into walnut sized balls, space out on a lined baking tray. I would use a fork to gently push down on the dough, otherwise you will end up with ball shaped cookies.
  • Bake for 12 minutes, allow to cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to completely cool.

  10. Mmm, love the ingredient list. I'm dairy free and so often baking recipes have nasty DF margarine in, so love that these are au naturel! Thanks so much for sharing with Tea Time Treats, I do hope you'll join in again soon!
