Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
Chocolate Cookie Dough
3.5oz vegan spread
pinch of salt
2oz self rising flour
4oz of whole wheat flour
½ cup of cocoa powder (sorry I’m an Imperial girl living in a metric world – my wires get crossed)
2tsp vanilla extract
Cream spread and sugar together and then knead in the rest of the ingredients to form a nice ball of dough. Set aside.
Peanut butter dough:
(Now, I don’t really have a recipe as I kind of winged it, but here’s what I did)
½ cup of organic salted peanut butter
½ a cup of flour (Next time I’ll reduce this to keep PB sticky)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to about 180C/350F
Knead it until a soft dough ball forms. Add the flour is small amounts until the right texture is achieved, as in you can roll wee peanut butter balls.
Take a chunk of the chocolate dough and roll a ball in your hands, then flatten out to make a small cup shape. put a peanut butter ball in the middle and curl the chocolate around until peanut butter is completely hidden. Flatten out and add to a pan. They take about 12 minutes to cook in a fan assisted oven.

i actually made these last night & I approve. use only ¼ cup of plain flour for the peanut butter mixture. i needed to add a bit of chocolate soy milk to the mixture cos it was a bit dry but that might have been my haphazard crap cooking. oh yeah and i used cheap peanut butter because imo that other shit is gross & tastes too much like real food/nutrition.
