Variations for Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

  • Add non-dairy chocolate chips or chunks (Enjoy Life brand). Chunks are great added to the tops just after they come out of the oven.
  • Instead of flattening cookies with a fork, use your thumb in the middle of the ball. Add some strawberry or raspberry jam when they have cooled ... mini pb & js!
  • Put some non-dairy chocolate or vanilla "ice cream" between two cookies.
  • Crumble cookies into non-dairy "ice cream" and add some chocolate chips or shavings. Gives a peanuty twist to cookies and cream.
