Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Whenever we see cookies with the fork criss-crosses, it makes us so nostalgic and happy. It takes us back to baking peanut butter cookies with our Grandmother when we were younger. 

I personally think that the forkprints are mandatory for any peanut butter-type cookie. 

This recipe from Sunday Morning Banana Pancakes is the perfect peanut butter chocolate chip recipe. It's also low in refined sugars

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
makes 12 cookies

1 Cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour 
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup agave syrup
1 flax egg (1 tbsp flax + 3 tbsp warm water)
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup vegan dark chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a mixing bowl add flour and baking powder - mix well.
3. Add peanut butter through vanilla extract and stir until dry ingredients are well moistened.
4. Fold in dark chocolate chips.
5. On a cookie sheet drop dough by the tablespoon. With the tines of a fork dipped in flour press a criss cross pattern on the cookies.
6. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies begin to turn golden - rotating cookie sheets half way through baking. 
7. Remove from oven and allow to cool on cookie sheets. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
