I used Ripple Pea non-dairy milk in place of the coconut oil to make them healthier without compromising taste.

I also blended the oats into oat flour to create a less grainy texture.

Lastly, I doubled the recipe because one batch just wasn’t enough 🙂

Bakery style, Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

Before diving into the recipe of these amazing & healthy cookies, remember to check out my Instagram, @thekellydiet for more recipes not on the blog!

img_9721

Like this ‘Edible Protein PB Pancake Batter!’

These PB cookies might be the best thing I’ve eaten all week. They are soft, fluffy, the perfect balance of sweetness, filling… & just so good I have a hard time not eating the whole batch in one sitting!

These cookies are made with 3 flours, one being Sprouted Spelt Flour.

I love sprouted flour because you get additional nutritional benefits, without compromising flavor or taste. That is because the dormant vitamins & minerals in grains are activated & brought to life during the sprouting process. In addition, sprouting also breaks down the grains’ natural protective barrier, making them easier to digest.

The last thing I decided to added to this recipe was the applesauce. The batter was still too dry & I didn’t want to add any more fat. Applesauce is such a staple in my healthy baking & it really helped these cookies reach the consistency I was looking for.

So, let’s get baking!

Cookies & Cream Protein Bars

I love baking with vegan protein powder. Orgain sent me their newest flavor of protein powder, Cookies & Cream, and I couldn’t wait to make something with it!

I had 3 large ripe bananas, so I threw that in my mixer and went from there. I bake a lot with bananas & I’ve been asked by some of you for alternative options. Pumpkin puree is a great replacement for bananas. You will end up with a slightly different taste but the texture will remain the same.
