I've been continually searching for--and refining my own--recipes for vegan cookies.  Please see below for one I think is a success.  And who doesn't love peanut butter and jelly-themed desserts?

Vegan Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

1 cup unbleached flour
1/2 cup oat flour
1/2 cup oats
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 T non-hydrogenated vegetable spread (such as Earth Balance)
2 T oilve oil
2 T peanut butter
1 banana, mashed and mixed with 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup raisins
preserves of your choice
  • Preheat oven to 350. 
  • Combine flours, oats, and baking soda in a medium bowl.  
  • In a large bowl, beat sugar, vegetable spread, olive oil, peanut butter, and banana mixture until smooth and fluffy. 
  • Beat flour mixture into the wet mixture until well blended.  Add raisins.
  • Scoop dollops of cookie mixture on to a greased cookie sheet.  Use your thumb to make an indentation into the cookie dough.  Scoop a small amount of preserves into the indentation. 
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until cookie dough just begins to brown.
  • Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes and then finish cooling on a wire rack.
  • Enjoy!
