Halloween Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
vegan, makes 2 dozen
2 1/2 cups white flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup water
2-3 Tbsp canned pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup brown sugar (break up any clumps by melting into warmed vegan butter)
1/2 cup vegan butter, melted/warmed in microwave
2 Tbsp maple or agave syrup
3/4 cup salted creamy peanut butter, room temperature
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
topping: Halloween confetti
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Sift together dry ingredients. Fold in the wet ingredients. Lastly, fold in the chocolate chips and the optional egg replacer. Adjust with a few spoonfuls of flour if the dough is too sticky to hand roll into balls. Otherwise, you can chill dough in fridge or freezer for easier handling.
3. Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool.
