  • 2 Tablespoons Flax meal
  • 3 Tablespoons Water
  • 1 Cup Creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 Cup Brown sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Organic cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Vegan chocolate chips, I used Enjoy Life
  • 1/3 Cup Roasted salted peanuts, chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees(F).
  • Now, in a small bowl, make a flax egg by whisking together the flax meal and water. Let it sit for 2-3 minutes to thicken.
  • Next, in a large mixing bowl, add the peanut butter, brown sugar and cane sugar. Using a hand mixer, or stand mixer, beat together until fully combined.
  • Then, add the flax egg you made, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Continue to mix until everything is incorporated.
  • Pour in the chocolate chips and peanuts. Then fold them in with a large spoon or spatula.
  • Taking about 1 tablespoon of dough at a time, roll the dough into balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or sprayed with non-stick spray. Place each cookie about 2 inches apart from the others. You will probably need to do 2 batches.
  • Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes. Let cool completely before eating.
