Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies are healthy coconut flour vegan cookies with a shortbread crunchy and sandy texture made with only 4 ingredients.
I love to eat a good ‘buttery’ shortbread cookie with my green tea in the afternoon. I always have a box of cookie in my pantry with my favorite low carb shortbread cookies While I love those plain shortbread cookies, I am currently craving chocolate too! That is how I came up with this simple 4 ingredients chocolate shortbread recipe. I choose to use coconut flour in this recipe – it is low carb, high in fibre and the best flour to add a crumbly shortbread texture to cookies. As my husband won’t eat eggs I used a mix of creamy peanut butter and coconut flour in this recipe. The combination of both ingredients with the sharp blade from the food processor is what gives those vegan peanut butter chocolate cookies the most delicious sandy rough texture I love in shortbread.
All you need to make those lovely vegan chocolate peanut butter cookies are 4 ingredients and a food processor.
Those vegan chocolate peanut butter cookies are crunchy cookie, slightly sweet, with a delicious nutty ‘buttery’ flavor and an amazing sandy texture that makes them perfect with a cup of tea. They are perfect addition to a cookie box for any occasion like Christmas or a tea party with friends.
I decorated mine with melted sugar free dark chocolate and crushed peanuts. It is optional but I love the extra layer of chocolate on top of those cookies. I made 6 large cookies for the photography but I usually prefer to divide the dough in 8 portions to create 8 medium size cookies. They are very fulfilling and this is the perfect size to fix my sweet craving.
I hope you enjoy this vegan chocolate peanut cookie recipe. Leave me a comment and tell me more about it !
