These Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies have a crunchy outer layer of chocolate (cocoa) with a filling of smooth peanut butter.
It’s meatless Monday and we are having Thai peanut stir fry with brown rice tonight. My husband is always in the mood for something sweet after dinner.
These vegan cookies are the perfect way to end a delicious meal.
They are super yummy and satisfy my yen for peanut butter and chocolate!
The combination of chocolate and peanut butter is one of my most favorite sweet treats.I always warm these cookies just before eating to get that straight from the oven taste. They are delicious with a spoonful of Soy Vanilla Ice cream.
If you like the taste of a home made peanut butter type of dessert, this sweet treat will be sure to tempt you.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies are a Mouth Watering Treat
These chocolate peanut butter cookies are easy to make. They use Soy Silk milk instead of normal milk.
Maple sugar and real sugar (vegans can use vegan cane sugar if they are concerned about the charcoal aspect.)
And of course – cocoa and peanut butter are the stars of the show!

The ingredients are things you will likely have in your pantry if you make vegan recipes.
- Canola oil
- Granulated sugar (vegans use vegan cane sugar)
- Pure maple syrup
- Soy Silk non dairy milk
- Pure vanilla extract
- All-purpose flour
- Unsweetened Dutch processed cocoa powder
- Baking soda
- Kosher salt
You’ll also need peanut butter and confectioner’s sugar for the filling.
How to make the cookies
Combine the sugar, oil, maple syrup, vanilla and soy mix until smooth, then stir in the flour, cocoa power, baking soda and salt. It will make a nice moist dough.
Make the filling by combining the peanut butter, confectioner’s sugar, soy creamer and vanilla. This will make a second dough.
The cookies are made by rolling out 24 peanut butter dough balls and scooping out some of the chocolate dough, flattening it into a disc and wrapping it over the peanut butter center.
A silicone baking mat will make sure the cookies don’t stick. Flatten the dough balls just a little. They will flatten more in the oven.
Bake and cool. That’s all there is to these yummy peanut butter chocolate cookies!
Storing the cookies
These cookies keep well when stored in a tightly covered container. To get that warm cookie feeling, just zap them for 10-12 seconds in the microwave before eating. They are best served warm.
The chocolate dough is rich and flavorful, slightly crumbly, but still chewy. The filling is the perfect consistency and very peanut butter-y.
