Vegan Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cookies

I am more than overdue a bit of a foodie post since my vegan pancakes and so here we are. It’s a rainy day, and I’ve not long got back from dropping Daisy off at the vets. I realise as I’m writing this I haven’t really mentioned what’s going on with her and all her vet trips, so I may as well share now since I am home and having a meltdown. Since we moved, Daisy has really struggled getting along with other dogs- she’s becoming affectionately known as Satan, which is really not a reputation we’re after having. We haven’t had her too long but she is long overdue being neutered and chipped since her last owners never bothered, so last week I took her to the vets for a check up.

Of course, if you don’t spay your dog, they’re at an increased risk of cancer – which we knew, and was a contributing factor to why we really wanted it doing – but it can also let them get a little too mothery and protective, and the end result can be a bit of an attitude problem like Daisy’s. Our vet is a lovely Spanish man who was really, really good with Daisy, despite her barking, whining, squirming and generally proving herself a bad patient. The bad news is that he found a couple of tumours, one literally as big as a grape in our tiny Jack Russell baby.

So that’s what she’s up to today- having some minor tumour removal, a mastectomy where the bigger one is, and a good old spaying.

Dropping her off was awful. She literally howled, and I sat outside the vets crying at a bus stop until one of the lovely women I see on our walks found me and gave me a tissue.

Home now, my response appears to be to cook everything. I’m preparing a roast for tonight, have made some kind of bizarre vegan potato salad for dinner and found some recipes for desserts and baked goods in my recipe books that I needed to try.

And so Vegan Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cookies were born.

Vegan Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cookies

These are the perfect treat if you’re into sweet and vaguely salty treats, which i absolutely am. The original recipe is from Super Healthy Snacks and Treats by Jenna Zoe– a book very kindly gifted to me by my friends mum and one that is full of delightfully tasty goodies which I have fallen in love with.

I have to admit, what started out as thumbprint cookies turned into cookie mess because, well, I’m not a baker, and for some reason the resulting cookier turned out more cakey, but still delicious. Smashed up with a bit of Choc Shot or jam they are still the perfect treat for any occasion, and literally took about 20 minutes to throw together.

Instructions
  1. Sift together all your dry ingredients and separately mix together the maple syrup, coconut oil and peanut butter until fully combined and liquified. Add wet mixture into the dry ingredients and mix until fully combined. Separate small portions of the dough and roll, flattening and creating a small indent in the very centre to house your topping. Pop in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes at 180 degrees. Once cooked, allow to cool and pop your topping in the indent. Lick all the bowls clean and enjoy!
