1-Bowl Vegan Spiced Peanut Butter Cookies

April 6, 2023
Full of festive spices and only using one bowl, this recipe is an easy vegan twist on the classic peanut butter cookie.

The rich, nutty flavor of peanut butter works well with spices like cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg, and the little bit of salt balances out the sweetness. Unlike most peanut butter cookie recipes, you don't have to chill the dough, so they're ready in just a few minutes and will fill your home with the most festive fragrance.

If you want them a little softer, bake for only 10 minutes. If you like a little crunch, bake for 13–15, but be sure to keep an eye on them.
