Chocolatey, peanutty, mouthwatering vegan and gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookies! Another recipe made with aquafaba!
We seriously emptied out the pantry when creating these cookies! I would have added walnuts if I had them, next time! In place of eggs I used my new favorite ingredient from last week…aquafaba! Read up here on aquafaba and for the BEST CHOCOLATE CAKE EVER! I was impressed once again with the consistency aquafaba lends to baked goods, very similar to using eggs! For a peanutty flavor I added organic peanut powder similar to PB2. If you’re not familiar with powdered peanut butter it’s peanuts that have been dehydrated and pressed. The end result is a powder that contains less fat and calories than peanut butter. I honestly don’t get the concept of powdered peanut butter as my favorite part of peanuts is its healthy fat content, but my mom left it at my house and I needed to use it somehow! It was a good way to sneak in the flavor without making the cookies too dense. You can also add it to smoothies and sauces in addition to baking with it.

I intended to bring these over to our neighbors, but they didn’t last long enough! They were a hit in my house and I hope they are in yours too! I will make another batch, I promise
