Vegan Maple Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Vegan Maple Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

This is a first.  The recipe I’m about to show you is something I came up with, inspired by a dozen other recipes and bakers, drawing upon my successes in trying their recipes and what I’ve learned from reading their (far superior) blogs.  I’m super excited to bring you this recipe, so let’s get to it!

Coconut Chocolate Chip Two-Bite Brownies

Every now and then you come across one of those recipes that’s absolutely amazing and despite the fact that you just made them, so you know quite well how many ingredients were involved, you’re still stunned by how simple they were to make!  Michelle’s Coconut Chocolate Chip Brownies from her website, Brown Eyed Baker, match that description perfectly.

Vegan Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Cookies

A can of pumpkin puree sitting in my cupboard, looking for a purpose, led me to another wonderful recipe from Maria and Josh at Two Peas and Their Pod.  I was inspired by their Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies to try out my theory on cocoa powder and the result was marvelous.  These cookies even won over a friend of mine who normally wouldn’t go near pumpkin!

Chocolate Chili Cookies

Our first recipe for the year starts us off with a kick thanks to Christina Marsigliese at Scientifically Sweet and her delightful recipe.  The pictures on her website should be enough to win anyone over, and in my search for a chocolate chili cookie to try out, her photos were easily enough for me to call my search complete.  My pictures don’t do them justice (apologies again for the night-time photography; the color’s going to be a bit off), so definitely check hers out for some proper enticement.

Double Chocolate Banana Bread

Many thanks to Deb at the Smitten Kitchen for this recipe!  I can sympathize with her very tiny kitchen because I make do with similar constraints, and so in the spirit of solidarity with those of us who bake in tiny kitchens I decided to give her recipe a try.  I’d been wanting to make a banana chocolate chip bread for a while.  When I finally went searching for a recipe to try and came across Deb’s the “double chocolate” part won me over right away.  In addition to both of us having tiny kitchens, it’s possible that Deb also shares my belief that there is no recipe that cannot be improved by the addition of cocoa powder.

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe comes to you courtesy of Karlynn at The Kitchen Magpie, after I had an inexplicable and sudden desire for that inimitable combination of mint and chocolate.  Mint chocolate chip ice cream wouldn’t suffice, I wanted cookies!  I came across Karlynn’s recipe and found it to be a simple, quick, and delicious solution.

Double Chocolate Tahini Cookies

Last November I featured the recipe for Orange Spice Cookies from “The Allergy-Free Cook Bakes Cakes and Cookies“, by Laurie Sadowski, which still holds the reigning position in my recipe collection for my favorite vegan recipe.  Recently I tried another of her recipes, intrigued by the concept of using tahini, a sesame paste, as the substitute for eggs and butter.  Tahini on its own is remarkably strong stuff, but when baked with a significant quantity of maple syrup the end result is delightfully flavorful with a noticeable, but not unpleasant, kick from the tahini complemented well by the rich sweetness of the maple syrup.  After faithfully following Laurie’s recipe for the first batch that I made, I decided to test out a theory of mine:

There is no recipe that cannot be improved by the addition of cocoa powder.
