Peanut Butter Cookies

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Kozmic Blues

Simple and yummy and vegan! Flax seeds are a great substitute for chicken's eggs in baking, and add fiber and omega 3s! :)

These are really good Kozmic...! Your picture was what really sold me on trying them. I made a few subs...used only 1 cup of sugar and added a little molasses, which is OK but I probably shouldn't have messed with it. :) I also subbed 1/3 cup oil for the earth balance (that sub I think worked well...) I really like that you can flatten these out and get a more crispy style of cookie. Made for Veg*n Swap Mar10.
