Vegan no bake cookies!

Even though I have been eating a vegan diet for more than 2 years now, there are still some old favorite dishes and other food items that I have yet to replicate minus the meat, eggs and dairy. One of those is no bake cookies. You know, the yummy ones that show up at just about every holiday party? I haven’t had them in years and honestly hadn’t even thought about them much.

Then we had plans Monday night to visit a friends’ house and we needed to bring a snack. For some reason they popped into my head and I went straight to the internet to find a recipe that contained ingredients I already had on hand at home. Success! I don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner! I also wish I had thought to start taking pictures sooner.

Not only are these super tasty but I love the fact that you don’t have to bake them; although waiting for them to cool and harden is almost as time consuming 😉

I found this recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter no bake cookies on the Peta website thanks to Google! It was the first one that popped up when I searched for “vegan no bake cookies” so I went with it. I  followed the directions and ingredients exactly so you’ll have to click the link if you want to try it yourself 🙂 But I promise, they are delicious!

Still enjoying them for dessert a couple days later 😉

Cookie balls

My dear friend Mari is having an awesome Dunkin Donuts coffee giveaway over at her blog Namaste. Go check it out now!!

We are having a small Christmas / Monday Night Football party tonight and I wanted to take the opportunity to try out a vegan dessert. I went through the ingredients I had in my pantry and decided on Lindsey’s Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I didn’t have agave so I just used the pancake syrup I had on hand. I think that was the only substitution I made, other than once again using my chunky applesauce instead of opening up another jar.

They tasted really good but the first batch came out looking more like balls, so I smooshed down the second batch to make them look more like cookies 🙂

I can’t wait to try more vegan cookie recipes!

One thing I would like to invest in is one of those standing mixers. They are so expensive but I found that some of the ingredients in this recipe did not mesh together well and I wish I’d had a mixer like this one:
