What’s better than vegan peanut butter chocolate chip cookies? Not much, if you ask us. These cookies are easy, delicious, and beyond enjoyable. Serve with your favorite glass of non-dairy milk or vegan ice cream!


  • 1 cup of vegan butter, softened
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 cup of packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup of plain applesauce

  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons of hot water
  • ½ teaspoon of salt

  2. Cream together the butter and both sugars until smooth.
  3. Beat in the applesauce, peanut butter, vanilla, and salt.
