Sadly, I will NOT be participating in Vegan MoFo 2009. Honestly, I would love to, but in addition to the fact that I don’t have access to a well-stocked kitchen at school, my thesis completely precludes the possibility. I have approximately 30 pages due mid-October, so although there will undoubtedly be a mofo in my life, it will be a paper, and not a series of culinary creations.
To make up for my non-participation, I decided, at the very least, to kick off the month of October with a fun post, so here’s my midnight contribution to Vegan Mofo 2009!
1-2-3 Peanut Butter Cookies from Bittersweet Blog!
I made these at the behest of a friend in our school’s climate group. They’re doing a dorm energy-saving challenge, and those who sign up will receive one of these little gems! They’re hoping for a lot of sign-ups, so I tripled the recipe, using over 3 jars of PB. ;)
I chose this recipe because it was simple (just peanut butter, sugar, and ground flaxseeds!) so that they could easily pick up the ingredients, and get them organic, at that, from Trader Joe’s at a good price.
Wait, I lied. My friend Steph and I added chocolate chips, so I guess these were 1-2-3-4 Peanut Butter Cookies. But hey, either way, they ended up as delicious “buttery,” melt-in-your-mouth, crumbly domes of caramelized peanut butter lovin’.
I definitely recommend adding a mix-in. Next time, however, I might go for something a little less sweet, or if not that, slightly tart or sour, like dried cranberries or cherries, just because the cookies are so sweet themselves (given the fact that their volume is about 50% sugah!)
MoFo 2010, I will own you.
But until then, I’ll be eating cookies and reading others’ MoPosts!
