I love peanut butter… And who doesn’t, right? In the bakery section of Whole Foods they have the most amazing vegan peanut butter cookies. They’re so good that I’m completely guilty of buying even 5 at a time.
Yes, they’re vegan but that doesn’t mean they’re healthy. That’s a big misconception some people have. The fact that something is labeled gluten free or vegan doesn’t mean that it’s good for you.
I have no idea of what ingredients they use to make these cookies. Maybe they’re completely clean or maybe they are packed with refined sugar, oils and processed flours. That’s why I decided to come up with a recipe and make my own at home… Enjoy!
