I absolutely LOVE peanut butter! If it came down to selecting my 3 favorite foods, they would be:

  1. Peanut Butter
  2. Broccoli
  3. French Fries

Even though I am more of a savory girl, these peanut butter cookies offer just the right amount of sweetness!

Drizzling the chocolate topping is definitely optional, but as my grandson insists, everything is better with chocolate!



  • 4 Tbl. vegan egg, mixed with 2/3 cup COLD water
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Earth Balance sticks softened (OR butter-flavored Crisco)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter crunchy
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 cups flour all purpose
  • 8 oz. dark chocolate chips, melted


  1. Mix vegan egg with cold water. Add Vanilla Extract.
  2. Cream Earth Balance and Sugar.
  3. Add vegan egg/vanilla extract to earth balance/sugar and mix well.
  4. Mix in peanut butter.
  5. Mix baking soda, salt & flour and then add to egg/butter mixture.
  6. Roll into balls (using approximately 1 heaping teaspoon) and place them on a prepared baking sheet.
  7. Using a fork, dipped in cold water make a crisscross design on top of each cookie ball.
  8. Bake at 350-degrees for 15+ minutes or until bottoms are slightly browned. Remove from the oven and let cool on a baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to complete cooling.
  9. Melt chocolate chips by placing them in a bowl over a pan of boiling water. Keep on the cooktop but shut off the burner. Using a spoon, stir until melted.
  10. Dip half of cookie into melted chocolate and place on a wire rack until set.
