I attempt to bake cookies for the FIRST TIME in my WHOLE LIFE! These are vegan peanut butter cookies... that have nothing to do with pirates, but pirates are fun


Apple sauce 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Chunky peanut butter 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Vanilla extract 1 Tablespoon
Brown sugar 1 1/4 Cup (20 tbs)
Whole wheat flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Unbleached flour 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Baking soda 3/4 Teaspoon
Salt 3/4 Teaspoon
Vegetable oil 1 Dash (For greasing)



1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

2. Grease a pizza stone or baking sheet with vegetable oil. Set aside.

3. In a bowl mix whole wheat flour, unbleached flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.


4. In another bowl add apple sauce, peanut butter and vanilla extract. Using a spatula mix well till combined. Add the brown sugar and continue to mix till combined.

5. Slowly add the flour mixture to the apple sauce mixture and mix well till smooth.

6. Put spoon full of the dough on the greased baking sheet (or pizza stone) and mark it with the fork while pressing gently to flatten.
