Almost Vegan Cookies

This recipe (which, btw, I owe entirely to Monica’s brilliance) has made me quite famous in quite a few households, so I’m posting it here in case you’d like to attempt the magic on your own:

Almost Vegan Cookies*

from the kitchen of Monica and Emily

1/3 cup crunchy peanut butter

2 Tbsp. oil

1 cup sugar

1/3 cup milk

1 tsp. vanilla

1 cup flour

½ tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. salt

1 cup oats

½ bag chocolate chips

Cream together wet ingredients (peanut butter, oil, sugar, milk, vanilla) on medium speed until smooth. Add dry ingredients and combine. Bake on greased cookie sheets at 425˚ for 6 minutes for perfect, melt-in-your-mouth cookies. (Tbsp. sized balls work best.)

*To make this recipe truly vegan, substitute soy milk for regular milk, and use dark chocolate chips or a substitute.



  1. Yes!!!!!!! Thanks for the recipe. More thanks though for giving me delicious cookies and topping them off with delicious milk. Have a nice weekend!

  2. Yum, cookies! Cooked or uncooked, these are marvelous. 😛

  3. […] as if that wasn’t enough, there was a really sweet note and some almost-as-sweet almost-vegan cookies and some brownies in there too! What else could I need to brighten up my cell? Posted in Boxed, […]
