5 Ingredient Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies
Okay, TECHNICALLY this recipe is NOT vegan but I'm sure with a little research, you can find ways to replace the egg with another ingredient. I've made these before sans the chocolate and they were ooey, chewy good. Dates, by the way, are a great way to replace sugar and serve as a great binding agent in desserts. They contain calcium, iron, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, magnesium, and zinc can be found in them. They also contain vitamins such as as thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, vitamin A, and vitamin K. So, this recipe is still a winner simply for the fact it contains dates. I'll be trying this soon with chocolate and chopped peanuts or almond next time.
Preparation Time: 15 min
Cooking Time: 10 min
Serving: 14-15 cookies
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter or almond butter
- 8 ounces pitted medjool dates ( 1 cup packed dates)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 8 ounces melted dark chocolate
- roasted peanuts, for topping (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In the bowl of a food processor, combine the peanut butter, dates, and vanilla. Pulse until well combined and no large chunks of dates remain.
- Add the egg and pulse to combine.
- Roll the dough 14-15 balls and place on the prepared baking sheet.
- Using a fork, gently press down on each dough ball to flatten and create a cross hatch pattern.
- Transfer to the oven and bake for 9-10 minutes. It's important not to over bake these cookies, so set a timer!
- Remove the cookies from the oven and let cool. To make dipping easier, freeze the cookies for 10-15 minutes.
- Drizzle or dip the cookies in chocolate and sprinkle with peanuts. Eat...or let the chocolate harden and store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
