Marbled Peanut Butter Cookies woven with chocolate make these cookies a dream come true. Easy to make with swirls of melted chocolate. A cookie lover’s favorite.
It is amazing how many cookie varieties there are in the world. So many times the ingredients are quite similar and the cookies turn out so different. I have a cookie recipe collection that fills a huge recipe box. I mean this recipe box has drawers and levels!
We were thinking of putting our house up for sale so I started packing some things that I thought I wouldn’t need right away. The boxes all went in a storage garage and many of my recipe boxes went over there too. Guess what? We didn’t list our house. I miss those recipes so much.
I know what I am going to be doing in the next month or so. Digging through boxes! I’m glad I have this Marbled Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe to share with you.
Marbled Peanut Butter Cookies
- In a large mixing bowl beat the dairy free butter and peanut butter at medium speed for about 20 seconds - until smooth.
- Mix your non dairy egg according to package directions. I use a chia egg which is 1 Tablespoon chia flour and 3 Tablespoons water. To make the flour you need to grind chia seeds to a fine meal. The flour keeps perfectly in the freezer for future use. Set the prepared egg aside.
- Melt the chocolate and set aside to cool a bit.
- Add 3/4 cup flour to the peanut butter mixture.
- Add the sugar, maple syrup, prepared egg substitute, baking powder and vanilla.
- Beat until combined.
- Add the remaining flour and beat well.
- Remove the beater and drizzle the melted chocolate over the batter. Lightly swirl in the chocolate with a wooden spoon so that there are streaks of chocolate.
- Roll into 36 balls and then roll in sugar.
- Put in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
- Place on an ungreased baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
- Slightly flatten the balls with the bottom of a glass.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 7-8 minutes.
- Cool on a wire rack.
After they have cooled you may freeze them in any of the methods shown in my article [Preparing Food for the Freezer.
They defrost quickly so it really doesn’t take any planning. Just put them on a plate for an hour or two and enjoy.
Another bonus for these cookies is that you can freeze the dough before baking. Just pop out a tray full, or more, defrost and bake when you are ready for a treat.
