Oaty Choc-Nut Chunk PB Cookies

Here is another vegan recipe inspired by fellow veggie bloggers, delicious and simple little peanut butter cookies, made even more scrumptious with the added yum of dark chocolate and nuts! I spied this recipe on Claire’s always delicious blog A fresh Dille and she in turned shared the recipe from one of the most beautiful veggie blogs out there, have cake, will travel.

I didn’t really change the recipe too much, just doubled the quantity (opps, yes there are only two of us but boy, do we like cookies :) and added chunks of a dark chocolate with almonds instead of chocolate chips. Plus I reduced the sugar simply because the rice milk I use is naturally sweet and I used a store brought peanut butter that had added sugar, so depending on what you use you may wish to add a little more sugar to the cookies.

The result is a perfect little chewy PB cookie with the chunks of delicious dark chocolate and the added texture and flavour of oats. A simple recipe to follow, these vegan cookies are super awesome and perfect for sharing with family and friends. Pack them in your lunchbox or sever them up with a fresh pot of tea or glass of non-dairy milk for a perfect little snack anytime of the day!!

Oaty Choc-Nut Chunk Peanut Butter Cookies

Preparation time: 20mins // Makes approx 18 cookies

Print Friendly
  • 50g (1¾ oz) (approx. ½ cup) dark chocolate (I used a fair-trade dark chocolate bar with almonds)
  • 50g (1¾ oz) (approx. ½ cup) walnuts (or pecans, or almonds or hazelnuts or…)
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup traditional oats
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tbs sunflower oil
  • 2½ tbs rice milk (or any non-dairy milk)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/392°F and prepare two large baking trays by lining with baking paper.

Chop the chocolate and walnuts into chunks with a sharp knife, set aside.

Shift the flour and baking soda into a large bowl, add the oats, sugar, chocolate and walnut chunks and stir to combine well.

In a jug whisk/stir the peanut butter with the oil, rice milk and vanilla extra until smooth.

Mix the peanut butter mixture with the dry ingredients until well combined.

Using a tablespoon, spoon out each cookie portion onto the prepared baking trays and flatten slightly.

Place in the pre-heated oven for 10-13 minutes, remove from the oven just as the cookies start to golden.

Allow to cool on the baking trays for 5 minutes before turning out onto a rack to cool completely.

    Yum, these look delicious. It’s great when you find recipes on other food bloggers sites that speak to you isn’t it? I love your addition of chopped chocolate and nuts. I am sure my boyfriend will love these. Bookmarking :)

    Thanks for the sweet shout out lady! These cookies were chewy goodness! I am pretty sure the pb was the key ingredient…Happy you enjoyed them too!

    Oh dear goodness, I can feel the. Urge. To. Bake. And. Eat. Which is ridiculous, because I have just eaten two vegan sausages, some remaining pilaf (your recipe), and am hungrily eyeing a museli bar!

    But, I have to say, a bit sadistic of you to sever up the biccies isn’t it…I mean, they are pretty inoffensive mostly? 😉

    Have a great day and thanks for sharing such awesome and fantastic delights!

    These sounds great. I haven’t made peanut butter cookies in a long time and I’d love the texture from the oats in these.

    I keep stumbling across oatmeal cookies/bars on the blogs I follow these days. And I baked my own on the week end. Seems like whatever the season we all have the same inspiration. I have oats and choc left over from my bars (which I will be posting about soon), so I could try these right away…

    These are in my oven right now! I had to add more milk though. I was at the bottom of my natural PB where there was much less oil… so it was too dry without extra milk. Can’t wait to try these!

    Also, I forgot the dark chocolate I bought has milk powder in it so mine aren’t 100% Vegan (neither am I lol).
