Vegan Peanut Butter Blossoms

Ever since the vegan cookie exchange last December, I've wanted to tackle making these. After getting to scoop on how my friend Betsy made the "hershey" kisses, I decided to try making my own vegan peanut butter blossoms. It is a modification on my peanut butter cookie recipe.

Peanut Butter Blossoms

1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar + 2-3 Tbsp. sugar to coat cookies
1/3 cup apple sauce or 2 Ener-G Egg replacer eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1 tsp. baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl combine the margarine and sugars until creamy. Add in applesauce or egg replacer and vanilla, and mix well. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until the ingredients are uniformly distributed. 

Once cookie dough is ready, roll into 1 inch size balls. Roll in sugar until completely coated. Leave in ball shape and place on cookie sheet two inches apart. Cook in oven for 9-12 minutes or until golden brown on edges. After removing from oven, immediately top with vegan "hershey" kisses. The chocolate will melt and attach to the cookie. Allow to cool so chocolate can reset. Place in refrigerator to speed up the process if you like.


  1. One of my favorite cookies that you just made even better. Well done!

    We invite you to share this and your other great creations on Food Frenzy.

  2. Wow, looks like a perfect cookie. Thanks for sharing the recipe! may I ask whether you used applesauce of Ener-G?

  3. I've done both and they work equally well. Let me know which you decide and how it works for you. Enjoy!

  4. Made these with whole wheat pastry flour and after baking a test cookie and seeing how flat it came out, added another 3/4 cup of the flour. They turned out fabulous!!!
