Apple & Peanut Butter Cookies

These four-ingredient vegan cookies are so simple and delicious. The apples are cooked to a compote then mixed with oats, peanut butter (or any nut butter) and chocolate chips, then baked and that is all. Also gluten free adaptable, you just need to use GF oats. 

Substitute:

  • No apples? Use banana or pear instead. If you're using banana, start the recipe at step 2 – just mash the bananas with a fork and mix directly with the other ingredients. 
  • No peanut butter? Use any nut butter you like.
