Vegan Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies - Guest post by Ready, Freddie Go

I'm excited to share with you a fab recipe from Emma who blogs at Ready, Freddie, Go. Take it away Emma:

As Freddie is dairy free, he can end up missing out on some treats and baked goods that he used to love. Chocolate biscuits with a filled centre were his faves but sadly these all contain milk. 

Of course there are dairy free options but these are usually limited and a bit like for like, not to mention not the tastiest.

As Freddie loves to get involved helping out in the kitchen, I like to cook lots of dairy free things with him so he gets a feel of alternatives that he can eat and also some basic cooking knowledge. It's surprising how fast they remember the method of baking cakes and cookies at such a young age (and remember to ask to lick the bowl..!)
These are my vegan peanut butter and gooey chocolate cookies..the best bit is that because they are vegan you can lick the bowl & spatula to your hearts content as there is no raw egg. Like that's ever stopped me before though!


Dairy free spread 125g
Caster sugar 125g
Flour 200g
Vanilla extract to your taste (we like a lot!)
Baking powder 1tsp
We also added some smashed up dairy free chocolate & 50g cocoa powder to make them really chocolatey.
Peanut butter to fill the cookies with

  1. Cream spread and sugar together till pale & fluffy 
  2. Mix in flour, baking powder, vanilla, cocoa powder and the chocolate pieces 
  3. Roll into balls and flatten slightly with your hand, add a teaspoon of peanut butter (or more if you make big cookies), then roll and flatten a “lid” to make the top to the biscuit to seal in
  4. Bake on 180°C for about 12 minutes (maybe less if your oven is fierce, to keep them gooey!)
  5. Leave to cool and enjoy
I think these cookies are really adaptable, we have left out the chocolate & peanut butter and made strawberry jam and even lemon curd versions. 


Thank you for sharing the recipe Emma. You can keep up to date with her blog on the following social media:
