What do you do when you get home at 8 o’clock at night with a serious hankering for a cookie but there’s no dessert anywhere in sight? I’ll tell you what you do.. you grab a bowl, 5 ingredients (okay.. you caught me.. it’s 6 if we count salt, but really who counts salt?!?), and make some darn good cookies! And then you try to wait patiently while they cool only to cave and eat one too soon, burn your entire esophagus as it goes down and wail in pain as your boyfriend tells you “I told you so!” Not that that happened to me or anything…

Okay, you got me. That totally happened. And it was worth it. Because then I was able to taste test another cookie since the first one burned my insides and I couldn’t truly taste the flavor completely (at least that’s what I told myself).  My second cookie was pure bliss. I took a bite, into the cookie and closed my eyes as I experienced my first cookie in months. These cookies completely satisfied my cookie craving. They are slightly sweet, dense and ooey gooey from all the chocolate. What more could you want in a cookie? Oh yeah, that quick prep and cook time doesn’t hurt.

Next time you have a cookie craving, don’t reach for those Oreos… make these vegan peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies (bet you can’t say that with a cookie in your mouth). Your cookie craving will be satisfied in under 20 minutes, that is.. if you can practice more self control than I did and wait until they finish cooling!

    1. Hi Geri! They’re rolled oats. I’ve updated the recipe to include that detail. Thanks for pointing it out!

    1. Let me know if you do! They’re so good! Especially for being so simple! They’ll think you slaved away forever making cookies πŸ™‚

    1. Ohhhhh yes!!! Pumpkin spice sounds divine in these! I think I’ll have a pumpkin version coming up quite soon!

    1. Thank you! I won’t lie to you.. there was a full cookie shot. Butt about two shots into that version I just had to take a bite! πŸ™‚

    1. Me too! peanut butter cookies might be my favorite! Adding the chocolate chunks just takes it to a whole bother level though!

    1. Thank you Julie! I hope you enjoy them! Also… pumpkin version is definitely going to have to happen this fall! Stay tuned πŸ™‚

  1. I’m glad to have found this. I love to bake and bring things in to work. One of my coworkers has a severe gluten allergy so she doesn’t get to partake of my goodies very often. I’ll have to try these!

    1. Thanks Anna! That is so nice of you to bring in treats for your coworkers! I hope your coworker with the gluten allergy enjoys these! I loved them and my gluten-loving boyfriend also did too! So they’re perfect for people with and without allergies πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Lara! They do get a little crumbly when you bite into them but they don’t fall apart (which is good in my book!) – enjoy! πŸ™‚

    1. hahaha Sara this made me laugh so hard! The good thing is these cookies aren’t that bad for you… I meannnn there could be worse things right? lol

    1. Yay!! Thank you so much! I’m so glad you liked them. Now I need to go make some more since you reminded me about this recipe!

  2. Thanks for this delicious recipe! I found this because I’m out of eggs and couldn’t make my favs, and then realized I’m out of honey also (apparently I need to go shopping!). I subbed with sugar mixed with water. Worked perfectly, they are so good!

    1. Yay! So glad you enjoyed them! I love that even though you were out of ingredients you could still make cookies!!
