These Double Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies by Wendy Irene have an indulgent dark chocolate flavor without intense sweetness. Coconut oil, although less common in baking, is a healthier alternative than traditional fats often used in cookie recipes. Coconut sugar and brown rice syrup provide a milder sweetness and are thought to have less of an impact on your blood sugar than table sugar. It’s the perfect treat for a sunny spring day. The only problem with them is… cookie monsters (husbands, children, anyone with a nose) will have a hard time waiting to eat them. They’re the best vegan chocolate cookies ever!
