This huge cookies were a huge it in my household and I know they’ll be in yours too!
Everyone needs a classic oatmeal raisin cookies recipe!
Except this recipe has no raisins, adds chocolate and walnuts plus is bigger than three cookies combined.
Okay, this is nothing like the classic! While the classic definitely has it’s place (whole grain cinnamon raisin bagel anyone!?), these Vegan Jumbo PB Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies will earn their place in your household too.
Now the original recipe calls for all the fat, carbs and sugar BUT I did test the recipe with alternatives. Here’s what I tested:
-Powered Peanut Butter with Regular (replaced 1/4 cup of the regular with 2 tbsp of powder and added a splash of almond milk)
-Pumpkin instead of Coconut Oil (banana or applesauce would work too)
-Monk Fruit Sweetener instead of Coconut Sugar (I used way less sweetener! 2 tsp was all it needed)
All these alternatives worked but I wouldn’t recommend trying them together. Honestly, baking is a lot of trial and error but that is what’s so fun about it! For me, baking isn’t really about the outcome but the experience of baking itself.
I hope you have fun with this recipe too! If you make it, could you tag @ahealthyharmony on Instagram? People like YOU are who make the community such a wonderful place.
