No Meat Zone Recipes: Vegetarian Chocolate PB Salty Squares


Chocolate PB Salty Squares

1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup sugar [regular or brown]
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1.5 tbsp chunky peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup local honey
3.5 tbsp canola oil
handful of chocolate chips


Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking soda and powder, and salt. In a separate smaller bowl combine chunky peanut butter, honey, canola oil, and vanilla extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until well combined. Then gently stir in chocolate chips.

The batter will be crumbly, with wet hands dump onto a sprayed rimmed baking sheet and flatten out.

bake for 10-13 minutes, until the edges are a dark brown. Remove from oven, with a knife slice into squares and then leave to cool for a few minutes.

The dough set after cooking and made for a marvelous after dinner treat. We ate ours hot and straight from the oven. If left to completely cool they become a crunchier cookie.
