Who Doesn't Like Apples and Peanut Butter?..... Vegan Apple & Peanut Butter Cookies

Forget those peanut butter cookies that you have been making for years.  It's time to try something new!  And, who doesn't like the combination of apples and peanut butter anyway?  What I especially enjoyed about these cookies were that they were not overly sweet.  And, the use of oats also throws a bit of a twist on peanut butter cookies as well.

I decided to add apples, for one, because I don't think I have ever had apple pieces in a cookie and thought that it was a funky idea.  But also because we have these huge, delicious Michigan apples that were screaming out at me; eat me! eat me!

Vegan Apple & Peanut Butter Cookies

1 1/3 c flour
1/2 c sugar
3/4 c brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 cup rolled oats
1/2 c evoo
1/2 c natural peanut butter
1/3 c almond milk (unflavored/unsweetened)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 large apple diced

Preheat oven 350 and lightly grease cookie sheet.  In one bowl, mix all dry ingredients.  In another bowl mix evoo, peanut butter, almond milk, vanilla and apple.  Combine the dry to the wet and mix completely.  
Spoon out about 1-1.5 tbsp of batter and place on cookie sheet, flatten slightly.  Bake for about 12-14 minutes.  Let cool for about 5 minutes.
Enjoy with a glass of milk....almond milk that is, silly!
