Today I have a class party at uni, so I wanted to make something I could actually eat. I hope everyone will like them and no one is allergic to peanuts. They taste pretty good, but I’m use to people not wanting to try things when I say they are vegan. So I might wait till people have started eating them, before I mention it. The last two times I’ve made cookies I made the silly mistake of not stirring the dry ingredients enough, so when they were ready there were a few salty bits. I think it must of been the baking soda, it tasted really horrible. So fingers crossed I mix it enough today. For all my Australian friends, you have to try the Organic Macro Peanut Butter. Its 100% peanuts with nothing extra. In fact it doesn’t need anything else. It taste just as good as any brand, just without the extra oil, salt and sugar.
