Peanut Buttery Sandwich Cookies

BY : PUBLISHED : February 5th, 2014 UPDATED: August 25th, 2021

If you are a peanut butter fan like me you should definitely double this recipe and make an extra batch. If you’re not a peanut butter fan you should make these with almond butter instead! Really buttery and not-too-sweet, these are full of healthy fats and protein from the nuts, and good omega 3’s from the flax meal. They are 100% vegan, no eggs or dairy here, and gluten-free if you use gluten free flour and oats (which I did). You can use any nut butter to make these, really, and add in other additions (like chocolate chips, nuts, seeds, etc) as you see fit. Very nice after school (or work) snack!
