Peanut Butter Minus Cookies

Made with the simplest of ingredients, these peanut butter cookies from Victoria Moran’s newest book Main Street Vegan: Everything You Need to Know to Eat Healthfully and Live Compassionately in the Real World (Tarcher Penguin, April 2012) are minus gluten, eggs, butter, baking soda, baking powder, and any oil that isn’t naturally occurring in the peanut butter. Moran credits this recipe to Chicago Tribune columnist Kay Stepkin, owner of the Windy City’s legendary bakery and grocer The Bread Shop.
