With only six ingredients and about 15 minutes to whip up, these heathy peanut butter blossoms are an easy addition to your holiday cookie tray! Vegan and gluten-free. 


  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon ground flaxseed + 3 Tablespoons water*
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Vegan chocolate chunks (I used Enjoy Life)


  1. Preheat oven: Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Make flaxseed egg: Mix together the ground flaxseed with the water to make your flaxseed egg and set aside.
  3. Mix ingredients: In a medium bowl, mix the peanut butter, sugar, flaxseed egg, vanilla and baking soda until well combined.
  4. Scoop: Scoop 1 Tablespoon of the cookie dough, roll into a ball and set about 1 inch apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
  5. Bake: Bake for 9-10 minutes. Remove from oven, and immediately press a chocolate chunk into each cookie. Allow to cool completely; the chunk will harden as it cools.
  6. Store: Store in an airtight container on the counter for 3-4 days or in the fridge or freezer for longer storage.


  • If you don’t need the cookies to be vegan, you can use a regular egg instead of a flaxseed egg!
