Peanut Butter Sandwiches

These Peanut Butter Sandwiches are a dream come true for any peanut butter chocolate loving vegan.

They include all the usual suspects: cocoa, agave syrup, coconut oil, almond milk and peanut butter.

I love this recipe because of its simplicity in terms of preparation and ingredients. With almost no dirty dishes to clean afterwards, I had these in the oven in less than 20 minutes after I got started.

And the result is pure perfection. The slight bitterness of the dough perfectly balances out the rich creamy filling. As soon as I took my first bite I thought they tasted exactly like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

Only better for you. As always, these treats are 100 % vegan, low in saturated fat, sodium and calories.
