Vegan Oatmeal Coffee Cookies

I was craving some cookies and decided to try my hand at vegan cookies. Several recipes on the internet suggested that oatmeal peanut butter cookies would be an easy and satsifying dessert.

I kept it very simple. Just a few ingredients. But it turned out really delicious.

1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tsps vanilla extract
1/2 cup maple syrup
3 tbls peanut butter
1 tsp ground coffee
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp sea salt

Bring maple syrup, peanut butter, salt and coffee to a soft boil. Stir in oats, cinnamon and vanilla.

Continue stirring while cooking over low heat until mixture thickens and adheres to itself, but is still easy to stir. About 2 minutes.

Spoon in 2 inch balls onto a greased cookie sheet.

Chill in the fridge for 15 minutes.

Bake at 400 F for 10 minutes.

Let cool at least 15 minutes.

These start out crunchy and chewy. If you seal them in an airtight constainer they turn softer and chewier when left on the counter overnight.
