Chelsy’s blog is packed full of some great gluten free and vegan recipes, and Like Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter and Jelly Cups (GF), Vegan Apple Butter Oatmeal Crisp (GF), and Pan-Seared Pork with Rosemary-Spinach Pesto (GF).
I made some of these cookies in the regular cookie size, you know, a normal size. And then made some huge ones in my muffin top pan. If you don’t have a muffin top pan you need to get one. They are perfect for giant cookies and giant whoopie pies! I think Big Bear is happy about having some of these huge cookies for his lunches this week. *hello jealous co-workers*
They’re perfectly soft, and packed full of peanutbutter.
PS. don’t be intimated by having to make brown butter! It’s super easy, even though I will admit I was a little freaked out when it when from yellow butter to green before turning brown. Freaky Butter. Geez.

After a minute or two the foam with start to dissipate and small brown flecks will start to appear on the bottom of the pan.
Once the butter has reached a light brown color turn the heat off and remove from the heat.
