When life gives you subpar peanut butter, make peanut butter cookies! My roommate and I both favor natural peanut butter- just peanuts and salt ground up into oily, gritty, smoky, savory yumminess. She accidentally picked up a peanut butter with oil and sugar whipped in for a smooth texture. Perfect cookie making opportunity! Also, baking is optional with vegan cookies. Thanks to Chocolate Covered Katie’s Peanut Butter Secrets for the inspiration. -Amanda
