Today I’m so excited to be reviewing a brand new e-book, Vegan Peanut Butter Desserts, created by Jenny Dunklee of The Lazy Vegan Baker! When Jenny first approached me about the review, I was totally flattered and instantly in love with her concept (duhhh, peanut butter and dessert. i’m sold).
As soon as I had the book downloaded on my kindle, I sat there debating for a solid 20 minutes over which recipe to try first. Silken Peanut Butter Pie, Pumpkin Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bread, Apple Peanut Butter Crisp— there were just too many mouth-watering options. Plus, the e-book is set up in a very user friendly way, with beautiful photos, clear directions, and tips throughout each page. It can be downloaded on your kindle or iPad, too, which makes it super portable in your kitchen!
I settled on Jenny’s Peanut Butter Coconut Macaroons because I absolutely love coconut (and peanut butter, of course) and I was intrigued since they were also gluten free. This recipe was SUPER simple to throw together and took a grand total of 20 minutes to make (bake time included). Jenny’s directions were extremely clear and easy to follow— which made life that much easier in the kitchen that day.
I decided to drizzle my macaroons with melted dark chocolate, then stick them in the freezer to harden. SUCHHH a good idea. After they hardened, I pulled them out, thawed for a few minutes, then we ate our face off! These macaroons simply melt in your mouth. They’re soft, creamy, perfectly sweet, and have that POP of peanut butter that takes these macaroons to a whole new level. I seriously can’t wait to make them again for my family— seeing as they adore coconut as much as this household does.
If you’re currently thinking, “Where can I get more of this peanut butter goodness???” then head on over to The Lazy Vegan Baker for a copy of her new e-book Vegan Peanut Butter Desserts. I highly recommend this new cookbook and can’t wait to try more of these desserts myself!
But wait— there’s more! Jenny and I are doing a giveaway of her new e-book paired with a jar of Peanut Butter and Co’s new flavor: Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter! Uhhh how perfect is that?! One lucky winner will get a FREE copy of Vegan Peanut Butter Desserts and some incredible peanut butter to spoon-feed while they read 😉
