I made these for a guest with allergies to cane sugar, eggs, and dairy.  Everybody else liked them, too.


1⁄2creal maple syrup
1⁄4ccanola oil
1⁄2cchunky peanut butter, natural, no-sugar added
1tpure vanilla extract
1cunbleached flour


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix maple syrup, oil, peanut butter and vanilla in a medium bowl.  Add flour and mix until combined well - do not over-mix.   Drop generous teaspoons of mix onto a greased or parchment-lined cookie sheet.  Press a fork across the top of the cookie to flatten, both directions.

Bake for 20 - 23 minutes.  Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from the cookie sheet.


You may need to add a bit more flour if mixture is not stiff enough to hold together - I made these on a humid day and they need a little extra flour help.
