This healthier version of the classic Peanut Butter Blossoms made with whole wheat flour taste just as delicious as the original!




  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Make sure you have about 23 unwrapped kisses ready to go.
  2. Mix together ground flax and water in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer, cream peanut butter, vegan butter, and sugars until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add the flax egg and vanilla and mix to combine. Add the flour, baking soda and salt and mix until just combined. Roll dough into smooth 1-inch balls (I used a cookie scoop) and place 2 inches apart on baking sheets. No need to flatten.
  5. Bake (one cookie sheet at a time) for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press a chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie. Return to the oven and bake for one more minute. Remove from oven and cool on a cooling rack.


*If using unsalted peanut butter, add 1/4 tsp salt to the recipe.
