Chocolate Peanut Butter Hamantaschen

Last week I posted my gluten-free, vegan version of the traditional Purim dessert, hamantaschen. I’m delighted to say that the recipe has been a huge hit- even my mom sent me  a photo of the batch she made! Unfortunately, yesterday I noticed that the cookie jar was already empty…and Purim was still two days away. I decided to make another batch, this time venturing away from the traditional fruit-filling. Introducing…Chocolate Peanut Butter Hamantaschen!

You may notice that these cookies are a little on the crumbly side in the photos. That’s because after I started mixing ingredients I realized that I didn’t have quite enough all-purpose flour, so I ended up substituting a little coconut flour.  If you follow the recipe as-is your hamantaschen should be much prettier than mine!
