Vegan Peanutbutter Chocolate Raisin Cookies

My second cookies with peanutbutter which am started liking few weeks back, before i never tried anything with this delicious butter, i prepared these vegan cookies with raisins easily within few minutes..with vegetables shortening, melted chocolat, applesauce n raisins, this cookies r really fabulous n healthy too..i loved munching them with hot coffee..The health benefit of raisins is that they are an antioxidant. These help to keep the blood clean and flowing.Overall, raisins helps lot for eyesight, oral hygiene and they act as antioxidants. Raisins are sweet and great tasting and promote good health. Raisins are said to beneficial for bone density. The minerals in raisins in conjunction with estrogen in women help make bones stronger and ward off osteoporosis.Dark chocolate is good for your heart. A small bar of it everyday can help keep your heart and cardiovascular system running well.Peanut butter contains fairly high quantities of dietary fiber, amounting to about 8%, which again helps in regulating both blood cholesterol and blood sugar levels.Dietary fiber has also been shown to significantly reduce the risk of colo-rectal cancer..Proteins are present in high amounts, together with very important micro-nutrients such as Vitamin E, Vitamin B3 and large amounts of beneficial minerals such as iron, magnesium, potassium, copper and calcium.

1no Dark Chocolate Bar (250grms)
3tbsp Peanut butter
5tbsp Vegetable shortening
3tbsp Apple sauce
1/2cup Raisins
2cups All purpose flour
1tsp Baking powder
1/4tsp Baking soda
1/2cup Sugar

Cut the dark chocolate bar as small pieces, take a cup of chocolate pieces in a microwave bowl, keep aside the remaining chocolate pieces, add the peanut butter, vegetable shortening to the bowl..heat them for 2 minutes n mix them well with a spatula..

Add the sugar, apple sauce to them n beat them well until the sugar get dissolved, add the baking powder n baking soda to the flour...once the chocolate mix turns soft, add the flour gradually n turn them as soft dough..mix the raisins n remaining chocolate pieces to the dough..

Preheat the oven at 350F..line a baking sheet over a baking tray...drop a scoop of the dough over the baking paper, leave some space between the cookies...bake them for these cookies r made with chocolate, they will be soft once u take off from the oven, let them cool for few minutes before munching them..

Store these delicious cookies in an air tightened box..
