Peanut butter cookies you'll adore

Delicious, tender peanut butter cookies. Vegan. Do it now, before that time of year when it's just too hot to turn the oven on. 

Ingredients: 
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 Tbs plain soy milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt 
Directions: 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a standing mixer, beat sugars, oils, and peanut butter. Add vanilla and soy milk. Continue to beat until well mixed. 
Mix in flours, baking soda and powder, and salt, until just combined.
The dough will be a bit sandy in texture, but that's ok. Shape it into balls and press to flatten on a cookie sheet into 2" rounds. Or a little bigger, if you like (I like). You'll probably have to "organize" the edges into a round shape since the dough isn't very sticky. 
Bake at 350 for about 12 minutes or until cookies are just slightly browned at the edges. Let them rest on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to cooling rack.
You know what to do from here.
