Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies are made with peanut butter, in my case homemade simply peanuts blended into peanut butter, and plant-based milk, with my choice being homemade oatmilk. Feel free to give this a whirl and I guarantee that as long as you don’t let these burn, they will be amazing!

Recipe

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Bake Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yields 24 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup organic cane sugar
  • 6 tbs plant-based milk*
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda**
  • 1 tsp salt

Tools

  • medium-sized mixing bowl
  • baking sheet
  • spoon for mixing
  • oil for greasing baking sheet, parchment or cooking mat

Directions

  • In a medium bowl, add peanut butter and sugar; mixing until creamy. Stir in the plant-based milk and vanilla extract. Add in the flour, baking soda, and salt, mixing to combine. Hand mix, as the process may become tough to stir.
  • Scoop the dough into balls. I found a tbsp measuring spoon to be a good way to do this, but a table spoon should work as well. Place the balls with a few inches of space between and flatten in a crisscross pattern to flatten.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F or around 175 degrees C) for 10-13 minutes (13 minutes seems to be about perfect here). Allow to cool on sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to continue cooling.

Notes

* use your favorite plant-based milk. I used oatmilk myself, as it’s what I primarily make at home with oats and water.
** baking powder will also work, if you don’t have baking soda
