Dairy free peanut butter cookie ingredients:
- Creamy peanut butter-Make sure that it is the creamy kind and not the chunky kind! I like the Trader Joe’s brand.
- Maple syrup-To add some sweetness!
- Coconut sugar-I love this maple syrup and coconut sugar combo to add a layer of sweet.
- Egg-To bind everything together.
- Baking soda-To help the cookies rise.
- Vanilla-For flavor.
- Chocolate chunk-I like the enjoy life brand. They are allergy friendly.
How to make flourless peanut butter cookies:
- First, preheat the oven to 350.
- Place all ingredients in a bowl and whisk together until smooth.
- Lay wax paper done on a baking sheet, using a 1.5 tbsp cookie scoop, scoop the dough on the baking sheet.
- Now, smash the cookies and use a fork to make cross hatches on top.
- Add an optional chocolate chunk on top.
- Bake for 10 minutes.
Can I substitute almond butter in these gf peanut butter cookies?
- Absolutely! You can substitute almond butter. Keep in mind, almond butter has a different taste than peanut butter so the flavor profile will taste a bit 🙂
What kind of baking sheet do you suggest?
How can I store these dairy free cookies?
- I suggest storing them in the fridge or you can freeze them! To freeze them, separate each layer of cookie by the wax paper. Make sure to store them in an airtight container.
