Why You'll Love This Recipe

Soft & Chewy: You will love this recipe for Easy Vegan Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies because they are soft, chewy, just like your classic peanut butter cookies! I add a sprinkle of cane sugar and flaky sea salt on top of these cookies for a delicious sweet and salty treat!

Allergy Friendly: These Easy Vegan Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies are naturally eggless, vegan, and gluten free! If you are just eggless and gluten free, you can substitute the vegan butter for real butter if you’d like. I have made them both ways! And, if you want to substitute for another nut butter you can even use almond butter, cashew butter, or sunflower butter in place of peanut butter.

Nostalgic: This recipe for Easy Vegan Gluten Free Peanut Butter cookies are incredibly nostalgic. They remind me of the melt in your mouth peanut butter cookies I was occasionally allowed to get at the grocery store bakery. But, these soft and chewy plain peanut butter cookies are made without dairy, eggs, and gluten!

How to Make Easy Vegan Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 2

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the butter, cane sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix on low until combined and there are no butter chunks.

Step 3

Add the peanut butter and coconut milk and mix on low until combined.

Step 4

Add the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and fine sea salt and mix on low until combined.

Step 5

Using your hands, from the dough into 20 balls and place on the prepared baking sheets. Flatten them slightly so they are about 1 ½ to 2-inches in diameter.

Step 6

Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until the tops looked cracked and set. Sprinkle with cane sugar and flaky sea salt immediately after coming out of the oven. Allow to cool completely on the baking sheets. (If you're baking at high altitude, be sure to check the Notes at the bottom of the recipe for high altitude baking instructions).

Easy Substitutions

  • Use vegetable shortening in place of vegan butter if you prefer (I've tested both ways).
  • Replace the vegan butter with butter if you are not vegan. (I've tested this and they're also delish!).
  • Make Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies by adding in 198 grams (1 cup) chocolate chips.
  • Sprinkle with flaky sea salt after coming out of the oven for a sweet and salty cookie.
  • Place a piece of dark chocolate in the center before baking to make Vegan Gluten Free Peanut Butter Blossoms.

FAQ's

Can I use butter?

Yes, if you are not vegan and want to just make gluten free and eggless peanut butter cookies, then you can replace the vegan butter with butter!

Can I use another kind of nut butter?

Yes, this cookie recipe will with almond butter or cashew butter too!

How should I store homemade peanut butter cookies?

These cookies are soft and chewy, so they need to be sotred in an airtight container. You can use a tupperware, cake dome, or even a zip bag if that's all you have!
