Peanut Butter Cookies

  • Author: Rae Aflatooni
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 2 DOZEN 1x


Units Scale
  • 3 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon Himalayan salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, add flour, baking soda, maple syrup, peanut butter, coconut oil, almond milk, vanilla extract, sugar and salt.
  3. Using a hand mixer, blend until smooth. Or, if you want an arm workout, hand stir! 
  4. Scoop dough onto cookie sheet. (This vegan cookie dough will pretty much stay in whatever form it’s plopped onto the cookie sheet, so make sure to create round cookie dough balls and flatten them a bit if you want a more uniform “cookie” look.)
  5. Bake for 5 – 7 minutes. 


The coconut oil and the maple syrup will cause the dough to have a shine to it. Don’t worry, it’s just bringing some bling into your kitchen!
