Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hi beautiful friends!

I have an AMAZING new recipe for vegan peanut butter chocolate chip cookies that you will all be obsessed with. I can guarantee it will be your go-to cookie recipe from now on. These cookies are made in 1-bowl, they are gluten-free, oil-free and 100% plant-based.

Today is a great day and we have so much to be thankful for! It’s truly the little things that can brighten your whole day.

I honestly can say that the smell of these cookies in my kitchen brought the biggest smile to my face. There’s nothing like baking, then having a little treat to enjoy afterwards.

The first step is preheating your oven, then lining a baking sheet with parchment paper. If you use parchment, you can keep the recipe oil-free! The parchment prevents the cookies from sticking to the baking sheet. Brilliant right?! #oilfreebaking

The rest of the process is simple: in a large baking bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients then stir in the wet ingredients until a dough is formed.

Roll into 1.5 tbsp balls then flatten into cookies. The cookies will double in size! YES!

You won’t have to wait long because these vegan peanut butter chocolate chip cookies only take 10-12 minutes in the oven – total score!

I know I get super impatient when I have something baking in the oven…I hope I am not the only one!

You guys, the 10-minute wait is worth it. I cannot believe how incredible these healthy cookies turned out. They are the perfect combination of moist, chewy, salty and sweet – truly heaven in your mouth.

  1. Can I use almond butter or sunflower butter instead of peanut butter? YES! Definitely!
  2. Can I use any gluten-free all purpose flour?! Yes, I prefer Trader Joe’s brand gluten-free flour, it works really well in all recipes.
  3. How many cookies does this recipe make? The recipe makes 10 cookies but feel free to double it!
  4. What brand chocolate chips do you recommend? I recommend Trader Joe’s dark chocolate chips, Lily’s or Enjoy Life. They are the best and have the cleanest ingredients when it comes to vegan chocolate.
  5. Do they store well in the freezer or fridge? Yes, they should keep well in both. Feel free to make a back-up extra batch to keep in the freezer. Thaw when you are ready to eat them.
  6. Is it okay if I omit the chocolate chips? Sure, they will still be very delicious without the chocolate.

    I made these with my 4 year old daughter and we loved how simple the recipe is. We substituted 1/4 C applesauce for the flax egg and soda water for the baking soda. They turned out delicious! My daughter said, “These are better than ice cream!” Thank you for this wonderful recipe that we will use for years to come.5 stars

    These just came out of the oven and they look and smell absolutely amazing! I know they’re going to be delicious because when I licked the spoon, it was like heaven! This is the first (added) oil and butter free cookie recipe I’ve tried and thanks to you, I will never again make cookies with vegan butter or oil again! This recipe is a total keeper!!5 stars

  4. Therese says:

    These are the best cookies I’ve ever made and they are so simple, easy to make, and pretty much fail safe! I’ll definitely try variations of this by adding/substituting other ingredients like maybe ginger-molasses or walnuts-chocolate chips or even just plain oatmeal-pb. So yummy and totally addictive!5 stars

      Wow I am so happy you loved it!!!

  5. Monica says:

    I don’t normally like the texture or taste of gluten free cookies and cookies are my least favorite bakery dessert…. BUT these are the most delicious cookies I have ever tasted. They were so moist and chewy. I made them for my 3 year grandson who has gluten allergies.
    After my first taste he almost didn’t get any!!! I really had to stop myself. I will definitely put this on my recipe folder. 😋❤️5 stars
