Peanut Butter Cookies - Gluten Free, Vegan, & Refined Sugar Free

Peanut Butter Cookies – Gluten Free, Vegan, & Refined Sugar Free

  • Author: Morgan | Just What We Eat
  • Prep Time: 15 min
  • Cook Time: 10 min
  • Total Time: 25 min
  • Yield: 24 1x



  • 1 3/4 cups gluten free all purpose flour (I use “Better Batter“)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, softened ( I use “Earth Balance Soy Free Vegan Buttery Sticks”)
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp dairy free milk of choice (I use “So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk”)
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together gluten free all purpose flour, baking soda, and salt and set aside.
  3. Add remaining ingredients to a stand mixer (or use a hand mixer) and beat together on medium speed.
  4. On low speed, slowly pour in the flour mixture and mix until a dough is formed.
  5. Use a small cookie scoop to create cookie dough balls and place on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper.
  6. Press down gently to flatten cookies out a bit.
  7. Use a fork to gently press down on the cookies twice to make a checkered pattern.
  8. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes.
  9. Allow the cookies to cool a bit and then transfer to a cooking rack to cool completely. The cookies will firm up more during the cool down process.
