Vegan Almond Flour Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies blew me away! I knew that it was definitely possible to for a vegan, gluten free cookie without refined sugars to taste great, but I’m so impressed that these are so good with just three ingredients! These cookies come together like a shortbread, like my Brown Sugar Shortbread Cookies, but with a bit more softness. And they’re even easier — just stir together the three ingredients and they’re ready to bake!

Are cookies made with almond flour better for you?

It definitely depends on your nutritional goals, but in general, almond flour is a great source of Vitamin E and magnesium, it’s naturally gluten free, and keto-friendly (see recipe card below for how to make these cookies keto)!

What does almond flour do to cookies?

Almond flour gives these cookies a bit more texture and richness. It also makes a denser dough, so they aren’t as light and fluffy as typical peanut butter cookies. They’re more like shortbread cookies, with the nutty texture of almond flour. SO good!

Equipment

You’ll need some standard cookie tools, like a cookie scoop, parchment paper or a silicone baking liner, and a sheet pan. There’s no need for an electric mixer for this recipe, but I would recommend a wooden spoon to help bring the dough together.

Tips and F.A.Q.

Does almond flour rise like flour?

Almond flour can get a rise to it, if there are leaveners added like baking powder, baking soda or eggs. In these peanut butter cookies, the dough doesn’t rise because the ingredients doesn’t include any leaveners. They’re designed to be super simple to make and to have a more dense, shortbread-like texture.almond flour peanut butter cookies on a plate

Why are peanut butter cookies bad?

Typical peanut butter cookies are pretty high in fat, sugar, and other less-than-healthy ingredients. Which is not to say that they’re not delicious in moderation! But these peanut butter cookies with almond flour and honey are so wholesome — just a few natural ingredients, and they’re vegan and gluten free!

Does almond flour change the texture of cookies?

It does, but for the better! The slightly grainy texture adds a chewy quality to these cookies that is so good! They’re the perfect gluten free cookie!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner.
  • Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl and stir with a wooden spoon to combine.
    2 cups almond flour, ¾ cup creamy peanut butter, ¼ cup maple syrup
  • Use a small cookie scoop to scoop portions and roll them with your hands into dough balls. Place on a lined cookie sheet 2 inches apart.
  • Use a fork to gently press down on each dough ball and create a crisscross pattern. Keep the fork from sticking by dipping it in water after you press each cookie.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 12-14 minutes, or until cookies are golden brown on the bottom. Let cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

Sweetener: I typically use honey for this recipe, but maple syrup works great too and is vegan-friendly! 
Keto Option: You can swap out the maple syrup for a keto maple syrup like this one to make these cookies keto-friendly!
