Grandma’s Easy Dairy-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

  • Author: The Cabin Diary
  • Total Time: 30



    • 1 cup creamy peanut butter (make sure it’s dairy-free and doesn’t contain added sugar)

    • 1 cup granulated sugar

    • 1/4 cup dairy-free milk (such as almond milk, soy milk, or oat milk)

    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    • 1/4 teaspoon salt


    1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with tin foil. Spread non-dairy butter or vegetable oil/spray to the tin foil. If you don’t have tin foil, use parchment paper.

    1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the dairy-free peanut butter, granulated sugar, dairy-free milk, and vanilla extract. Mix until everything is well combined, creating a smooth and creamy mixture.

    1. In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. This will ensure an even distribution of leavening agents and create a balanced texture.

    1. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing well after each addition. Continue until a thick and cohesive cookie dough forms. You’ll love how the aroma of peanut butter fills your kitchen at this point!

    1. Using your hands, roll the dough into small balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet. To add a traditional touch, flatten each ball slightly with a fork, creating a classic criss-cross pattern on top of each cookie. Sprinkle sugar on top for a little something extra!

    1. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for approximately 10-12 minutes, or until the edges turn lightly golden. Be patient as your kitchen fills with the mouthwatering scent of freshly baked cookies.

    1. Once the cookies are out of the oven, allow them to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes. This will help them set before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. The anticipation will be almost unbearable!


Makes up to 20-24 cookies, depending on how large you roll your dough balls.
