  • 3/4 cup natural smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (refined for no coconut taste, optional)
  • 1/2 cup vegan white sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegan icing sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, add the peanut butter, oil, white sugar, icing sugar, milk and vanilla. Beat with a mix master or hand mixer until combined. Next, add the salt and beat just until combined.
  3. Add the flour and beat until just combined. Your dough will be sticky and more crumbly than most dough’s but that is normal. Do not overmix or add more milk. There may be some spots of flour still visible and some parts may stick together better than others; wet your hands slightly so they are damp but not dripping and fold the dough together just until there are no more flour spots/clumps.
  4. Using damp hands, pick up 1 to 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball. Place on the baking sheet and repeat until all the dough is used up (about 24 times.) The cookies don’t spread much but you do want to give an inch or two of space so they bake properly.
  5. Press down on each cookie to flatten slightly, but do not thin them out completely. Using the tines of a fork, press down horizontally and cross over that mark vertically. This step is optional, but it looks nice!
  6. Place one tray at a time in the oven and bake for 10 to 13 minutes. Once removed, let them cook on the baking sheet for at least 10 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  7. Serve or store in an airtight container.
