The Best Gluten free + Dairy free Peanut butter cookies {Soft, Crisp, GF, DF}

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

Today’s recipe is a classic. Just like chocolate chip cookies and oatmeal raisin cookies, peanut butter cookies are a classic cookie that is one of my favorites! For starters they are the easiest cookie to make, require the bare minimum of ingredients yet they taste AMAZING! They are definitely one of my favorites which is why I just had to come up with my own recipe!

When making these cookies I wanted to keep the amount of ingredients needed low so they were easy to make and contained ingredients most of us having lying in our cupboards. Second, I wanted to keep them dairy free because many people (me included) like to avoid dairy for a variety of reasons. Lastly, since I am gluten free these cookies will of course contain no gluten or wheat ingredients.

When cooking them I always air on the side of softer rather than crispy because that’s the way I prefer my cookies but if you like yours the other way then simply keep them in the oven for longer.

Cooking Tip: Since these cookies are so soft you HAVE TO let them sit for 5 minutes after coming out of the oven or else they will fall apart. Trust me, the wait will be worth it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Vegan Tip: If you are looking to make these cookies vegan than replace the egg with your favorite alternative. For some of my favorites vegan egg alternatives visit my 6 important tips for the vegan cook or baker post here.
