Peanut Butter Snickerdoodle Ingredients

  • Peanut Butter- make sure you are using a natural peanut butter for this recipe. That means no added oil. The ingredients should read just roasted peanuts or peanuts and salt.
  • Coconut Sugar- any kind of granulated sugar will work here. Cane sugar or brown sugar are good substitutes if you’re not a fan of coconut sugar.
  • Plant Milk- any kind of plant milk will work here too. I haven’t tested these with dairy milk so I can’t say if that would change the results, although it shouldn’t.
  • Vanilla Extract- just a teaspoon of vanilla to enhance the flavor.
  • Almond Flour- superfine almond flour (not almond meal) is key for the best texture. I haven’t tested these with substitutions so if you can’t have almond flour it might be best to look for a different PB cookie recipe.
  • Oat Flour- oat flour is typically easier to sub and all-purpose flour tends to work best in its place. Whole wheat pastry flour might also work although it might dry the cookies out a bit.
  • Baking Soda- we use baking soda for leavening. If you don’t have baking soda you could probably get away with baking powder instead.
  • Salt- I like to add a pinch of salt even with salted peanut butter but if you’re sensitive to salt then I would omit it altogether unless your peanut butter is unsalted.

Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time30 mins
Servings: 18 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup peanut butter, ingredients should just be peanuts and salt (can be unsalted)
  • ½ cup coconut sugar, can also use cane sugar or brown sugar
  • ¼ cup plant milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ½ cup oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼-½ sea salt, exclude if peanut butter is salted
  • cup cane sugar
  • teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the peanut butter, coconut sugar, milk and vanilla extract.
  • To the same bowl, add the almond flour, oat flour, baking soda, and salt (if using). Fold everything together until evenly combined and a dough begins to form.
  • Scooping out about 1½ tablespoons at a time, use your hands to roll each scoop into balls.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the cane sugar and ground cinnamon. Roll each ball in the cinnamon mixture until evenly coated. Transfer to the baking sheet.
  • Using a fork, press down on each ball in a criss-cross fashion. The cookies won't spread much on their own so be sure to press them down to roughly ½-inch thick.
  • Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool completely then enjoy! Leftovers can be stored in airtight container for up to 5 days, or frozen for up to 3 months.
