How To Make 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies With No Eggs
It’s as easy as 3 ingredients to make the most delicious crunchy peanut butter cookies!
In fact, all you need to make them is the following:
- Salted Peanut Butter – You can also use unsalted peanut butter, but I love the touch of salt in this recipe. Make sure you use fresh natural peanut butter with no added oil and no added sugar for best results.
- Homemade Oat flour – I use gluten-free certified rolled oat that I pulse into flour in my blender. The recipe works really well with spelt flour, all-purpose flour, or gluten-free flour.
- Maple Syrup – Other healthy refined sugar-free sweetener options are coconut nectar, apple syrup, brown rice syrup, or agave syrup.
Storing 3-Ingredient Vegan Cookies
Great news, these cookies store for up to 2 weeks in a cookie jar!
That’s the great side of vegan baking. Indeed, vegan peanut butter cookies have no eggs, no milk, or butter.
Therefore they store very well at room temperature. Their texture and taste remain intact and delicious.
I recommend a sealed glass cookie to enjoy the full flavor and crunchy texture for longer.
You can also freeze the cookies in an airtight container or zip-lock bag and leave them in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Thaw them overnight at room temperature.
There are many ways to make these simple cookies fit most dietary restrictions. Here are some:
- Peanut-Free – You can make these cookies without peanut butter. You can use almond butter instead.
- Maple-Free – Maple syrup can be replaced with coconut nectar, rice malt syrup, or sugar-free maple syrup.
- Gluten-Free – As long as your oat flour is made with certified gluten-free oats, this recipe is gluten-free. If you can’t tolerate oats, you can use almond flour instead with a teaspoon of guar gum.
