Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 15 minutes | Total time: 25 minutes | Yield: 20-24 cookies
1 cup natural peanut butter creamy or crunchy (or almond butter)
1 cup coconut sugar or pure cane sugar
6 tablespoons almond milk, room temp
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup flour: unbleached all-purpose, almond flour, or 1-1 gluten-free blend
1 teaspoon baking soda
Generous pinch of mineral salt (only use if nut butter is unsalted)
1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with silicone mat, parchment paper or leave ungreased.
2) Make the dough: In a large bowl, add the peanut butter and sugar and mix until creamy. Stir in the almond milk and vanilla. Next, add the flour, baking soda, and salt, mix to combine. The dough will be tough to stir, using your hands to mix it together will be easier.
3) Roll and flatten: Using a 1.5 tablespoon scooper, scoop out the dough and roll into balls, about 1 1/4 inch. Place the balls of dough about 2 1/2 inches apart on a baking sheet. Using the back of a fork, flatten in a crisscross pattern. Optionally, sprinkle with sugar or coarse salt.
4) Bake: Place in the oven and bake for 10 – 13 minutes (13 minutes will yield a crispier cookie that’s tender inside). Let cool a few minutes, transfer cookies to wire rack and repeat with remaining dough
