The Best Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt made with gluten-free, grain-free and plant-based ingredients for a simple and easy homemade cookie recipe ready in under 15 minutes!
These cookies are MAGIC. Pure flipping magic you guys.
I have been craving a peanut butter cookie for what feels like months and has yet to find somewhere around here that bakes one that is soft on the inside and a little crispy on the outside – just how I like my peanut buttah cookies. There are somethings that are better off being done in the kitchen and these cookies are one of them.
Allow me to present to you The Best Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt. A mouthful to say and true story my mouth is full of one right now as I am eating dessert and typing about my love affair with these cookies. I had planned to make an entirely different recipe today but when it came time to test, the peanut butter cookie craving started taunting me and I knew what had to be done.
I wanted to make a cookie that was vegan, gluten-free and uses barely any ingredients so that way they are easy enough to bake after dinner when you want something quick and sweet and perfect.
These Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt are made with creamy peanut butter, sweetened with coconut sugar and use tapioca flour as the flour. They are egg-free, dairy-free and grain-free and have no refined sugar (I promise they still taste real good!).
I use my go-to dark chocolate bar from Hu Kitchen and cut it up into pieces as the rich chocolatey addition to the cookie. I love baking with the cashew butter bar because it adds the best flavor when it gets all melty in the oven. I had to practice crazy self control when they came out of the oven because if you remove them from the tray while hot, they will break. Gotta let them cool a bit so they stay together and get that crisp on the outside.
