Vegan Peanut Butter Cup Blossoms that are truly the most delicious, soft-baked gluten-free peanut butter cookies.

  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 12 mins
  • Total Time: 17 mins

Yield: About 10 cookies 1x


  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter (the more drippy and cream the better)
  • Flax egg (or regular egg)
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free oat flour
  • Dark chocolate peanut butter cups (I used the mini Trader Joe’s ones but look at label if you have specific allergies!)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with If You Care Baking Sheets
  2. Mix together the peanut butter, flax egg, coconut sugar and vanilla extract until combined
  3. Mix in oat flour and baking powder until fully combined and dough is formed
  4. Spoon about 1-2 tablespoons of batter into your hand and roll into a ball then slightly flatten (just a little!) and add to baking sheet
  5. Repeat for remaining dough
  6. Bake in oven for 10-13 minutes (Mine needed 12 minutes
  7. Then 5 minutes after removing from oven, add peanut butter cups on top and allow the cookies to set for 10 minutes
  8. Transfer to a cooling rack if desired and enjoy!
