The most delicious and easy Oil-free Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies that are just 7 ingredients, made in 1 bowl, dairy-free and also gluten-free! Ready in about 20 minutes!
It's been quite some time since I shared a cookie recipe. In other words, it was time. I shared a pic of me making these amazing Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies on my Instagram stories and finally sharing that recipe today. I have another peanut butter cookie recipe on the blog that is really popular, 4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies, but that one uses almond flour, so this one is quite different. Therefore, I needed a go-to gluten-free peanut butter cookie recipe.
HOW TO BAKE OIL-FREE COOKIES
Like with all of my recipes, I do not use oil in my cookies or desserts! And you know, you don't need that oil, you need moisture. As long as you have a moisture or fat element, it works the same. Since there is a heavy dose of peanut butter in these cookies, they provide all the richness and moisture we need and are naturally oil-free. It is important that you use a peanut butter with no added oils or sugar. My favorite brand is Simple Truth which I buy from Kroger. They only add a touch of salt.
I love that these cookies are super fudgy and moist with a slightly crispy edge. In other words, perfect.

HOW DO YOU MAKE VEGAN PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES?
First, add your dry ingredients to a large bowl. Secondly, whisk them well.
Next, add the peanut butter, syrup, vanilla and chocolate chips. Stir until a thick batter forms.
Form balls using 2 tablespoons worth of the batter and place about 2 inches apart on the pan, 9 on each pan.
Flatten each cookie with your hands to 1/4 inch thick which should yield them to about 2 inches wide.
Bake for just 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden. Enjoy!
