Ingredients for Peanut Butter Almond Flour Cookies

These peanut butter cookies with almond flour call for mainly pantry staples. For this recipe you will need:

  • peanut butter- we used traditional creamy peanut butter but natural peanut butter should work as well.
  • sugar- granulated sugar was tested but I think brown sugar would work as well.
  • egg
  • almond flour- get the super fine almond flour made for baking. Do not use almond meal.
  • vanilla extract
  • baking powder
  • salt

Aside from these ingredients you will need a medium or large mixing bowl, measuring cups and spoons, spatula, parchment paper and baking sheet.

How to Make Peanut Butter Almond Flour Cookies

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. If you don’t have parchment paper use a non-stick pan (do not spray with non-stick spray).

In a medium-sized mixing bowl combine the peanut butter, sugar and egg and stir well to combine. Add the remaining ingredients: almond flour, vanilla extract, baking powder and salt. Stir well to combine all ingredients together.

Divide cookie dough into 12 cookies and roll into balls. Place on the baking sheet and use the back of a fork to make the cross pattern. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-10 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are these cookies dairy free?

Yes! There is no dairy in these cookies if you make the recipe as written. Almond flour peanut butter cookies are the perfect dairy free recipe with no butter or milk added.

Are these cookies gluten free?

Yes! Almond flour is the gluten free flour alternative used to make these peanut butter cookies gluten free.

How should almond flour be stored?

Once opened almond flour should be stored in the refrigerator. Almond flour is made from ground almonds so when kept at room temperature it can go bad just like almonds would over time. Keeping it in the refrigerator will extend its shelf life.

Can I add anything to this recipe?

Sure, make some peanut butter chocolate chip cookies by adding some chocolate chips. Chopped peanuts will make a great addition as well. Be sure not to add too many so the cookie dough stays together.

Can I substitute the peanut butter from almond butter?

I have not tested this substitution but I do think it would work. If you try it let us know in the comments!
