  • 1 cup peanut butter creamy
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 350° and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with nonstick spray.
  • In a large bowl, stir the peanut butter, coconut sugar, milk, maple syrup, and vanilla together. Then, add in the flour, baking soda and salt and stir to combine. The mixture should be thick!
  • Use your hands to roll the dough into balls (each ball should be about 2 tablespoon), then place them onto the baking sheet, making sure they're at least 2" apart.
  • Use a fork to make criss-cross marks onto the dough, flattening the cookies out a bit. Bake the cookies for 12 minutes, then remove them from the oven and let them sit on the baking sheet for 1 minute before carefully transferring them onto a cooling rack.
  • Before serving, sprinkle with a little extra sea salt and enjoy!
