Everyone loves cookies, but they are often loaded with unhealthy ingredients. These peanut butter cookies are gluten-free, oil-free, and vegan. With simple flourless ingredients and ready in under 30 minutes!

When making these gluten free cookies, you will notice that the batter is pretty thick. And don’t worry, it should be! Vegan cookie dough is often thicker than non-vegan recipes. Also, when you form your batter into cookie, make it the size you want the cookie to be. This gluten free vegan dough does not spread out much when baking.

This recipe makes about 10 2-inch diameter cookies. Place the cookies on a lined baking sheet to prevent them from sticking. I always use a silicone baking mat and it works perfect! You can also use baking paper or oil the pan if you’d like.
