Hello & Happy Monday!! 
I realized the other day that out of hundreds of recipes on EDS, I don’t have a staple vegan peanut butter cookie recipe lol. I love to get creative with recipes so I typically gravitate away from the traditional concepts. The being said, I’m taking a moment to deliver the most seamless staples you can think of.. 
and the vegan 3 ingredient flourless Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Almond Flour Cookies were born!! (longest title ever lol)
When it comes to peanut butter, I enjoy it most with chocolate. Alone, it’s just not my cup of tea. Thus creating a chocolate dipped cookie seemed like a no brainer!

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 3 tbsps maple syrup 
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tsps coconut oil  


  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with a piece of parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add all the ingredients: peanut butter, almond meal, and maple syrup. Combine with a spatula until it forms a consistent cookie dough. Divide dough into 6-8 large cookies. 
  3. Place each cookie ball on the prepared cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with your hand palm, then use a fork to flatten more and create a lovely fork print on top of your peanut butter cookies. Those cookies won't expand while baking so no need to leave more than half thumb space between each cookie.
  4. Bake 15 minutes or until sides are golden. Place on a cooling rack. The cookies will be slightly soft, but will firm up on the cooling rack. Allow to completely cool.
  5. Combine the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 1 minute combining after intervals of 15 seconds to prevent burning. Dip the cookies into the chocolate and top with chopped peanuts.  


If you freeze the dough you want to wait till it comes to room temp before baking otherwise the dough will be crumbly.

  1. would it be ok to substitute evoo for the coconut oil. My son doesn't like it and can tell if there is any in anything I fix. :)
    • Hi Lorrie, You can absolute use olive oil if that's your preference. Let me know how they turn out! Happy Baking!
  2. 275 degrees? really ?
    • Lol, yes! You can cook at the standard 350, they may just dry out!
  3. Hi, modified your recipe and used nutella and honey. Baked it slightly longer by 3 minutes. Dipped in choclate Texas glaze and coated with almonds and hazelnuts. Thank you
  4. I could hardly keep the cookie together. did I possibly do something wrong, it’s way too crumbly.
    • Hi Issy, I'm sorry to hear that. I'm not sure what the issue may have been as even a close friend of mine tested these and they came out right. Did you use almond butter?
    • Hi, is it possible to substitute the PB with PB2 powder? Thanks!
      • Hi Joy! You can absolutely combine the PB2 powder with water and substitute it within this recipe. Let me know how they turn out!
    • Mine is crumbly too
  5. Has anyone ever tried this with almond butter instead of peanut?
  6. These are fantastic! I’ve also made variations using hazelnut meal, cashew butter and hazelnut butter and they have all turned out beautifully! I like to add a tiny bit more maple syrup when using hazelnut meal and a pinch of salt. Thanks for a great recipe!
  7. Excellent! Easy recipe with tasty results, thanks for posting this delightful cookie. ?
