  • 2 mixing bowls
  • Wooden spoon
  • Sieve
  • Baking sheet
  • Glass for flattening
  • Wire rack



  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Add vegan butter, peanut butter, and brown sugar to a large mixing bowl. Beat with a wooden spoon until smooth and creamy.
  • Pour in the almond milk and vanilla extract. Beat to combine.
  • In another mixing bowl, whisk the flour, xanthan gum, baking soda, and salt together until well combined. Sieve the flour mixture into the bowl with wet ingredients.
  • Fold everything together until just combined. Add chocolate chips, and fold again to combine.
  • Roll the cookie dough into balls and place on lined baking sheets. Leave room for spreading.
  • Using the bottom of a glass, gently push each cookie ball to flatten it slightly. Cookies will spread more during baking.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until edges are firm. Leave cookies on the baking sheet to cool for 5 to 10 minutes before moving them to a wire rack.



  • Optional: When the cookies are fresh out of the oven, put a few extra chocolate chips onto the top of each cookie for decoration.
  • Optional: Sprinkle cookies with flaky sea salt before serving.
