George Washington Carver created the original peanut butter cookie recipe in 1910. He released a cookbook entitled How to Grow the Peanut and 105 Ways of Preparing it for Human Consumption. The book used to market peanuts, so it contained several types of cookies that used chopped peanuts. However, peanut butter and the characteristic fork marks were not added to the cookies until 20 years later. 
Nevertheless, peanut butter cookies are one of the most popular types of cookies. So we thought we give you a delicious vegan peanut butter cookie that's made with eight keto-friendly ingredients. Almond flour, coconut flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, cinnamon, peanut butter, keto maple syrup, and vanilla extract come together to make the perfect peanut butter cookies. 

How do you make peanut butter cookies without eggs?

Eggs aren't necessarily needed to make peanut butter cookies. Combine peanut butter, keto maple syrup, and vanilla extract, then add almond flour, coconut flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, and cinnamon, and stir to combine. Next, divide the batter into cookies, bake them, and you've got vegan peanut butter cookies.   

Can you substitute coconut oil for butter in peanut butter cookies?

You can use coconut oil instead of butter when making peanut butter cookies. However, coconut oil may give the peanut butter cookies a slightly different texture and a slight coconut flavor.   

Which peanut butters are vegan?

Most peanut butter is vegan. They usually consist of peanuts. However, some peanut butter contains oil and sugars. Occasionally, peanut butter can have honey, so check the ingredient list before to ensure there are no non-vegan ingredients.   

Can I substitute applesauce for eggs in peanut butter cookies?

Applesauce is an excellent substitute for eggs. Use 1/4 cup of applesauce for each egg called for in the recipe.

Preheat your oven to 350 °F. 
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spray it lightly with non-stick cooking spray.   
Place the peanut butter, maple syrup substitute, and vanilla extract into a bowl and whisk it until smooth and combined.   
Add the almond flour, coconut flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, and cinnamon and stir until combined.  . 
Form the peanut butter cookie batter into six balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet, leaving a 1-inch space between each dough ball.   
Lightly spray the back of a fork with non-stick cooking spray. Flatten each ball of cookie dough with the back of a fork to form a cross on top of each cookie.   
Bake the vegan peanut butter cookies for 10-12 minutes until they are slightly golden around the edges.   
Let the peanut butter cookies cool for 5 minutes on the pan. Place the peanut butter cookies onto a wire rack to cool completely before serving.
