5 ingredient, grain-free peanut butter cookies

5 ingredient, grain-free peanut butter cookies.
I’m all about the grains, but not all of us are- so this recipe is for you! It is amazing what you can do with a little bit of versatile peanut butter and not much else.
5-ingredient, grain-free, refined-sugar free, fabulously PB cookies! The choc chips are an optional addition (I opted for yes), and so is sandwiching them together with nicecream! They’re a super easy cookie to throw together without the fancy toppings, however if you have a tub of vegan ice-cream handy its a fun way to sandwich them together.

1 cup smooth peanut butter (pot for one with only peanuts and salt in the ingredients).
1/3 cup pure maple syrup.
2 tsp pure vanilla extract.
1/3 cup tapioca flour.
1 tsp baking powder.
Optional- 100g vegan choc chips, or 1 cup peanuts.


1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line a baking tray and set aside.
2. Combine PB, maple and vanilla in a large bowl. Mix well. Add tapioca and baking powder. Mix together. If using choc chips, incorporate.
3. Roll dough into balls (mine were 55gm each, approx 2.5 Tbsp). Place on lined tray, and flatten down with hands.
4. Bake for 7-9 mins, or until beginning to colour (but try not to over cook, or they will be dry!). Cool on a wire rack.
5. Serve as is, or dipped into chocolate, squeezed together with your fav vegan ice cream, or dunked into coffee.

  1. Thanks for the cookie recipe. Would love to try it. Do you think the tapioca flour can be replaced by rice flour

    1. Hmm, I’m not sure. I think the recipe would still work, but there will be a compromise in texture. Tapioca helps to create a crunchy crust and chewy middle, but let me know if you try it
