  • 3/4 cup natural peanut butter smooth
  • 1/4 cup vegan margarine softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar firmly packed
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-3 tablespoons almond milk


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine peanut butter, margarine, sugars, cornstarch, applesauce, vanilla, and lemon juice until well-incorporated.
  • Add flour, oats, baking powder, and salt to mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
  • Add almond milk one tablespoon at a time until cookie dough is soft, sticks to itself, and is easy to handle.
  • Roll dough into 2-tablespoon-sized balls and place on lined cookie sheet.
  • Use a fork to make characteristic peanut butter cookie stamp on each cookie, being careful not to push too hard and form cracks around the edges.
  • Bake cookies for about 10-11 minutes at 350 degrees. Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet before attempting to move them to a cooling rack.
