Tempting Vegan Peanut Butter Biscuits

These Vegan Peanut Butter Biscuits are crunchy, flaky, and buttery all at the same time. They are a perfect accompaniment to tea, and every bite provides the perfect balance of nutty and sweet.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 15 cookies


  • ¼ cup oil (coconut, vegetable, Canola, Grapeseed, peanut)
  • ¼ cup vegan butter (I use Kite Hill brand)
  • 1 cup creamy salted peanut butter
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (almond, soy, oat, coconut, cashew, flax, or hemp)
  • 1 handful of salted peanuts for garnish (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, use a hand mixer on low to combine your oil, butter, and peanut butter.
  • Add both sugars and cream together with your mixer until well combined (about 45 seconds).
  • Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix until completely combined. It's okay if it's more sandy than smooth.
  • Beat in vanilla and nondairy milk until smooth.
  • Use clean hands to form 2 tablespoons of dough into a ball and place on a lined baking sheet. Repeat until all the dough is used up, allowing space for cookies to expand while cooking. You should have enough dough to yield about 15 cookies.
  • Use a fork to press a crisscross shape into the top of the cookies and flatten the dough just a little bit. This step is what yields that classic crinkle top.
  • Bake for 15-17 minutes and allow to cool at least 10 minutes before enjoying! Garnish with chopped salted peanuts (optional) for extra salinity and crunch.

Pro Tips

  • If you're not vegan, you can use regular butter and cow's milk and get an awesome cookie, as well.
  • I used coconut milk for the cookies pictured, but I've also made this recipe with almond and oat milk. Just make sure your non-dairy milk is not sweetened. You want to be able to control the sweetness of the cookie, and using sweetened milk adds extra sugar.
  • If you only have chunky peanut butter on hand, that's fine too. You will just have a little extra crunch in your cookies because of the peanuts.
