These cookies combine the best of everything, from wholesome ingredients like natural peanut butter and rolled oats to sweet, dark chocolate. And, of course, they're dairy-free, so everyone can enjoy!

Makes about 32 cookies

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar (I prefer unrefined cane sugar)
  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 t. vanilla extract
  • 3 T. almond milk or coconut milk, more if neccessary
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup dairy-free dark chocolate chips

How to Make It

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Set aside a large ungreased baking sheet.

2. In a medium large bowl using an electric hand mixer, mix together the peanut butter and sugars until well combined, about 3 minutes (mixture will be difficult to mix at first). Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well. Add the vanilla and almond milk, and beat until smooth. Set aside.

3. In a small mixing bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking soda and oats until well mixed.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet until the mixture comes together into a stiff, yet soft, dough. Fold in the dairy-free dark chocolate chips. Drop the cookies into small mounds onto the cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
