  • Preheat oven to 350° F and line a half sheet pan with parchment paper (or two smaller baking sheets that fit side by side on the center rack of the oven).
  • Mix the vegan butter, peanut butter and coconut sugar with a wooden spoon until smooth and creamy.
  • Add the almond milk and vanilla extract and mix until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, xanthan gum, baking soda and salt.
  • Sift the flour mixture into the bowl with the wet ingredients, and then add the oats.
  • Fold everything together until just combined.
  • Add the chocolate chips and gently fold again to combine.
  • Using a large cookie scoop, scoop out approximately 3 tablespoons of dough and roll into balls. Arrange the dough balls on the baking sheet(s), leaving enough space between each cookie for them to spread out as they cook.
  • Using the bottom of a glass, press down on the top of each cookie dough ball to flatten it slightly.
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. The cookies will be very soft when fresh out of the oven but will firm up as they cool.
  • Leave the cookies on the baking sheet(s) for about 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.



Cookies taste best when stored in a single layer in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
