  5. Scoop one heaping tablespoon onto a non-stick baking sheet and leave a little space between the cookie dough balls, as the cookies will spread and rise while baking.
  6. Bake the cookies for 14-16 minutes, depending on the level of crunchiness that you desire.
  7. If you are using gluten-free flour and whole wheat flour, bake the cookies for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Any non-dairy milk will work for this recipe.

The peanut butter can be substituted for any other nut butter but it needs to be a similar consistency to peanut butter. 

Don’t over-mix the vegan cookie dough because it will activate the gluten and give your gummy cookies. That being said, do not use an electric mixer with this recipe.

If using a gluten-free flour add 5-6 minutes to the baking time.

For crunchier cookies use less milk. If you want softer cookies add a little more milk.
