Vegan Almond Butter Oatmeal Cookies

I have been making a lot of oatmeal cookies especially with almond butter lately. I think I am craving peanut butter cookies but since P hates peanut butter I don't think that would go over so well. These cookies were super tasty and moist but didn't have the almond butter kick I was looking for...the quest continues. 

 Vegan Almond Butter Oatmeal Cookies
From Alien's Day Out
Makes 24 - 26 cookies

1/3 cup natural, smooth roasted almond butter
1 Tbs non dairy butter
2/3 cup organic sugar
1/3 cup soy milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup chocolate chunks

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the almond butter, non dairy butter, sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until everything is smooth and creamy. 
  3. In another bowl, sift together flour, soda and salt. Add the rolled oats.
  4. Combine the wet with the dry, and mix until just incorporated. Add chocolate chunks
  5. Drop large spoonfuls of cookie dough onto baking sheet and slightly flatten with your fingers.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until set. 
  7. Remove sheet from oven and let cool on tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a cookie rack.


  1. These look delicious! I love making oatmeal cookies. To get more of a kick I it seems you could either add more almond butter or perhaps some crushed up almonds or almond meal? That could be super tasty :)

    1. Ruby - Almond meal is a great idea! I will have to try it next time.

  2. these look sooo goooood! making ASAP
