Fluffy Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

Dairy-Free Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t already had 3 of these delicious dairy-free, fluffy peanut butter cookies today… They’re beyond easy to make & were adapted from a recipe that was my Grandma’s! I made some healthier swaps such as applesauce instead of butter & dairy-free yogurt instead of milk. Trust me when I say, you won’t even know the difference! I also added a piece of a dairy-free chocolate bar to the top of each cookie because every cookie needs a little chocolate in my opinion.
