Dairy-Free Almond Butter Cookies


Delicious cookies that have the same basic flavor as peanut butter cookies, but can be eaten by people with peanut and milk allergies! I love to make these with my friend because she has a peanut allergy and I have a dairy allergy. They taste great and no one can tell that they are dairy free!

Dairy-Free Almond Butter Cookies

Total Time:
24 mins
4 dozen cookies


  • ½ cup almond butter

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • ½ cup packed brown sugar

  • ¼ cup shortening

  • ¼ cup vegan margarine (such as Earth Balance®)

  • 1 egg

  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon baking powder


  1. Mix almond butter, white and brown sugars, shortening, margarine, and egg in a large bowl. Stir in flour, baking baking soda, and baking powder until dough is combined.

  2. Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Place about 3 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Dip a fork in sugar and use it to flatten cookies in a crisscross pattern.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until light golden brown, 9 to 10 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes; remove from cookie sheets. Cool cookies on a wire rack.

Cook's Notes:

Both smooth and chunky almond butter will work.

I don't usually refrigerate the cookies because I prefer a chewy texture, but if you want a crunchier cookie, refrigerate dough for up to 2 hours before baking.
