Wowbutter Cookies

Nut-free "peanut butter"-esque cookies made with Wowbutter.
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 32 minutes
Servings 24 cookies


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 16 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup Wowbutter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs


  • Whisk the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder together.
  • Use an electric mixer to beat the butter and sugars together in a large bowl until light and fluffy, about 3-6 minutes. This will help create a uniformity to your cookies once they bake. Add the Wowbutter and mix until fully incorporated, about 30 seconds. Add in vanilla and eggs one at a time, beating until combined.
  • Beat in the flour mixture on low until just combined, about 30 seconds. Finish mixing by hand until no floury streak remain.
  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Use a 3 tablespoon scoop to create balls of dough; lay them out on parchment-lined baking sheets about inches apart. Use a fork to create a criss-cross on each cookie. Bake for about 12-14 minutes until edges are golden and centers have puffed and are beginning to deflate. Let cool for 10 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to a rack to cool completely.
