  • 180 g Gluten-Free Self-Raising Flour (I use Doves)
  • 125 g Vegan Butter
  • 125 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 3 tbsp Aquafaba
  • 125 g Nut Butter of Choice (I like crunchy peanut)
  • 1 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 pinch Salt


  • Grease and line a large baking tray with baking paper
  • Pre-heat the oven to 160°C fan (180°C conventional)
  • Sieve the flour into a bowl
  • Beat together the sugar and butter until the mix is light and fluffy
  • Gradually beat in the aquafaba, maple syrup, nut butter and vanilla extract (don't worry if the mix starts to curdle slightly, it should un-curdle as soon as more dry ingredients are mixed in later)
  • Mix in with the flour and pinch of salt
  • Using a spoon (or ice cream scoop) make 12 balls out of the mix
  • Put the balls onto a tray, evenly spread out, and flatten them slightly with the back of a fork
  • Bake the cookies for approx. 18 minutes, until they are browned and slightly golden
  • Leave them to cool slightly on the tray and then place them on a wire rack to finish cooling
  • Store at room temperature in a cake tin or tupperware
