Cookie dough

  • 200 grams (7.05 ounces) roasted peanuts
  • 70 milliliters (0.3 cups) rice milk
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of pink salt
  • Stevia (or any sweetener) to taste


  • Coffee Grinder or Mixer

    Essential for grinding roasted peanuts into a fine flour. Ensure it is clean and dry before using for the best results.

  • Baking Sheet

    Opt for a non-stick variety or line it with parchment paper to prevent cookies from sticking.

  • Wire Rack

    Perfect for cooling the cookies evenly, ensuring they remain crispy. Avoid stacking cookies on the rack to prevent moisture build-up.

  • Wet Fork

    A must-have to create those classic notches on the cookies. Dipping in water helps prevent the dough from sticking to the fork.


Step 1

Preheat your oven to 356°F (180°C).

Step 2

Grind the roasted peanuts in a coffee grinder or mixer until they reach a flour-like consistency. A food processor can also work well for this.

Step 3

In a large bowl, combine the ground peanuts, stevia, pink salt, and baking powder. Mix well. Ensure the dry ingredients are thoroughly combined for even flavor distribution.

Step 4

Gradually add the rice milk to the dry mixture, stirring as you go. Knead the dough until it comes together. You can add nuts, dried fruits, or chocolate drops at this stage for extra flavor and texture.

Step 5

With hands dipped in water, shape the dough into small balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Gently flatten each ball.

Step 6

Use a wet fork to create notches or patterns on top of each cookie. This can also help the cookies bake more evenly.

Step 7

Bake in the preheated oven until the cookies are golden brown, about 10-15 minutes. Baking time can vary, so keep an eye on them to avoid over-baking.

Step 8

Allow the cookies to cool on a wire rack before serving. Cooling helps cookies firm up and achieve the perfect texture.

  • Why did my cookies turn out flat?

    Make sure you used the correct amount of baking powder. Also, improper measurements of wet and dry ingredients can affect the final texture.

  • Can I use a different sweetener?

    Yes, you can substitute stevia with other sweeteners like agave syrup, honey, or even coconut sugar. Just adjust the quantity to match the sweetness level you prefer.

  • Can I freeze the cookie dough?

    Absolutely! Shape the dough into balls, freeze them on a baking sheet, then transfer them to a sealed container. Bake from frozen, adding a few extra minutes to the baking time.

  • Why are my cookies not evenly baked?

    Rotating the baking sheet halfway through the cooking time can help achieve uniform baking. Also, make sure your oven is properly preheated.

  • Can I add mix-ins to the dough?

    Definitely! Nuts, dried fruits, and chocolate drops are excellent additions. Just be sure to fold them in gently to distribute them evenly without overworking the dough.

  • How can I ensure my cookies remain chewy?

    Avoid overbaking and ensure they cool on a wire rack. Storing them in an airtight container can also help maintain their chewy texture.
