So, I dipped these madeleines in chocolate and sprinkled some peanuts on top for a nice decorative touch, since it’s Christmas time right now! But feel free to leave the chocolate out if you want to.

It will be just as delicious without the chocolate.

Tips on how to make Vegan Peanut Butter Madeleines

  • Use cake flour, because it will help the madeleines have a soft and fluffy texture.
  • Don’t over bake the madeleines. As soon as they start browning, remove the tray from the oven.
  • Preferably eat them on the same day. However, they will still be delicious on the second day, just not as fresh.
  • You can substitute the peanut butter for some more vegan butter, or any other kind of nut butter.
  • This recipe is very adaptable. If you substitute the peanut butter for vegan butter, you can also add other flavorings to the batter such as citrus zest, extracts, chocolate chips.
  • You can substitute the aquafaba (liquid from a chickpea can) for 1/2 flax egg.
  • Don’t use too much grease on the madeleine pan, too much grease will make your madeleines porous.

This is the madeleine pan I am using. I have two of them so I can bake the whole batch at once.

But if you only have one pan, bake the first batch, meanwhile leave the madeleine batter covered in the fridge.

Then, remove the baked madeleines from the oven, wait 5 minutes and remove them from the pan. Lightly grease the madeleine tray again, and bake the second batch.

Vegan Peanut Butter Madeleines
  • 1 cup cake flour 4.5 oz, 127 grams
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar 2.3 oz, 66 grams
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoons aquafaba or 1/2 flax egg*
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the top
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips 3 oz, 85 grams
  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts


  • Lightly grease a Madeleine pan with butter or spray oil.
  • Pre-heat oven to 350ºF.
  • Sift cake flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • Melt vegan butter and peanut butter together in the microwave.
  • Add brown sugar. Whisk to combine.
  • Add milk, lemon juice, aquafaba, and vanilla.
  • Whisk until smooth.
  • Add sifted dry ingredients to the bowl.
  • Stir with a spatula to combine.
  • Divide the Madeleine mixture between the cavities of the pan. You should fill each cavity about 1/2 of the way.
  • I was able to obtain 20 madeleines with the pan I used.
  • Bake in pre-heated oven for about 20 minutes, until madeleines are golden in the edges, puffed up, and you touch the middle of one, and it springs right back.
  • Remove from the oven and let it cool all the way.
For the top
  • Melt chocolate in the microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring in between until completely smooth and melted.
  • Dip each Madeleine tip in the melted chocolate.
  • Place it on a baking sheet and sprinkle some chopped peanuts on top.
  • These Madeleines are best if eaten on the same day, but they will be fine on the next day also, just less fluffy.
  • Store them in an air tight container for up to 2 days.


*Flax Egg: to make 1/2 flax egg, mix 1/2 tablespoon flax seeds with 1 tablespoon of warm water, and let it sit for 5 minutes to thicken.

  1. Hey

    Thanks for sharing this. Are you using whipped aquafaba or liquid? I’ve been meaning to try is in a recipe but haven’t gotten around to it

    1. Just the liquid, I don’t whip it. Some people whip it slightly. I just never do, I’ll try whipping sometime to see if there’s a big difference.

    This was a great recipe to make when my kids and I were learning about France! The only thing is 20 minutes seemed too long for the bake time. Ours were done in about 10 minutes. I thought it might be a difference in the well size of the pans, but we made 20 from one batch as well. Maybe it’s because we didn’t use peanut butter but instead used 2 extra tbsp butter? Either way, delicious!!!

    1. yes the time baking can vary for lots of reasons, how hot your oven runs, and the size pans etc. But I am so glad you liked it!!! and so fun to learn about France 🙂
