Milk is anyway not there in this recipe. Peanut-butter is not a dairy product, but it is made from peanuts grounded to a smooth paste with a little bit of salt. You can also use Cashew/Almond butter, Coconut oil, Olive oil.
If you're baking, then substitute butter with any of the above mentioned alternatives. In addition you can use these alternatives too - Apple sauce, Flaxseed, Yogurt.

Hi Izaan. Yes, dairy production causes tremendous suffering to cows and calves. Male baby calves are killed at birth so that we can steal the milk meant for them. Really appreciate your compassion! Going vegan is a great idea, I'm a vegan and so are several others in India. We live a very healthy & happy life without using any dairy or other animal products. Please join the group "Vegans in India" on Facebook. You will find many like minded people there who guide you on your path. Also there are several resources available online on veganism, you can search for more information, recipes, etc.
Veganism is the way to go! Ditch dairy, it's unspeakably cruel.
