The Best (Vegan) Christmas Cookies

With Christmas just under two weeks away I figured I better get down to business decorating our home and whipping up some Christmas baking!!! This morning I figured I would grab a big cup of coffee and hunker down and find myself some amazing vegan cookie inspiration and ohhhh my goodness … did I do JUST that!!! The trouble is, now I have to decide which one to make first!!

I absolutely LOVE a good sugar cookie and the Minimalist Baker took them to the next level by making them completely vegan and GORGEOUS!!! Plus, they only require one bowl … and take under 45 minutes to make!! Just look at the photo below … drool!!! …

Then I stumbled upon these Vegan Gingerbread cookies on the same site and we all know that Gingerbread is ALWAYS a Christmas staple!!! This Gingerbread batter looks so naughty but trust me, it’s certainly on the nice list as it’s actually LOADED with wholesome gluten-free grains like buckwheat, brown rice, and oat flour…. what?!!!! I’ll take it!!!

I’m always a fan of mixing unique flavours as well and trying new things so when I came across these chocolate chip rosemary cookies I just KNEW I had to give them a try soon … these could end up being a new Christmas baking tradition!! … If this recipe interests you, make sure to watch her video as well not only is it hilarious, but she also refers to these cookies as a “Magical Unicorn combination” and I think I’m going to have to second that!!! …

I have to admit the best part about baking (other than EATING IT ALL) … is the way your house smells in the process … it can’t get any more festive than that!!

Here are a few other recipes I discovered that seriously make my mouth water … check these out to see the details and more importantly, the photos!!!

    They look great… do you do any non vegan baking for Christmas. I always love new recipes but I don’t do the vegan thing:)

    Are you saying won’t eat these because they don’t have eggs or milk? Just curious…
    They’re not harder to make/any less delicious because they’re Vegan :).

    I’ve never met a cookie I didn’t like but Yah I’ve found in my baking my family much prefers cookies with eggs and dairy:). Christmas baking without butter whaaaaaat?!?! Haha. I’m always interested to see what Jillian whips up either way.

This Gingerbread Granola is seriously delicious with its perfect blend of nuts and indulgent spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger, paired with a hint of salt. This festive granola is drool-worthy on its own but even BETTER when served up with homemade creamy maple spiced almond milk. The gingerbread granola and maple spiced almond […]
