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:)

    • Véronique Clara Chiasson says:

      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 :).

      • Chantelle Bieber says:

        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.

    • Jillian Harris says:

      I’m trying to stick to all Vegan!! You’d be surprised just how tasty Vegan baking can be…you should give one of these a try!! Yummmmmmm!!!! Happy holidays @chantellebieber:disqus!!! XO

  2. Dominique says:

  3. Jgibz says:

  5. Evan says:

    I tried Nutcracker Cookies at home last sunday with my sister. They looks amazing. The taste of nuts in cookies is outstanding.
