We put together a list of six delicious holiday cookie recipes that are vegan-friendly and perfect for any cookie exchange. From a twist on the classic sugar cookie, to our very own Charcoal Chocolate Chunk Cookies (FYI -- these can be made to look like lumps of coal for a fun holiday theme!), we’ve got you covered for a creative and delicious holiday season.
1. Vegan Cinnamon Chai Cookies
These cookies pack in the coziest fresh baked vibes while also providing lots of protein (these babies are made with almond butter and almond flour!), making them the perfect no-guilt treat. Sweetly spiced, yet healthy and clean -- just our kind of treat!
2. Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
Thick and chewy, with crispy edges -- these decadent cookies by Baker by Nature are a vegan staple this holiday season!
3. 1-Bowl Vegan Sugar Cookies
This cookie-cutter-friendly recipe by Minimalist Baker comes together in one bowl, for an easy baking process and clean-up!
4. Charcoal Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Talk about a dark chocolate detox! These are made with Charcoal Chia gr8nola which contains activated charcoal, a powerful detoxifier that can help flush heavy metals from your system. It also gives these cookies a beautiful dark hue but doesn’t leave any strange aftertaste because activated charcoal is both odorless and tasteless.
5. Small-Batch Vegan Shortbread Cookies
Four ingredients, and the perfect crunchy texture -- this small-batch recipe by Loving It Vegan is delicious with tea, coffee, hot chocolate, or as dessert!
6. No-Bake Oreo Cookie Cups
We love the rich, decadent color and all the nutritional benefits that activated charcoal adds to these yummy cookies. Best of all? These only take a few minutes to make!
