In Honor of World Vegan Month, throughout this month we’ll be sharing with you some of our favorite recipes! The sweet, the savory and all the snacks in between.

With the cold weather right around the corner, nothing beats the winter blues better than a warm cookie. A cookie a day keeps the sadness away! Here are our 5 favorite vegan cookie recipes.

 

1.  Chocolate Cookies:

1 cup of spelt or gluten free flour

60g of ground almonds

1 tsp of baking powder

4 heaped tbs of raw cacao powder

1 tbs of vanilla extract

1/3 cup of coconut oil

1/3 cup date syrup or honey

Directions: mix the flour, baking powder, cacao powder, and ground almonds in a bowl until evenly combined. In a separate bowl make sure the coconut oil is liquid but cooled and mix in the date syrup and vanilla extract until combined. Add the wet mix to the dry and mix well together until you have a nice cookie dough consistency. Take a scoop of the mixture and make little balls with your hands and place on a well greased baking tray. Flatten slightly and bake in the oven on the middle shelf for around 8-10 mins on 160. Keep checking them as they cook fast. Enjoy!❤️?

2.  Maple Sandwich Cookies with Vanilla Creme Filling:

Maple Sandwich Cookies with Vanilla Crème Filling by @vibrancie ? – ⅓ cup maple syrup – ¼ cup raw cashew or almond butter – 1 tsp. vanilla extract – 1 cup oat, buckwheat, spelt, white whole wheat, or all-purpose flour, or more as needed – ½ tsp. baking soda – pinch salt – ½ cup raw cashew butter – ¼ cup organic powdered sugar (or more) – ¼ tsp. vanilla bean powder – 1 ½ tbs. melted cacao butter OR 2 tbs. semisolid coconut oil 1. Warm the maple syrup and nut butter so that it’s easier to mix; add in the vanilla extract and stir until completely smooth. 2. Sift in the flour, baking soda, and salt, and mix with your hands until a smooth dough forms. You want it to be slightly tacky but not sticking to your hands. Add in more flour, if needed. 3. Flour a flat working surface and coat the dough in the flour; roll out to ⅛” thickness and cut into whatever shapes you wish. Arrange in a non-stick baking sheet and bake in an oven preheated to 300 °F for 15 minutes. 4. Remove from oven and cool; meanwhile, make your filling by mixing all the remaining four ingredients together. (If your cashew butter is thin, you might want to add more powdered sugar.) Place about a teaspoon of filling on half of the cooled cookies, and sandwich with another half. Let it sit for a few hours for the filling to set (keep in fridge in the summer); cookies will keep in an airtight container for a couple weeks. Yield will depend on the size of your cookies – I got 36 sandwich cookies. #bestofvegan A photo posted by Best Of Vegan (@bestofvegan) on

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (176 C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 2. In a bowl, thoroughly mix together the coconut oil & brown sugar, then add the almond milk & vanilla. The mixture will be really “liquidy” 3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. 4. Combine the wet & dry ingredients (the mixture will be as thick as cookie dough). Then fold in the chocolate chips and any other mix-ins of your choosing. 5. Roll into tbsp sized balls & place them on the lined baking sheet. Then flatten them out a bit with your palm. 6. Bake for 7-10 minutes until golden brown. #bestofvegan
