20 delicious vegan and gluten-free cookies to bake this holiday season. Perfect for a cookie exchange or to leave out with almond milk for Santa!
Do you have any holiday baking traditions?
Growing up, we made sugar cookies carefully cut into bells, snowflakes, stockings, and angels dusted in red and green sprinkles.
After leaving home, my “go to” cookie became the Peanut Butter Kiss Cookie; infamous in my circle of friends and family for their peanut-buttery base and soft chocolate center.
Last year my girlfriends invited me over to bake Christmas cookies.
It warmed my heart to shuffle around my friend’s kitchen, happy to pass measuring spoons and chocolate chips and vanilla extract.
There’s something about baking together in a warm, sweet smelling kitchen that makes pre-holiday days truly feel like the most wonderful time of the year.
Which leads me to this round up post of my favorite cookies that I *know* both you and Santa will adore.
Bake one of these 20 Vegan & Gluten-Free Holiday Cookies with you and yours this holiday season.
If you can’t be physically together in person, swap these recipes via text, or schedule a virtual bake-date, or bake and personally deliver to doorsteps.
They’re all vegan, gluten-free, and refined-sugar-free with plenty of oil-free and grain-free options.
Happy Christmas and happy baking!!!
