Below you'll find a curated collection of scrumptious vegan and gluten-free cookie recipes from the blog archives (all refined sugar-free as well, naturally). These recipes, besides being some of my personal favorites, are all reader tried, tested, and heartily approved.
Cookies are a big favorite with me when it comes to desserts – fuss-free, super quick to throw together, and absolutely delicious, and here you’ll find a variety of cookies perfect for the holiday season, but also of course (and perhaps more importantly) for day-to-day munching.
I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as I do!
Before we get to them, just a quick note: if you find this type of recipe browsing a wee bit tedious — I know opening up a thousand browser pages isn’t typically my idea of fun either… — you can get these recipes in one beautifully collated (and ad-free!) PDF ebook below. Your purchase of the Cookies collection ebook will also help to support this blog, so it’s a win-win all around ;)
Oh, and if you're looking for Christmas desserts other than cookies, you'll find heaps of them here.
And now, to cookies...
The recipe for these delicious and festive almond crescent cookies comes together in a snap and is a real winner around here at the holiday table. It’s a little different to traditional moon cookies, but wholesome and lovely in its own way.
Delicious classic Mexican Wedding Cookies (aka Russian Tea Cookies) remade vegan and gluten-free. These little cookies are sweet, soft and crumbly, a little shortbread-like, and filled with pecans.
Soft and chewy pecan cookies topped with a crisp toasted pecan for good measure. I absolutely love these freshly baked and warm.
Linzer cookies are a such a holiday classic, and for a reason – it’s hard not to love a delicious crunchy cookie sandwiching a beautiful layer of jam!
These lovely oatmeal raisin cookies are so chewy, sweet, and comforting, and make a great breakfast cookie or a delicious cozy little treat.
Deliciously soft and chewy, and super flavorful hazelnut cookies. You can make them into simple fork print cookies or cutout cookies, depending on your preference.
These crispy grain-free biscotti cookies are lovely with dried cherries or dried cranberries, and are absolutely amazing with a cup of tea or coffee.
These cookies are a perfect chocolate peppermint fix – double the chocolate, double the fun!
Chocolate cookies? Vanilla tea biscuits? Why not have both with pinwheel cookies!
A few additional cookie options (not included in the Cookies collection ebook) in case you need even more inspiration :)
If you're interested in even more cookies, some of my very favorites you can find exclusively in my book Unconventional Treats.
Merry Christmas & Happy Baking!
