A Baker’s Dozen of Vegan Christmas Cookies!


Vegan Chocolate Sugar Cookies

I said I wasn’t going to post any more sugary recipes, but it’s the holidays. We all allow ourselves a few indulgences at this time of year. So I’m taking a guilty break until Christmas and then it’s back to the healthy routine. I will note that several of the cookie recipes I’m sharing are at least healthier than typical recipes and of course they’re all vegan. There’s a gluten-free recipe here too!

A Baker’s Dozen of Vegan Christmas Cookies!

1. Coconut-Lemon Meltaways by Addicted to Veggies

My good blogger buddy, Poppy, told me about this recipe and the photo alone made me melt. These cookies are a raw, healthy-ish and super easy to make.

2. Christmas Light Cookies by Fork & Beans

These Christmas Light Cookies are so festive that they’ll even cheer up your neighborhood Scrooge.

3. Magical Coconut Bars by Post Punk Kitchen

If you’ve got someone on your list who will only be satisfied by something exceptionally rich, then they’ll love Isa Chandra’s Magical Coconut Bars.

4. Vegan Christmas Sugar Cookies by Smiling Green Mom

Get in the holiday spirit with these lovely cruelty free Christmas Sugar Cookies. I’d certainly be happy if someone baked me some of these for Christmas!

5. Millionaires’ Shortbread by Lucy’s Friendly Foods

Lucy of Lucy’s Friendly Foods is a Cordon Bleu trained chef, a vegetarian and a mom of kiddos with allergies. I’m continually inspired by her posts like her Millionaires’ Shortbread.

6. Molasses Ginger Cookies by Healthy. Happy. Life.

Kathy from Healthy. Happy. Life. says “you can taste the bold, dark molasses flavor mingling with the warm tones of ginger and cinnamon spice” in her Molasses Ginger Cookies. She’s got me sold!

7. Popcorn, White Chocolate & Cranberry Cookies with Butterscotch Drizzle from Vegan Adventures

Popcorn in cookies is weird, but good weird! Andrea from Vegan Adventures says “These cookies are like Christmas all wrapped up into one fluffy pillow of goodness.” I agree!

8. Apple Pie and Eggnog Cookies by Made Just Right

I’ve never liked eggnog, but a vegan eggnog, apple pie and cookie mash-up sounds delicious! I’ve got to try these!

9. Chocolate Chip Cookies from Janie’s Kitchen

As much as I love traditional Christmas goodies, chocolate chip cookies are still my favorite. Here’s a great recipe! I will note that these call for honey, but this can be replaced with brown rice syrup.

10. Nutty Chocolate Biscotti by Simply Vegetarian 777

Since my husband’s Italian and I’m half Italian, there’s always biscotti at holiday gatherings. Sonal’s Nutty Chocolate Biscotti look amazing. Chocolate and nuts are great additions to almost anything!

11. Dark Chocolate and Coconut Bliss Balls by Georgia Kate’s Kitchen

According to Georgia Kate, these are “Ferrero Rocher mixed with Nutella in a snack-sized ball. Minus the dairy and sugar.” I say these wholesome bliss balls are the perfect gift for a health conscious friend.

12. Gluten Free Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies by Hope for Healing

There’s got to be someone on a gluten-free diet on your list. Make him or her happy with these amazing Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies.

    Those magic coconut bars look exactly the same as my mom’s “magic bars” that have been my favorite holiday treat since childhood! They called for evaporated milk, so I was trying to figure out how to veganize them. Now I can start from here. You can’t go wrong with an Isa Chandra Moscowitz recipe!

  4. Thanks for this post Celeste..absolutely gorgeous and delish recipes.. Am gonna try some here, especially the lemon one and the chocolate truffle one πŸ™‚

  5. I am salivating over all of these Celeste! YUM. – Shanna

  9. Oh yum! They look fantastic!

  10. neetukushi says:

    They are beautiful! I haven’t had dinner yet and I could easily polish off a plate of those!

  11. sophiazerg says:

    I’m on a no-sugar kick as well – but I’m super glad you posted this because I have one week to figure out what I’m baking as Secret Santa. πŸ˜‰ I have goodies to prepare, and these look great.
    Thanks, Celeste. πŸ™‚

  12. So many cookies, so little time!

  13. I make those molasses ginger cookies ALL THE TIME. Those exact ones! They are tried and true around here, and friends like them too. I look forward to trying the others! Don’t stop with the sugar, Sugar!

    I’ve made the coconut bars a few times (I have their baking books) and they are soooooo good. I made them gluten-free and sold them to raise money for the Vegan Society and they went fast. These other recipes look delish; must bookmark!

    • I think the coconut bars are the most decadent treats on this list and that’s why I’m afraid to make them!!! πŸ™‚ By the way, did you get my “accidental” several emails about doing a post on your company? My email was really funky the day that I wrote you and I believe I sent you like 4 emails. But, it’s possible that none of them went through at all with the way it was acting. If you didn’t get an email from me, let me know!

      • mllaurie says:

        Nope, I got it, and it was only one! πŸ™‚ I’ve replied, so hopefully it’s arrived in your inbox. πŸ™‚

  15. Poppy says:

    Thank you for the link back! What an incredible selection! πŸ˜€

  16. Lisa says:

    I literally went out and bought the ingredients for three of these recipes! What an incredible round up of vegan deliciousness!

    Happy Holidays!

  19. Lorrie Wenzler says:

    Cute and yummy looking.

  20. Oh My goodness! These look so good! I’m so glad you visited my blog, so I could find yours πŸ™‚ Love the name of your blog too! xChard

  21. I cant wait to try that millionaires shortbread – wow! They all look mouthwatering! Thanks for including one of my recipes πŸ™‚

  22. thehungrymum says:

    they all look incredible – yum!

  23. Everything in moderation πŸ˜‰ I’m always “healthifying” recipes so that we can still have a treat once in a while and not feel guilty about it. It’s actually fairly easy when using high quality and wholesome organic ingredients πŸ™‚
    These all look delish!

    • I totally agree with you!! I think it’s okay to indulge as long as it’s really “an indulgence” and not a daily thing. Thanks so much for reading – I appreciate it!! Celeste πŸ™‚
