37 Whole Food-Rich Vegan Holiday Cookie Recipes, Beautiful for Gift Giving
VEGAN | WHOLE-FOOD | GLUTEN-FREE (MOST) | LOW OR NO REFINED SUGAR | HOLIDAY
'Tis the season to give and to indulge, so what could be better than a long list of beautiful cookie recipes? Especially when those recipes are boosted with whole-food ingredients! When I asked fellow bloggers if they had any cookies to contribute, they did not disappoint. These cookies are going to delight any recipient, gorgeous and decadent while being vegan, low in processed sugar, and made with more whole-food ingredients than the average Christmas cookie, meaning more nutritional value. Pretty great gift, right? For the most part, these recipes are refined sugar-free (a few have candy cane garnish or chocolate chips that contain sugar). There's something here to suit just about anyone's diet, and most are gluten-free (I've indicated those with "GF"). Many are free of flours or made with whole-food flours. You will notice there are variations on a theme so you can determine which is best for you and/or your gift recipient. It can be interesting to check out different ways to approach gingerbread, for example, and helpful to be able to choose which recipe ingredients/methods will fit your life the best.
Nutrients aren't the only way these cookies have a boost; pure ingredients also mean pure flavor. So give a real gift this year - to your friends, your family, yourself, and your planet. All by making these cookies! A pretty fun way to start eating more plants.
You're in for a real treat. Happy Holidays!
