Scroll down the post to find your favorite new cookie recipe to make for your friends, family, or just for yourself.
To make a vegan and gluten-free cookie, this means that the recipe is both fully plant-based and free from any gluten-containing flours.
Most of these recipes use ingredients such as gluten-free flour, almond flour, coconut oil, oat flour, brown sugar, flax egg, vegan chocolate chips, almond milk, vanilla extract, coconut sugar, and melted vegan butter.
Vegan and gluten-free cookies will NOT contain ingredients such as all purpose flour, eggs, dairy milk, or butter.
Can any cookie recipe be made vegan and gluten-free?
Most types of cookie recipes can be made vegan and gluten-free, but it’s best to find a recipe that has been tested with these changes. In other words, don’t just expect that you can leave out the eggs, gluten, and milk and think that it will turn out okay. It’s best to find a recipe that has been fully tested (like the ones included in the list below).
Can you freeze vegan cookies?
Most baked vegan cookies can be frozen for up to 2 months.
What can you use instead of eggs as a vegan egg wash?
There are lots of options for making an egg-free and plant-based egg wash. Some options include using an egg substitute, maple syrup, aquafaba, or a chia egg. Here is my full list of the best vegan substitutes for egg wash.
Now onto the recipes!
