Well here we are, made it to the other side of Christmas! Whether your style is a large family gathering, small to-do, or anything else in-between, I think it’s true that we all love one thing about this time of year…the FOOD. I really love that there are things specifically reserved for this time of year, like my grandma’s cheeseball recipe, making cutout sugar cookies with my dad, and doing our yearly lasagna for dinner tradition (which is more common than I thought it was!).
One thing that I’ve never gotten into, but kind of wish I had the patience for, is making gingerbread houses! I mean, A Cozy Kitchen made a KILLER one and I’m thinking uhhh, I don’t even have the patience to properly frost a cake more than once a year! But, I do have the patience for vegan ginger cookies that are soft, easy, and SO so perfect for cutting out into little gingerbread men or slathering with vegan frosting. I’m actually not one to spring for the gingerbread, especially since they’re usually rock hard, don’t taste great, and lack a little extra oomph to them. BUT, this version fixes all of those problems. Perfect, easy, and full of oomph!
How to make vegan ginger cookies
One of the BEST things about this recipe is that it doesn’t require fresh ginger! I almost never have it on hand, so I wanted something that would come together with ingredients I always have on hand, but still pack that ginger-y punch.
Make sure to whisk your dry ingredients! This is going to prevent that clumping situation that is NO fun when you get a mouthful of baking soda or too much ginger in one cookie and not enough in another. You know what I’m talking about and it’s NOT fun.
Use good flour! I know this seems kind of like a given, but using good flour is going to give you a more consistent, even result. I also think that when a cookie doesn’t have a ton going on in it, each ingredient is super important. My favorite is Bob’s Red Mill Organic Unbleached All-Purpose Flour for ALL my baking. Hands down, the best!
Watch your bake time! The dough for these vegan ginger cookies is already on the brown side, so they aren’t going to brown up like other cookie doughs. Pull these out before you think they’re totally done, or else you’re going to end up with overdone cookies!
And that’s it! These are actually pretty easy and don’t require anything special to make them, so you could whip them up in time for a party or celebration and let them cool for a bit before packing up and serving. I’ve also topped these with both vanilla or chocolate frosting and they are equally as delicious.

We’re in the home stretch! That place in-between ‘crap did I buy all the gifts’ and ‘feeling pretty good about the holiday season but also maybe forgot something’, right? Either way, you’re doing the best, did you know that? (more…)
Alright everyone, it’s crunch time. If you’re scrolling through Pinterest or Facebook right now, ‘tis the season to see posts like ‘10 Easy Christmas Cookies’ or ‘Best Christmas Cookie Recipes’… so we’re switching it up for the sake of Father Christmas. I’ve compiled a beautiful list of noteworthy vegan Christmas desserts that will satisfy even the toughest of critics.
OH FFFFUUGDE. Only I didn’t say fudge. I said THEE word. The big one. The queen mother of dirty words. The F dash dash dash word. Can’t say fudge without thinking of A Christmas Story. Anyone else? Make this tasty Peanut Butter Cocoa Fudge so you won’t have to swear like Ralphie. Three ingredients. Baddabing, baddaboom – fudge!
Speaking of fudge, this Fudge Frosting paired with these Cocoa Brownies is a decadent party in your mouth. I love cocoa anything this time of year. It’s just so warm and cozy and fills me with happy memories.
I love a good truffle and these coconut cashew beauties are no exception. These are perfect for boxing up and gifting to your friends, neighbors, teachers, mail carrier – you see where I’m going with this?
Sharing pie during the holidays is almost like a ceremonious occasion in my house. There’s just something about passing around slices that truly wraps the season in a big red bow. This Chocolate Vegan Pecan Pie is best made in steps, so you can do a little bit at a time at your convenience!
There’s something about pull apart bread that makes me so happy. I don’t know if it’s because it’s a treat for your tastebuds and satisfying feeling of pulling the layers apart, or some other unknown reason. The orange adds such a bright flavor explosion and the glaze is perfection. You’ll be so proud passing this one around to your friends and family.
If you’re looking for a little something different to add to your holiday pie rotation, this Vegan Peanut Butter Pie fits the bill. The peanut butter flavor really shines in this pie and is a force to be reckoned with. 10/10 recommend.
What says winter more than hot chocolate? This Creamy Vegan Coconut Hot Chocolate recipe puts a fun spin on a winter classic. Cozy up inside with a mug or two and spike with some coffee liqueur if you’re feeling adventurous.

Ohhh you know I wouldn’t let the holiday season go by without another peppermint recipe, right? I’ve kind of always wanted to make my own version of vegan chocolate peppermint cups, but they all seem to be totally based on a coconut butter middle and to be honest, I NEVER keep that stuff on hand.
