10 Vegan Holiday Cookies Even Non-Vegans Will Love
Want to eat more plant based for the holidays? Yes, it's possible for your holiday cookie tray to have recipes that use no dairy at all. But even better: it won't taste like you're giving up anything! Trust us: take one bite of these cookies, and you'll see they're just as rich and decadent as any cookie. (P.S., Santa will love them!)
But wait: how do vegan cookies work? Well, instead of butter they use fats like coconut oil. Instead of milk, non-dairy milk like almond or oat milk. For eggs, some use a flax egg (others are fine without!). A tip on shopping for vegan butter: look for a brand that's minimally processed and made with real food ingredients, organic if possible.
