soft, sweet, spicy and perfect cookie for the winter months!


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cups of vegan butter
  • 3/4 cups of granulated sugar

  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/4 cup of almond milk


  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon


  1. preheat your oven to 350°F and line your baking sheet with parchment, reusable silicon pad or grease with vegan butter
  2. in a bowl with a mixer cream your vegan butter with your sugar – about 3 minutes until light and fluffy
  3. once they are mixed add in your vanilla extract, almond milk, baking powder, salt, cocoa powder and ground cinnamon
  4. next add in your gluten-free flour, 1/4 cup at a time until well combined
  5. in a separate bowl, mix your ground cinnamon (2 tbsp) and sugar until evenly mixed and set aside
  6. pinch 1″ ball of dough and roll in the palms of your hands to form a ball, roll each ball in the sugar and cinnamon topping and set onto the baking sheet 2″ apart
  7. repeat until your dough is all rolled
  8. bake for 10-12 minutes and enjoy warm!

    Hi! I was wondering what your favorite vegan butter is? I’ve tried a few and don’t think I’ve found one that works correctly in baking

      Sorry! I am just seeing this! I use Earth Balance vegan butter sticks and they work pretty much exactly like butter! I have found that some coconut butters are very wet and you need to add a little more Gluten free flour to bind them!
