Gluten-Free & Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Crunchy, sweet, and full of oatmeal flavor, these cookies are a true staple!

I LOVE an oatmeal cookie. But I am picky, my oatmeal cookies need to have a touch of cinnamon and need to be crispy. If they are squishy, it drives me nuts. I have no idea why, because, chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies and snickerdoodles MUST be soft.

Eating a oatmeal cookie is a something of pure joy. The earthy oats mixed with the sugar and the light hint of cinnamon, I mean perfection!

Sugar-Free (gluten-free & vegan) Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

A few months ago (wow!) I did sugar-free January! This personal challenge really helped me reset my taste buds and enjoy food again! The challenge for me was not to loose weight, or to lean out, it was truly to wean myself off of the dependency of sugar. During the holidays, sugar is freakin’ everywhere. It is so easy to grab a cookie at 4pm hunger rather than an apple.

I felt that this reset was the best thing for my mental health and my physical relationship with food! I created this recipe in January for Sugar-Free Chocolate chip cookies that were also gluten-free & vegan! They were a HUGE hit!

I am a huge double chocolate lover. Those double chocolate costco muffins use to be my all time fave, but alas…they ain’t vegan or gluten-free and would most likely kill me from a dairy attack and definitely from the enriched wheat flour.

Sugar-Free & (GF, Vegan) Chocolate Chip Cookies

This past week was the worst week of my life. Without starting this post of really negative, we had a really scary thing happen with our sweet baby dog. She’s been with us for 4.5 years and truly my best friend. She’s all I have and has been my rock. We have moved to California together, Utah, Florida, back to Utah and now Montana with each other.

Wednesday, 1/8

Last week she started feeling really sick and so we took her to the emergency vet, she spent 3 nights in the doggie hospital and pulled through. All I felt like doing last week was crumbling into a million pieces. I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep and Drew and I were just a puddle of fear. Our baby is home with us now. She is resting and recovery and we are just holding her so close to our hearts now that she is back in our arms.

I was restless and started baking. Since I personally gave up refined sugars, I baked these and had some friends try them and let me know how they tasted! For sugar free January this year, I gave up stevia and 0 calorie sweeteners as well, but if you are looking for a refined sugar free cookie, these are your cookie!

These chocolate chip cookies, are ideally sweet, soft and bendy but full of chocolate chips. Let’s get to baking!

Gluten-Free & Vegan Peppermint Chocolate Chunk Cookies

There is a trend with me and chocolate cookies. I absolutely love chocolate cookies that are tender and sweet but also really taste the cocoa!

Christmas seems to be the time where you get endless tins of mediocre peppermint bark in varying shapes, thickness and more. I am starting a trend where we give out these cookies instead! They are still full of peppermint and chocolate flavor but will switch up the annual cookie or sweet give!

These cookies are so easy to make, soft on the inside with a brownie like crunch on the outside! The soft peppermint filling in the cookie chunks add a delicious peppermint flavor to the chocolate flavor of the cookie.

Gluten-Free & Vegan Shortbread Cookies with Jam

I have the fondest memories of thumbprint jam cookies as a kid! My mom would always put them into our lunches for school and my favorite were the raspberry jam! I got the most amazing package from Foodlyn and couldn’t resist remaking these cookies with vegan ingredients and also gluten free! 

This was the most delicious jam I have ever tasted! The raspberry has a hint of basil and just coats your body in a hug of delicious! But, I love pears! Like LOVE pears! When I tasted this pear jam I wanted to jump up and down its so amazing! The hint of vanilla bean in the jam adds the most amazing pairing to the shortbread cookies!
