Gluten-Free Vegan Cookies
There's nothing quite as comforting as biting into a freshly baked cookie.

We're happy to say you can still enjoy a decadent cookie and a glass of non-dairy milk with these five gluten-free and vegan cookie recipes. Covering all the basics like chocolate chip, sugar cookies, and gingerbread, you'll be able to easily whip up a batch for dessert or to do some holiday baking.
Gluten-Free Vegan Shortbread Cookies
You'd never guess that these tender and buttery cookies, which are made with just five simple ingredients, were dairy-free. You can roll them out and use cookie cutters for unique shapes, or follow reviewer Buckwheat Queen's advice, "I formed the dough into a log shape and refrigerated it while the oven preheated. I then just cut rounds instead of rolling it out and using cookie cutters."
Gluten-Free Vegan Gingerbread Cookies
Nothing makes it feel like the holidays quite like smelling freshly baked gingerbread throughout the house. The sturdy base of almond flour and arrowroot makes them easy to roll, while brown sugar, molasses, and plenty of spices create the classic gingerbread flavor.
Vegan Almond Flour Sugar Cookies
You know those addictively soft sugar cookies that are in almost every grocery store bakery? Well this recipe is the gluten-free and vegan version of those. The secret to the tender cookies is a few tablespoons of coconut butter, a creamy paste made from blending fresh coconut at a high speed.
The Best Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie
You can enjoy the classic taste of a chocolate chip cookie with this simple vegan cookie recipe. Be sure to double check that your chocolate chips are dairy free; many brands contain milk or butter extract. "This were sooooo good especially for being gluten free and vegan," says reviewer Bites Beyond Limits.
Peanut Butter Bliss Cookies - Vegan, Gluten-Free, No-Sugar-Added
"The best dessert if you are vegan, don't eat added sweetener, on a gluten-free diet, or just simply love soft peanut butter cookies," says recipe creator jack beggs. You can easily make your own oat flour for this recipe. Simply blitz rolled oats in your food processor until a fine powder forms, then measure out how much you need.
