Vegan Christmas Cookies and Treats Roundup

my little dude, transformed into Santa


There you have it, friends: 30 vegan Christmas cookies and treats, all with recipes. There is a little something for everybody here: drop cookies, cut-outs, bars, balls, no bake recipes, stocking stuffers, party food, cocktails, even Christmas breakfast recipes. There are gluten-free options, soy free options, and several recipes which are so easy that you can hand them over to your kids. Best of all, almost every single recipe has ingredients which can be bought at your local grocery store, and I know, because I made many of these while living in a tiny rural Texas town where it’s difficult to find tempeh, but you can be sure that there is plenty of Earth Balance to go around.

The next time that you are invited to a cookie exchange, you have no excuse not to show up with some delicious treats. No one has invited you to a vegan cookie exchange? Throw one yourself, and include this link in the invitation.

As for me, I am going to give away the last few cookies from my freezer and have a sugar-free November. Well, except for Thanksgiving day, I guess. I’m not having a Thanksgiving without pie, that would be nuts.

Thanks for following along with me!

  1. HOORAH! Happy Mofo! Joanna, I LOVED your posts this month. I am just going to spare myself the manic bookmarking, and bookmark this post.

    I was actually thinking that tomorrow I would do a post like this, where I recap all my 31 mofo posts. I want everyone to do it… so that I can quickly scroll through and catch up on the posts I missed out on. Great effort this year!!! Thanks for sharing so many amazing recipes!
