Good recipes to share with friends.
It’s not that vegan cookies are inherently healthier than non-vegan cookies. Sure, they have less cholesterol but who are we kidding, we’re not helping to trim Santa’s waistline by setting these babies out. Who knows though, maybe his reindeer love cookies and they are pretty darn vegan (I’m 95% sure). However, like cats and dogs there are probably risks with giving a reindeer chocolate. But these are flying reindeer and if they have the magical powers to fly they are probably okay with a little chocolate. Okay, well, these are delicious potluck treats. I absolutely love this cookie recipe and decided to add a glaze to it to ring in the holiday spirit with the season’s spice: peppermint.
I’ve made these lots of times without blending the flax seeds and they’re still delicious. I’ve also been at times desperate for a chocolate fix without any chocolate chips around and just made the plain cookies. Or I’ve thrown in dried fruit or nuts. The possibilities are endless here folks so bookmark this recipe and pull it out anytime of year.
Apparently people also listen to Christmas music all year around as well. If you’re one of those people then you can put on my special Christmas mix whenever you make this recipe otherwise, I’m sorry. It’s all about the fat man in the suit right now and I can’t get my head anywhere else.
Or watch from Youtube.
At some point I contemplated putting little bits of crushed candy cane on top, but do you know how difficult it is to find candy canes two days before Christmas? Yeah, I didn’t either until this year. Whatever. Personally I’m not a huge candy cane fan anyway. You could try it though and take pictures and let me know if you like it. Seriously, the glaze is pretty minty already so you shouldn’t need it for any other reason than a bit of decoration.
