Wagon Wheels were a favourite of mine growing up, but between the milk and gelatine, they no longer seem to be a friend of mine. It took me several attempts to create a version that tasted just as good as the original, but without the nasty ingredients that make vegan fairies lose their wings. I usually encourage my readers to substitute ingredients if they feel so inclined, but for this one, I’d suggest following it closely. Your gluten intolerant, vegan fairy friends will love it.
Melting Moments make for such an impressive sweet treat, and although time consuming, are really easy to make. You can experiment with different jam, buttercream and cookie flavours, but for me, nothing beats a classic shortbread, a buttery filling and a sweet jam. Be sure to enjoy in moderation!
I’m going to keep this short and sweet, not unlike this recipe! You probably have most of these ingredients already at home, so it’s just a matter of combining them in a bowl, shaping them into cookies and throwing them into the oven. Even quicker is the time it’ll take to eat them.
If you’re a vegan missing chocolate biscuits, sweets or Tim Tams (or just a human being with taste buds), you’ll love my Vegan Tim Tams. They’re made with a crunchy biscuit base, a creamy filling and a rich coating, and taste just as good as the real thing. They freeze well if you can manage to stop before the entire batch is gone. Happy nibbling!
Full of sweet jam and bursting with nostalgia, these childhood favourites are a fabulous treat for high teas, family gatherings or the day after a painful presidential election. My Jammy Dodgers are easy to make, can be modified to be gluten free, and allow for jam and cookie dough flavour experimentation (blackberry jam, perhaps?). Eat in moderation, if you can stop at just one.
Crunchy, sweet and lightly spiced, the combination of peanut butter and cinnamon in these cookies is a total revelation. They make the perfect morning tea snack, high tea treat or delicious base for a vegan ice-cream sandwich (just stuff with your favourite ice-cream and be on your way!). You can easily make these cookies gluten free by using an alternative flour, too, so even your gluten intolerant cookie monster friends can enjoy this recipe.
I think Cookie Monster said it best: ‘Today me will live in the moment, unless it’s unpleasant, in which case, me will eat a cookie.’ This recipe is perfect for the vegan looking for a healthy, plant based cookie, that even our friend Cookie Monster would enjoy. Mildly spiced, lightly sweetened and crunchy, my Healthier Oatmeal and Raisin Cookies are a great option for last minute guests or a morning tea treat.
Chewy, crunchy and covered in chocolate, there isn’t much these biscuits couldn’t accomplish should they put their minds to it. Some people like using coconut sugar because it’s *healthier than more refined sugars, but I like it because it adds a gritty texture to an otherwise smooth biscuit. Feel free to experiment with different flavoured chocolate and toppings – I have a feeling some crushed almonds would work very well indeed!
Any sentence that combines the words, ‘healthier’ and ‘chocolate chip cookies’, is a sentence that should be uttered as much as possible. This recipe makes a lovely, soft cookie that is free of egg and oil, and is low in sugar. As vegans we obviously don’t eat cookies with a glass of milk, so why not try with a nice big cup of homemade, soy chai!
I’m going to keep this short and sweet, just like this recipe. My Easy Oat and Raisin Cookies are healthy, quick to make, taste great. They are gluten free, vegan and refined sugar free, so go for it!
