What Makes This Recipe Great

This list includes an amazing array of Gluten Free Vegan Cookie Recipes that are near and dear to my heart (and kitchen!). Since eating vegan and gluten-free, I found tons of tips and tricks to make these dairy-free and gluten-free cookie versions just as tasty as the classics, using completely vegan ingredients!

From sugar cookies to the best vegan chocolate chip cookies, holiday cookie recipes, and more– these 15+ recipes will make vegan baking a cinch! Make a double batch to freeze, and enjoy these delicious cookies!

Before we get started, let’s get our pantry in order! Many of these recipes require pantry staples and simple ingredients you may already have on hand. If you’re itching to make cookies regularly, I recommend keeping the following ingredients and equipment on hand. You can source most of these basic ingredients at the grocery store or a specialty store like Whole Foods.

Ingredients

  • Vegan Butter: I recommend using vegan butter sticks. Butter freezes well so stick it in the freezer for longer storage.
  • Gluten-Free Flour Blend: I recommend having an all-purpose flour blend on hand that contains xanthan gum. Bob’s Red Mill is an excellent option. Flours like almond flour, quinoa flour, and oat flour are also good to have on hand if you plan to bake often.
  • Flax Meal: Many of these recipes call for an egg replacement like a flax egg. Using flax meal and water is an easy way to achieve this replacement. Other egg replacer options like chia eggs or aquafaba are also used at times.
  • Baking Powder
  • Baking soda
  • Coconut sugar: I use coconut sugar as an alternative to brown sugar, though sometimes organic cane sugar or white sugar is also used.
  • Vanilla extract
  • Maple syrup: This is my go-to natural sweetener of choice.
  • Tahini: Tahini paste is a great option to have on hand to add flavor and texture to cookie recipes.
  • Neutral oil: Coconut oil, avocado oil, and olive oil are always staples that I have on hand.
  • Mixins: Dairy free chocolate chips, chopped nuts, and more.
  • Arrowroot Starch or Tapioca Flour: Excellent thickeners that are used throughout vegan cooking and baking.
  • Non-Dairy Milk: Oat milk, almond milk, canned coconut milk, and more.
  • Nut butter: Peanut butter, almond butter, and cashew butter are used throughout many of these recipes.

Equipment

  • Baking Sheet: I recommend having a cookie sheet or baking tray on hand.
  • Silicone Baking mat: These are great to bake with– they’re nonstick and reusable, eliminating waste and getting the best bake possible.
  • Parchment Paper: If you don’t have baking mats, use parchment paper as an alternative.
  • Electric Mixer: A stand mixer or hand mixer is great to have on hand.
  • Spatula
  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Whisk
  • High Powdered Blender/Food Processor
  • Wire rack: For cooling.
  • Airtight Container: For storage. Most vegan cookies can be stored at room temperature for a couple of days, then frozen for longer storage.
