Vegan Gingerbread Cookies


We have a few cherished holiday traditions in our home. Decorating the Christmas tree and walking in our neighborhood, that is filled with lights and decorations, are at the top of the list. Another tradition that brings us so much joy is baking vegan gingerbread cookies with our young children. Cookies are such an easy way to get them involved and learn some basic math skills too! And when you have super fun holiday cutouts it makes it even more exciting. Our two-year-old loves sampling everything along the way, while our newly five-year old loves mixing and cutting out shapes. Sharing these precious moments together makes the holidays that much more special.


We hope this recipe brings you and your family together for some fun and joy in the kitchen this holiday season. These cookies may not be heart healthy, but they definitely make our hearts happy and are oh so worth the time! They are also perfect for those of you just like us - without fancy cooking tools and with little helper hands!
