30 Recipes for Vegan Holiday Cookies, Candy and Treats

30 Recipes for Vegan Holiday Cookies, Candy and Treats
People have a preconceived notion about vegan baking that just isn’t true—they assume that without the eggs and dairy, vegan treats just don’t stand up to the original. That’s really not the case, though. Even though I’m not strictly vegan, I almost always bake without eggs and milk because I don’t keep them on hand and I’ve found that my flax-and-coconut-milk versions of recipes aren’t lacking in anything—and most people never realize they’re eating vegan doughnuts or quick breads.

I’ve gathered 30 recipes for vegan holiday cookies, candy and other sweet treats below, but if you have a favorite cookie recipe, it’s very likely that you can veganize it yourself! Fork and Beans has a great guide on vegan egg substitutes and the Frosted Vegan does a fantastic job outlining the steps of veganizing a non-vegan cookie recipe on her blog.

Happy baking!

    I can never find sweet treats in the supermarkets that cater for vegan and vegetarians. These seem simple enough, might give them a try

    As a vegetarian who does not consume dairy products, it gets hard to find treats, might give these a try, seem simple enough.

    Your vegan peanut brittle recipe has butter as an ingredient.I am assuming margarine would work as well.I am not vegan but looking to make treats for my family and 3 are vegan.I only use butter and the vegans only use Becel olive oil margarine and that is the spreadable type so alot more water content.Any suggestions?

      I think Earth Balance is usually used as a substitute for butter in vegan recipes.
