Why Make These Vegan Sugar Cookies
These sugar cookies are so soft and they melt in your mouth. They aren't your average hard set sugar cookie. They are fluffy and totally gluten free. You can customize the toppings, they can be frosted or eaten as is without the frosting.
Minimal ingredients are required for this recipe. You can substitute the maple syrup for sugar. You can also use different toppings for this recipe.
Almond Flour. The main ingredient for these Vegan Gluten Free Sugar Cookies.
Applesauce. I prefer unsweetened
Maple Syrup or Coconut Sugar. Any sugar will work but Maple syrup is by far the best flavor.
Baking Powder & Salt.
Frosting or Icing. I prefer Simple Mills Vegan Frosting. But you can use any frosting of choice. I do not make frosting from scratch for this one simple because you only need a small batch.
Sprinkles or toppings of choice!
How To Make This Recipe
This recipe is insanely easy to make. It is fool-proof and requires such little ingredients. It's an easy one bowl recipe and cooks up in 11-12 minutes. The hardest part about making these cookies is waiting for them to completely cool before frosting and enjoying.
Step one. Set oven to 350º Combine almond flour, baking powder, salt, maple syrup or sugar, applesauce together in a large bowl. Use a spatula to combine. Mix the items together until everything is well mixed. This may take a little time to get the applesauce mixed with the almond flour but it will mix!
Step two. On a parchment lined cookie sheet, separate dough into six, 2-inch sized cookies. They need about 1.5 inch between them. Bake for about 11-12 minutes. Let them completely cool and solidify a bit before frosting. Be sure to gently handle them when frosting. Sprinkle with toppings. Enjoy or keep in the fridge in a sealed container.
Yes, white granulated sugar or coconut sugar will work great.
No, you can skip it or use icing. I prefer the frosting.
They will last in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 4 days. In the freezer for up to 1 month.
