Vegan White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies
Hello & Happy Tuesday!!
Never have I ever.. made a Christmas cookie, at least not since I was probably in my first grade class lol.
There are few cookies that evoke a feeling of the holiday’s, and for myself it’s Snickerdoodle cookies and anything with cranberry & orange!
While brainstorming about the next perf effortless vegan holiday recipe, I decided to take the road less traveled ..and simply combine all of my favorite ingredients into one cookie! lol
If you love all things cinnamon and have a huge crush on white chocolate and cranberries, then this White Chocolate Cranberry Snickerdoodle cookie will be the next best thing since sliced bread for you!
Why this recipe rocks:
White Chocolate (I bought mine on amazon)
Lots of texture
Great for holiday parties
- 1 and 1/2 cups oat flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup milk substitute
- 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup vegan white chocolate chips
- 1 tsp orange zest
- In a large bowl, combine the oat flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and cream of tartar then sift together.
- Pour in the melted coconut oil, almond milk orange zest and vanilla extract then stir until a dough has formed. Fold in the cranberries and white chocolate.
- Cover and chill the cookie dough in the refrigerator for 10 minutes. This assists with them retaining their shape and not spreading out too much while cooking.
- Scooping out a few tablespoons of dough at a time.
- Roll the dough into balls and place the cookies several inches apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper then chill the cookies for at least an hour in the refrigerator or thirty minutes in the freezer.
- When you are ready to bake them, preheat the oven to 350°F and remove the cookies from the refrigerator or freezer. Once the oven is preheated, bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes. It is difficult to tell when they are done because of the cinnamon coating but they should be done within that time. They will be very soft and appear under-baked but once they cool, they become harder. Allow to cool for at least thirty minutes.
- For less perf cookies, skip the fridge steps!
