5 Amazing Christmas Cookie Recipes That Happen To Be Vegan

Now that thanksgiving is over, the holiday season is officially upon us and with the holiday season comes the time for stuffing your face with amazing Christmas cookies. But worry not my friends, vegans certainly do not have to miss out on all the fun. In fact, I would like to point out here that you do not have to eat super healthy on a vegan diet and you could literally be eating Oreos and chips all day and still be a vegan. It's a common misconception that vegans only eat extremely healthy stuff where in fact, it is all up to you and there are more vegan things in the grocery store than you probably thought. The most well known are probably Oreos but did you know that for example when you eat Swedish Fish or Skittles, you are having a vegan snack? I know right, vegan food is so gross. Ew. Who likes Skittles anyways...

Look around your local grocery store and be surprised by how many cookies they sell are actually vegan! Look for ingredients listed in bold (allergens) and avoid milk, butter, and eggs. Icing is usually always vegan so you can just buy it from the store for deocrating, if you want!

However, if you want to feel like baking some cookies and decorating them, here are some recipes for you. I will show you just how easy it is.

1. One Bowl Vegan Sugar Cookies

The holiday classic. No one can go without sugar cookies this December, so why not make the vegan version to save the environment and animals while maintaining the taste we all love. These literally have 6 ingredients, all of which you likely have at home anyways (apart from vegan butter/ margarine but that's easy to get). Yummy.

2. Ginger Bread Cookies!

Again, we have a recipe here with only 6 ingredients, all of which you should have at home. This recipe uses honey, which depending on who you ask is not considered vegan so you can switch that with some agave syrup if you would like.

3. Spekulatius Cookies (My Favorite)

If you've read past articles then you probably already know that I'm German. So I simply could not refrain from adding a German recipe. These are very popular around christmas and so, so, sooo yummy. You probably already know the taste if you have ever tried Trader Joe's Cookie Butter. Again, a super easy recipe and it even has different versions for you to choose from!

4. Coconut, Almond, and Raspberry Jam Thumbprint Cookies

As all the recipes before, this one does not require any special 'vegan' ingredients but instead uses things that most people already have in their pantries anyways. I don't know what it is about coconut used in Christmas cookies but somehow it's a thing and I'm not mad about it.

5. Peppermint Mocha Cookies

No list of Christmas cookies is complete without some kind of peppermint cookie. Who doesn't like the taste of coffee and who doesn't like the taste of peppermint? Combining the two sounds delicious and you can even sprinkle tiny little trees on them like in this picture. Happy baking everyone!

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
