Description

Five healthy ingredients is all it takes to make these delicious vegan oat flour sugar cookies–ready to be cut-out & frosted into any festive holiday form!


Ingredients

Cookie

  • 1 ½ cup oat flour
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut butter*
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Optional: pinch of salt

Frosting

  • 1/2 cup coconut butter
  • 2-3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 4-5 tbsp non-dairy milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Combine the oat flour, baking powder, maple syrup, salt (if using) and vanilla in a mixing bowl.
  3. Melt the coconut butter until it is liquid. Add to the bowl.
  4. Mix well to form a ball of dough. Hands work better than utensils here.
  5. Divide the dough into two, and roll out one of the halves between two pieces of lightly floured wax paper.
  6. Cut into whatever shapes you like. Carefully use a spatula to transfer to a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
  7. Repeat with the rest of the dough and scraps.
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350F or until the edges are just golden.
  9. Remove from the oven and cool completely before frosting. (If you want to skip the frosting you could alternatively sprinkle on coarse sugar before baking for a sparkly look!)
  10. For the frosting: Melt the coconut butter. Add the maple syrup and stir. Add the non-dairy milk 1 tbsp at a time until it is a thick, smooth consistency.
  11. Frost your cookies, add sprinkles, share and enjoy!

Notes

*You can sub applesauce for a fat-free option, but it will make for a much more moist dough that is not suited to rolling and cutting out. Adding more flour will just dry them out, so they would have to be drop cookies. I highly recommend sticking with the coconut butter or even cashew butter here.
