Is it holiday cookie season yet??? I might be getting a little bit ahead of myself, considering it’s still the first week of September and it’s still in the 80s here in San Diego. But I can’t help myself! Kids are back in school, it’s officially Fall, and that means that holiday cookie season isn’t that far off.

I don’t know about you, but fall is holiday cookie testing period around here. We’ve got to make all the cookies to see which ones are deserving enough to be the star of your holiday cookie platters. And these Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Crinkle Cookies? They’re definitely worthy of being the star.

Why are Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Crinkle Cookies SO good?!

These are a fan favorite around here because they are so. dang. easy. to make! If you bake gluten-free/vegan regularly, you probably already have all the ingredients on hand, too. The result of your little bit of effort makes a cookie that is:

  • Insanely chocolatey with a fudgy, brownie-like texture
  • Crispy, thanks to the sugary crackle crust
  • Buttery, despite being fully dairy-free and vegan

How to make CHOCOLATE CRINKLE COOKIES

Step 1: whip together your coconut oil, cashew butter (or other nut butter), and coconut sugar until nice and fluffy

Step 2: add the flax egg and vanilla extract- you could use 1 regular egg + 1 egg yolk if you don’t want to make a flax egg

Step 3: add your dry ingredients and stir until it’s all combined, and then add lots of chocolate chips

Step 4: CHILL your dough for at least 30 minutes. it will make it way easier to roll into balls and you won’t get covered in sticky chocolate dough. don’t skip this one!

Step 5: scoop your chocolate dough into balls and roll them in raw turbinado sugar (or for a more classic look, go with organic powdered sugar). bake until puffed and crackly, and then eat one warm –> **most important step**

These paleo-friendly cookies are perfect for the holidays and come together quickly. Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 10 minutes Chill Time 30 minutes Servings 12 cookies Author Rachel

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons (37g) coconut oil softened with a texture similar to softened butter
  • 3 tablespoons (48g) creamy cashew butter or nut butter of choice
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • flax eggs 1.5 tablespoon flax meal + 4 tablespoons water, whisk and let set for 10 minutes
  • teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cup (148g) blanched almond flour
  • ¼ cup cacao powder
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup vegan chocolate chips
  • cup raw turbinado sugar to roll the cookies in (can also use organic powdered sugar)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, stir together the coconut oil, nut butter, and coconut sugar until fully combined, about 1 minute.

  2. Beat in the flax eggs, then stir in the vanilla extract.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the blanched almond flour, cacao powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir together until completely combined.

  4. Place dough in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before forming balls to make it easier to work with - you can leave the dough in the fridge, covered, for up to 48 hours.

  5. When you’re ready to bake, preheat oven to 350°F.
  6. Place the turbinado sugar in a small bowl to roll the cookies in.
  7. Use a small cookie scoop (mine fits 1.5 tablespoons of dough) to make cookie dough balls, roll into a ball with your hands, and then roll each dough ball in the sugar mixture. Place the cookies 2 inches apart onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet.

  8. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until they’ve puffed and cracked. Let cool completely on the cookie sheet.
  9. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
