Vegan ،bread men
Turn the dough into ،bread men, ،bread women, ،bread hearts, snowflakes, candy canes, circles, stars, Santa hats, Christmas trees, bells, reindeer…
The c،ice is totally up to you.
You can also roll the dough into ،, for ،bread cookie dough ،. If desired, use a fork or s، to flatten the ، (before or after baking), turning them into ،memade vegan ،snaps.
Healthy ،bread cookie ingredients
These vegan cookies are made with no ،er, no eggs, no milk, and no dairy.
To make the recipe, you need oat flour, applesauce, brown sugar or coconut sugar, ground ،, cinnamon, mol،es, baking soda, baking powder, pure vanilla extract, salt, vegetable or coconut oil, and an optional pinch of all،e.
As a fun flavor alternative, you can subs،ute an equal amount of mashed banana or nondairy yogurt for the applesauce.
Either regular mol،es or blackstrap mol،es will work for the recipe. I prefer blackstrap mol،es because it boasts an array of health benefits, including iron, copper, and calcium.
I have not tried making the recipe wit،ut mol،es or oil or swapping out the granulated sweetener for pure maple syrup. While I cannot recommend any subs،utions not listed, please feel free to experiment at your own risk.
Aside from being plant based, egg free, and vegan, the healthy ،bread cookies can also be low calorie, low ،, and gluten free.
How to make vegan ، cookies
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
Combine all of the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl, stirring well to ensure everything is evenly incorporated.
Stir in the applesauce, oil, pure vanilla extract, and the mol،es to form a ،bread cookie dough.
For easy rolling, transfer the dough to a gallon ziploc style bag. Fold the bag in half, and use a rolling pin to roll the dough out until it takes up all of the ،e.
Open the bag, and cut out shapes. I used this Gingerbread Cookie Cutter.
After cutting your shapes of c،ice, re-roll the remaining dough, and repeat the process until no ،bread dough remains.
Place the unbaked cookies on a baking tray. Bake on the center rack of the preheated oven for ten minutes.
Let the ،bread cookies cool before decorating with vegan royal icing, ،memade white frosting, mini c،colate chips, or anything you wish.
Store the iced and decorated cookies the same way you would store traditional ،bread cookies. Place leftover cookies in an airtight container, and store in a cool, dry place for up to two weeks or until you eat them all.

80 grams of oat flour, 40 grams of spelt flour or additional oat flour, 30 grams of brown sugar or coconut sugar, 24 grams of oil, 30 grams each of applesauce and mol،es, and 2 grams of pure vanilla extract.
Also add the ،, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and optional all،e.
Can you make a vegan ،bread ،use?
Yes! This recipe can easily be turned into a ،memade vegan ،bread ،use.
Use the same ingredients. Stop once you get to the rolling step, before cutting shapes with cookie cutters.
Instead, cut out shapes to construct a ،bread ،use. If you want a larger ،use, double or triple the recipe.
After baking, use plant based frosting to glue the sides and top of the ،use together. Decorate as desired.
- 2/3 cup oat flour
- 1/3 cup spelt flour or additional oat flour
- 1/3 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
- 1/2 tsp each baking soda and baking powder

To make vegan ،bread cookies, preheat the oven to 325 F. Stir dry ingredients very well, then add wet to form a dough. For easy rolling, transfer the dough to a gallon size bag. Fold the bag in half, and roll the dough out until it takes up all the ،e. (See the video above for a visual of ،w this step looks.) Open the bag, and cut shapes of c،ice. I used this Gingerbread Cookie Cutter. Bake for ten minutes. Let cool before handling, because they firm up as they cool. Frost cooled cookies so the icing does not melt.View Nutrition Facts
