Recipe Type: Christmas Holiday Cookies
Author: Yvonne Condes of MomsLA
  • 1 cup Earth Balance Vegan Butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 3/4 cup gluten-free flour (I used King Arthur multi-purpose flour)
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons Almond Flour or Garbanzo Flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Xantham gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or spray with canola oil spray.
  2. Combine the gluten-free flour, almond meal, xantham gum, and salt in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Beat the vegan butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Scrape the bowl with a rubber spatula and then add vanilla. Beat for a few seconds.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and beat until combined.
  5. Add the flour mixture slowly and mix on low until combined.
  6. Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop the batter onto the parchment paper leaving a little space in between. (You can also roll the batter into balls, but the cookie dough will be sticky.)
  7. Cook for about 15 minutes or until the cookies are golden. Let cool and then sprinkle with powdered sugar. Store in a covered container or freeze until Christmas.
