Who doesn’t love cookies!? Here are our latest favorites from the Food Monster App! These vegan gluten-free cookie recipes all utilize very different ingredients and flavors like chickpeas, almonds, pistachios, peanut butter, spices, oats, chocolate, and even more. Cookies are great for brining to get-togethers and social events, and making them vegan and gluten free is a great way to accommodate guests with certain dietary restrictions.

These Double Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies by Wendy Irene have an indulgent dark chocolate flavor without the intense sweetness. The coconut oil, although less common in baking, is a healthier alternative than traditional fats often used in cookie recipes. The coconut sugar and brown rice syrup provide a milder sweetness, and are thought to have less of an impact on your blood sugar than table sugar. It’s the perfect treat for a sunny spring day. They’re the best vegan chocolate cookies ever!

While most people may find these to be a little less sweet than expected for a cookie, I definitely find them to be the perfect after-dinner treat. The maple sugar adds a smokey note, while the cider gives them a bit of tang. If you love oatmeal, then you’ll definitely dig these Maple Cider Cookies by Ashley Flitter. Also, these are healthy enough to eat for breakfast – so you know – cookies for breakfast – yay!
