I handed out these cookies at my gym and everyone RAVED about them… I even “purposely” forgot to mention that they were vegan and secretly healthy too! Who knew a vegan cookie could taste better than a “regular” cookie?

These cookies are great to make if you have certain dietary restrictions as a simple ingredient swap can easily fit your needs! Follow the recipe below if you prefer gluten free, dairy free, and low sugar cookies! 

Don’t care if it’s gluten or dairy free? Feel free to swap the gluten free flour for all purpose flour and the vegan butter/sweetener for regular butter and sugar. Whichever way you choose to make these cookies, they will be an instant hit! 

 

Below is a list of the “special” ingredients I used:

 

Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Flour  (can sub with all purpose flour)

Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Sticks (can sub with regular butter)

Swerve Sweeteners (can sub with granulated and brown sugar)

Yep It’s Vegan Vanilla Ice Cream Protein Powder (can sub with protein of choice, or flour)

Enjoy Life Foods Dark Chocolate (can sub with any type of chocolate)

  1. Mix doughs separately, combining dry ingredients separately from wet ingredients. Combine the dry and wet together until thoroughly mixed. Gently stir in chocolate chunks to both doughs. Cover both cookie doughs and place doughs in fridge for 1 hour, until firm. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Take 1/2 tbsp of each dough and form into 1 ball. Place balls on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone mat. Bake cookies for 9-10 minutes. Remove from oven and top with additional chunks of chocolate and sea salt, if desired. Allow cookies to cool completely on cookie rack before storing in airtight container for up to 1 week.

What can be better than S’mores? 

Adding peanut butter and making them into brownies, of course!

 

Made vegan and gluten free, it is impossible to say no to one of these decadent and delicious brownies.
