I’m so excited to share with you that today I baked vegan cookies successfully!! It was my first time too!
I was inspired to give it a try after reading my dear blogger friend Celeste’s Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe.
I followed Celeste’s amazing recipe step by step with a few substitutions/additions to make it gluten-free and nut-free for an Easter celebration.

I love reading Celeste’s blog (http://honkifyourevegan.com), as she writes about so many interesting and diverse topics on veganism, has fabulous ideas and yummy recipes, and shares her personal plant-based diet journey along the way. Check her blog out when you have time, and I guarantee you’ll be better informed on veganism and inspired by her! 🙂
If you like to make these cookies gluten-free and nut-free, here are the ingredients I used:
2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
6 tablespoons water
2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup coconut oil, softened
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons orange zest
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
6 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
*I baked the cookies for 10 minutes so they are soft and chewy.

I wish you all a beautiful week ahead and if you celebrate Easter, Happy Easter! 🙂
