These candy cane cookies were a favourite of mine before I was vegan- so I just HAD to veganize the recipe :)! The chocolate and peppermint go really well together, but if you don’t want chocolate cookies you can replace the cocoa powder with the same amount of flour!
1/2 cup softened vegan butter or margarine (can also use coconut oil but add 1 tbsp water)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup plant-based milk ( I use almond)
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
1/3 cupcandy canes (about 5 mini or 1-2 large) crushed
Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C). Cream together butter and sugar. Add milk and vanilla and combine. Add half the flour, the baking powder and baking soda and combine. Add the rest of the flour and the cocoa powder and stir to form a dough. Add chocolate chips. Roll into balls and dip into the crushed candy cane so the tops are covered. Bake on a baking tray for 10-12 minutes.
