Ultimate DIY Vegan Cookie Board

This may have been the most epic blog post and photo shoot I’ve ever tackled. It’s my last post before Christmas, and I think it’s safe to say we’re going out with a bang this year! I hope my roundup inspires you to create your own vegan cookie board—big or small—this holiday season. If you make one and share it online, I’d love to see. Be sure to use the hashtags #ohsheglows, #osgcookies, #GETINMABELLY, and #SantaGoesVegan…okay, I suppose the last two are optional.

Yesterday morning, in the throes of a nasty cold, all I could think was: “WHAT DID I GET MYSELF INTO!?” Here I was, buzzing around the kitchen, decorating cookies at the speed of light while Arlo played quietly with his educational toys (just kidding, he screamed at my legs..bahaha). I wish you could’ve seen me running between my kitchen and photography studio during naptime, pleading with the Nap Gods for five more minutes of photoshoot time. Luckily it all came together with some major hustling.

Check out these two behind-the-scenes photos! Organized chaos. ;)

Can you spot the gingerbread escapee below? LOL. It’s like a scene straight out of Shrek.

As you’ll see in the graphic below, we’re playing around with a new photo feature. Please humour me by hovering over the red dots near each cookie grouping to display a fun pop-up box. I actually find all that clicking around quite satisfying…almost like popping bubble wrap! I’d love to hear whether you like this sort of thing; if so, we’ll do more in the future. 

 

1. Gluten-free Snickerdoodles

A festive favourite. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and a dash of turbinado after baking. Recipe is online here. Or find the non-gluten-free version here.

2. Almond Butter Rice Crisp Treats

Riffing on the classic Rice Krispie Square, these treats can be iced and sprinkled in advance for a pop of colour. I like to cut them into triangles for “tree” shapes around the holidays. Recipe available on the Oh She Glows Recipe App and on the blog.

3. Eggnog Crunch Biscotti 

A great companion to coffee or a latte, these crispy eggnog biscotti have a wonderful nutty flavour too. If you don’t have vegan eggnog on hand any plant-based milk works in a pinch. Recipe on Oh She Glows.

4. Gingerbread People

What’s a holiday spread without gingerbread buddies? These are fun for kids to help make too. Recipe from the Oh She Glows Recipe App (inside the Cookie Lover’s bundle).

5. Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites

With a quick prep and 10-minute chill, these bites are perfect for whipping up just before guests arrive. Recipe from The Oh She Glows Cookbook, page 235.

6. Triple Almond Thumbprint Cookies

Kid- and freezer-friendly for easy prep, any leftover cookies are perfect for breakfast the next morning, not that you’ll have any to speak of! Arlo LOVES these cookies. Recipe from Oh She Glows Every Day, page 205.

7. Ultimate Flourless Brownies

Rich and decadent, these gluten-free brownies with an almond butter base will make your kitchen smell amazing before guests arrive. Recipe from Oh She Glows Every Day, page 199.

8. Pillowy Pumpkin Snacking Cookies

Nut-free and kid-friendly, these cookies are a lighter complement to the board’s richer desserts. Recipe from Oh She Glows Every Day, page 217.

9. Lightened Up Magical Coconut Bars

Lightened up without butter and using unsweetened coconut, these bars still feel totally indulgent. Recipe on Oh She Glows.

10. Chewy Molasses Spelt Cookies

A holiday classic. I like to dip half in white chocolate and decorate with chopped candied ginger to punch up colour on the plate. Recipe is on the blog and in Oh She Glows Every Day, page 219.

11. Chocolate Macaroon Truffles

Rolled in matcha, these truffles add a sweet festive look to the board. For a more traditional macaroon flavour, you can stir shredded coconut into the truffle mixture. Extras make a lovely host gift too! Recipe on the blog.

12. Chocolate-Almond Espresso Cookies

Rich and perfect for dunking in after-dinner coffee or tea. Dip cooled cookies in melted vegan white chocolate for the ultimate treat. From Oh She Glows Every Day, page 207.

13. Peanut Better Balls

Peanut butter balls were a Christmas treat in my house growing up, and this lightened-up freezer-friendly version is perfect for making ahead before putting together your board. Recipe on the blog and in Oh She Glows Every Day, page 231.

14. Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

My twist on the classic peanut butter cookie. They’re gluten-free and freezer-friendly, too. From Oh She Glows Every Day, page 213.

Cookie board styling ideas:

If you’re looking for some festive styling ideas for your cookie board, feel free to play around with some of the following: fresh cranberries, clementines (bonus points if they have green leaves attached!), greenery (such as lacy cedar), or hand-written labels.

This post wouldn’t be complete without a shout-out to Nicole, OSG’s recipe tester extraordinaire, for all of the baking help. You should’ve seen the truckload of cookies she delivered this week! #cookiemotherlode

Well friends, I won’t be posting again until the new year as I’m working away on the blog redesign and also preparing for a couple TV segments next week (one of which is live on Your Morning on December 19th!). Be sure to follow me on Twitter and Insta Stories for all of my riveting day-to-day updates…heh. And if you have any recipe questions for me, I’ll be on stand-by to help troubleshoot, as always!

Last but not least, I want to wish you all a fantastic holiday season! I’m so grateful for your continued support, friendship, and enthusiasm for what I do. With love and immense gratitude,

Angela xoxo

This is INCREDIBLE. I’ve been excited to make Christmas cookies but this is next level! Love your stuff Angela. I’m making your cinnamon buns for a Christmas brunch we’re hosting tomorrow and can’t wait to eat them. Maybe I’ll need to reassess (and increase) my cookie making time to include some of these ones that I hadn’t considered…

Merry Christmas! xx

Hey Nicole, Oh man, enjoy my buns (wait that didn’t come out right), lol. Such a fun brunch addition. Let me know how it goes!
And happy cookie baking if you add any to your plans.

Reply

7 Nicole December 18, 2017

Hahaha, thanks Angela! Buns turned out perfectly! They were a massive hit. The make ahead option was an awesome way to save time in the morning and to be able to serve them fresh. We also had a version of your happy digestion smoothie (with mango instead of pineapple and no parsley), your smoky and spicy bar nuts, avacado and cherry tomato on baguette, eggnog pancakes (regular vegan pancakes with sugar omitted and holiday nog instead of almond milk), and chia pudding parfaits. We had way to much food (as we always seem to) which meant leftovers for a second brunch for us yesterday!

Hi Angela, love the cookie board – it looks so festive and inviting!!

I just want to thank you for being such an inspiration. Although I’m not a vegan myself I am toying with the idea and have been eating your recipes all week. You make it so easy.. and delicious!! We are so blessed to have someone like you in our lives. I find myself on your blog daily (let’s face it… multiple times per day!).

And yes, the red dots are great.. much appreciated!

Happy holidays to you and your family, Angela. Thank you for all the delicious recipes and drool-worthy pictures you provide.

Oh my goodness, Angela, these pictures are gorgeous! They are merry and bright!

The cookies look (and taste!) so incredibly decadent…I wish I could click on one of the pictures and add it to an online Oh She Glows shopping cart! Deliver to my door for our Christmas feast dessert and I’m all set!

Your Eggnog Crunch Biscotti is my new craving…I’ve been dipping it in coffee, tea, hot chocolate…now that I’ve seen these pics I’ll have to dip half in melted white chocolate and try it that way…yum! I don’t know if it can ever replace my number one fave (your Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies are simply the best cookie ever) but it is my go to treat for this Christmas season!

Time to get baking…

Reply

17 Angela (Oh She Glows) December 16, 2017

I’m such a fan of biscotti too! It’s so satisfying. I was so happy to bring this recipe out of the archives from years ago!

Thanks again for all of your help…couldn’t have done it without you, Nicole! And now some of your cookies will be on live TV on Tuesday…haha…how cool is that?

Reply

18 Nicole W. December 16, 2017

Live TV? How cool is that?!
Well, it’s a little “Agh!” And a bit of “Eek!” And brimming with “How do you do this all the time, Angela?” And, I’m so glad you do!”

You made these cookies so pretty! I love the candied ginger and melted chocolate…and the little crispy rice Christmas trees are adorable :)

Beautiful! I made your flourless peanut butter cookies (with sunflower butter) last night and they are fantastic!
I love your recipes Angela and I must echo other comments about how inspiring your are!! My husband turned vegan around 3 years ago and I followed suit soon after. Your blog has been so vital and I’ve cooked so many of your recipes now I’ve lost count. I also found your blog about freezer meals really useful when I was pregnant.
Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Thanks Dana! It’s pretty fun (that is, once we finally got it working!). I realized last night on mobile devices it wasn’t working properly (the image was majorly cut off on my phone). So Eric worked some magic and now at least you can scroll around the photo on mobile devices. Still some kinks to work out. :)

40 Mary Buzzell December 16, 2017

Oh my goodness. Your board is incredible. However, my favorite part is the behind the scenes pictures! Love the gingerbread boy making a break for it. I make plates for neighbors and they always say “these are so beautiful” and I think of the mess in my kitchen–full of baggies and crumbs and containers. Sometimes even an escapee! Our dog usually grabs those.

Reply

41 Angela (Oh She Glows) December 16, 2017

haha…yes the mess isn’t avoidable, is it? Too bad there wasn’t a way around that. Thanks for the cookie board love, Mary.

This is sooo beautiful and makes me want to bake even more cookies :) Do you have a link for where I can find the sprinkles you dipped your chocolate almond espresso cookies in? Love them!

Reply

43 Angela (Oh She Glows) December 16, 2017

Thanks Cassondra! For the chocolate almond espresso cookies, I used crushed candycane and some festive regular red/green/white sprinkles from a bulk food store. Sadly, they are not the “natural” kind as I couldn’t locate any.

Oops, never mind! They’re the macaroon truffles. :)

Reply

48 Angela (Oh She Glows) December 16, 2017

Thank you so much for the cookbook love Tina!
Yep, you’re right about them being the macaroon truffles! I left out the shredded coconut for this batch and coated them in matcha powder. The matcha is a bit strong, so next time I may mix in some icing sugar into the matcha powder before rolling.

Hi Angela,

Do you have an icing recipe for these cookies??

Reply

68 Angela (Oh She Glows) December 18, 2017

Hey Vicky,
I used a vegan royal icing mix from Bulk Barn for these since I have to transport them into Toronto for a TV segment. But I do have a homemade frosting you can try. The recipe is in the gingerbread cut-out cookies recipe in the app (it’s in the cookie lover’s bundle on the bundles page). I’ll share the proportions below:

2 cups powdered icing sugar
2 tablespoons vegan butter, melted
2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon non-dairy milk, or as needed
pinch fine sea salt

Hope this helps!

Hey Angela, OMG this is amazing! I will make cookies and peanut balls for sure with my 3 year old:) Question: What kind of recipe would your recommend to make cookies with shape-cutters? (like star-shape, tree-shape etc.) Especially gluten-free recipes for that kind of baking are really hard to come by…thank you so much!

Reply

76 Angela (Oh She Glows) December 18, 2017

Hey Rachel, Thanks so much. :)

The only cut-out cookies I have are the gingerbread cut-out cookies found in the cookie lover’s bundle in my app. Unfortunately, they aren’t gluten-free! However, a GF all-purpose flour may work, I haven’t tried it yet. I’ll have to come up with some more!

Hey Johanne, For sure, I used matcha green tea powder! It’s quite bitter, so you can cut it with a bit of powdered icing sugar if desired.

I had an inspiration while reading through the comments (well, actually from reading this gorgeous blog post – breathtaking, Angela!)…I’m going to try the matcha and then dip half the truffle in melted Enjoy Life chips, and roll the other half in crystal sugar. These are beautiful!

Can I just say your effort and craziness/running around during nap time was sooooo worth it!! Your spread looks absolutely amazing and I’m drooling and trying to figure out how soon I can make a bunch of these cookies ha ha ha. I just received the cookbook box set so maybe I’ll try the flourless brownies first :) Also, similar to another person’s comment, I will be making your cinnamon buns this year for Christmas morning, since it is a tradition in my family (Pillsbury’s..) but I’m staying out west for Christmas instead of going home to Ontario this year. Can’t wait!

84 Angela (Oh She Glows) December 18, 2017

Hey Alexa,
You’re so sweet, thank you! Let’s hope these cookies hold up for their trip into Toronto tomorrow!
We’ll be having the cinnamon buns right along with you on Christmas morning…I’m already so excited. Going to make them the day before and just bake in the morning while we open stockings. Mmm…can already smell them now!

I needed one more cookie to round out my xmas baking and I the chewy molasses spelt cookie is IT! I did a trial run yesterday (you know, just to be sure), and these might be my fav cookie of all time! Do they sell the vegan ginger molasses cookies at Whole Foods in Canada? These remind me of those cookies but maybe even better!!! Thanks and Happy Holidays!!

I know you can’t put every recipe on here but I have to tell you my family’s favorite holiday cookie we have tried so far is your peppermint crunch cookie! My kids keep asking when we are going to make those again…which the answer is, in a couple days! Happy holidays!

Hey Karen, Aww that’s so cute your kids keep asking you about that one! So glad you love it. :)

(For anyone wondering it’s in the cookie lover’s bundle in the OSG recipe app)

OMG this looks divine! Those eggnog biscotti are calling my name!! I made your gingerbread people last year and they were a huge hit. Now if only the baby will give me some time to bake :)

Hey Amy, So glad to hear the gingerbread people were such a hit! Enjoy that biscotti if you try it out. It’s a “way back play back” on the blog…haha.

This does not look humanly possible to me! I am impressed with some of the commenters who also get so much cooking done. I would like to try every one of these cookie recipes but at best that would mean one a month. Better to focus on daily meals but this is a goal. These are absolutely beautiful and I’m sure taste even better. Certainly much better than the Christmas cookies customers have had sent or even some home baked. It’s all in the love though! Thank you so much for your blog. Enjoy the holiday1

Thank you so much, Angela – this is such a beautiful post and it is perfectly timed right before the holidays. I’ve read your blog since the beginning and I am so grateful for you! My friends and family rave about your recipes. You are the reason I made the switch to vegan a few years ago. :)

I love the red dot photo feature that tells me what each item is. I was just on another food blog post *WISHING* they had they literally 2 minutes ago, and then you had it!

What do you mean you were on another food blog?! hahaha…jk jk. ;) So happy you love the red button feature! Looks like we’re going to have to do it again soon! I have some fun ideas up my sleeve. Happy baking Tara!

Hi!! I love the red dots hovering over the pic feature! So helpful!!! And easy to click!

I bought my friend one of your cookbooks and I may just have to buy one for myself!

Thank you for keeping it real on your blog!

Hey Kathy, Thank you so much for the red dot feedback…really great to hear it’s been so well received. :)
And my goodness thanks for gifting my cookbook, and for thinking of it in your own house too. That’s the best compliment ever. Have a great holiday!

I set my alarm early, 5:15, to roll out of bed and make cookies this a.m. (don’t judge me! :p). I had bought all of the “normal” (read: non-vegan and glutinous) ingredients and had resigned myself to the fact that I’ll make cookies for others, but won’t be eating any myself.

Just on a whim, I opened OSG…I shoulda known!

I am blown away by the variety. This is the most beautiful spread I have ever seen, and they are healthy!! LOVE the red dots. It makes it easy to navigate which one is where and what I need to print, etc.. Thank you for the timing of this and all of the work you put into your blog, app, cookbooks, etc…I have a safe place to find many GF vegan recipes I know will taste amazing and turn out beautifully.

I’m adding to my spread the Zucchini Walnut Raisin bread, in mini loaf pans, as gifts; and the smoky coconut “bacon” in small treat bags, and your luxurious Sunflower seed butter and pumpkin pie spice mix in small Libby jars. Thank you, thank you Angela!

Now what to do with all that regular butter, flour and sugar? Donate to a food pantry!! :) Merry Christmas to you and your family, Angela, from ours. We are so blessed by your presence.

I was trying to figure out how to reach you to let you know that I was shopping for collectable cookbooks and yours was listed on the one site I was on. I have both of your books but sadly not first editions. This is so wonderful that you are a collectable author! Congrats! I am a faithful follower and will continue to share your blog and emails with my friends and family! https://www.abebooks.com/books/cooking/collecting-cookbooks.shtml?cm_mmc=AMZ-_-Storefront-_-BDEX-_-imagecook

Happy new year, Angela. Hope you had a great holiday season with your family, especially Arlo’s first! Just wanted to reply that I like the red dots and pop up windows. Can’t wait to upgrade my phone to something other than a Windows phone so I can install your app! Also, your one bowl double chocolate chunk cookies are a favorite in our home. Sending best smiles your way.
