We’re approaching the end of Veganuary, which means you deserve a treat! Whether this was your first time trying out veganism, you’re a well versed vegan, or you just love a good recipe, these cookies are definitely the best way to celebrate your dedication.
Although veganism is definitely one path towards a healthier diet, it is not only veg and salads - you definitely can enjoy some delicious and not-so-healthy treats and still stick to your vegan diet! These cookies are a personal favourite. This recipe is super easy, requires only one bowl, and is flexible for adding in any extra fillings you so desire - I would definitely recommend chopped walnuts or raisins for a twist.
Best served with a cup of tea on a cold afternoon, these cookies are exactly what everyone in St Andrews and the local area needs right now!
