  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed meal
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup vegan butter softened to room temperature (I used Country Crock Dairy Free Plant Butter Made With Avocado Oil)
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2  3/4 cups all-purpose flour spoon and leveled
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 batch vegan buttercream frosting
  • Sprinkles for garnish


  • In a small bowl, stir together ground flaxseed meal and water. Set aside in the fridge for 15 minutes. This is our flax “egg”.
  • Place vegan butter and coconut sugar into a large bowl and beat until fluffy.
  • Beat in flax “egg”, vanilla, and almond extract until combined.
  • Add in flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt, and beat until combined.
  • Line 3 baking sheets with silicone baking mats.
  • Use a large cookie scoop to scoop out 21 dough balls — place 7 onto each prepared baking sheet.
  • Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F, then baked the chilled dough balls for 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, cool on the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack.
  • Cool completely before frosting with vegan buttercream frosting!
