Vegan Spiced Cookies Recipe

My vegan spiced cookie recipe is also a gluten free cookie recipe.

These spiced cookies taste wonderful. The spices are a perfect blend and compliment the cherries and raisins so very well.

The texture of my vegan spiced cookies are a mixture of soft and chewy.

These cookies use no butter, eggs or wheat and still taste fabulous.

Ingredients for Egg Free and Gluten Free Spiced Cookies
5oz Rice flour
4oz Light brown sugar
100ml Rapeseed oil
1 tsp Baking powder
4 Tbsp Soya milk
2oz Raisins
2oz Glazed cherries
1oz Cornmeal flour (fine polenta)
1/4 tsp Xanthan gum
1/4 tsp Cinnamon powder
1/4 tsp Aniseed powder
Pinch mace
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 Tbsp Agave syrup
1 Tbsp Cornflour (corn starch)

How to make Chef Jeenas Vegan Spiced Cookies

Add the rest of the ingredients and mix very well.

Cover and place into the fridge for 1-2 hours.

Grease and flour a baking tray.

Place teaspoons of the cookie mixture onto the tray.

You can slightly flatten the mixture using your fingers.

Cook in a hot oven at 180C for 7-10 minutes, remove from the oven and press the cookies flat using the back of a spatula.

Place back into the oven for another 5-8 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove straight from the oven tray onto a cooling rack using a spatula.

Ow vegan cookies! I haven't ever used rice flour- can you taste a big difference between that and AP/whole wheat?

Hi Erica,

Yes there is a big difference in taste and texture.

The reason a lot of my vegan baking recipes use other flours is because I cook most of my baking gluten free when I cook for vegan friends. :-)

Man your vegan cookies look so darn good!
You need to market yourself to Whole Foods. There are some vegan cookies that I wouldn't touch with a 10-foot pole, but yours, wow. Yours look insanely good.
I need to start baking with rice flour..I've many great things about it as well as the agave syrup.
