Nothing gets me in the Christmas spirit more than peppermint vegan candy candy cane cookies! These fun healthy vegan Christmas cookies are created using natural peppermint flavor, and superfood based food coloring. This healthy candy cane cookie recipe is Vegan, Gluten-free, Oil-free, Refined sugar-free, dairy-free, and whole foods plant based!
There is only a little bit of time left until Christmas, so it is time for the cookies to get a little more festive! These candy cane cookies were a classic in my family growing up. This recipe is inspired by the classic cookie, however these vegan candy cane cookies are much different. First, and most obviously, these cookies are healthy and vegan. I created these plant based Christmas cookies using only whole foods plant based ingredients. I’ve been creating a lot of healthy whole foods plant based Christmas cookies this year, here are some of my favorites:
- Samoa Truffles
- Plant Based Gingerbread Cookies
- Vegan Thumbprint Cookies
- Chocolate Pecan Pretzel Cookies
Natural Plant Based food colorings:
These vegan candy cane cookies contain no artificial ingredients. The bright pink color you see actually comes from Rawnice Pink Pitaya superfood powder. I have talked about Rawnice before, and I am completely obsessed with their products. I love them because their superfood powders are not only free of harmful artificial food colorings, but because they also contain superfoods! Therefore you are eliminating the harmful ingredients while also adding the healthy ingredients. I mean, can you say goals!?
