Funfetti Vegan Sugar Cookies

A vegan twist on the classic sugar cookie loaded with sprinkles for a little fun. Soft and sweet and made in just 1 bowl!

I have made three batches of these Funfetti Vegan Sugar Cookies this week and Zach can’t keep his hands out of the cookie jar. He is 100% against any healthy baked goods or food in general so when I told him these were vegan well he turned his nose up. That is until he saw the sprinkles!

Many people are trying to eat a more plant-based diet or go full vegan and while I am not vegan I love many vegan recipes. My son… leaned in, smelt the cookies, took the tiniest bite, paused and then said: “they are all right”. In his terms that means great! And judging by how many of these funfetti vega sugar cookies he has eaten this week I know he loves them.

Ingredients you will need:

  • 1 3/4 cups pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup butter flavoured refined coconut oil or vegan butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flaxseed, 3 tbsp water)
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles

What is a flax egg?

A flax egg is a substitution that can be used in many recipes to replace an egg. To make one add 1 tbsp of ground flaxseeds to 3 tbsp of water, stir and let sit for 5 minutes. When flax seeds get wet the outer layer forms a gelatin-like shell which created a texture similar to egg whites and works in much the same way. Binding ingredients together.

With the kids being home because of the pandemic and looking for things to do why not bake or learn to cook. There really couldn’t be a better time to pass on family recipes and make positive memories. Baking is a great way to keep them busy!

Here are some of the recipes I have made with my kids over the years that are simple to make and always a favourite:
