‘Tis the season for wearing ugly holiday sweaters, drinking vegan nog, watching Elf, and eating holiday cookies! I love it! Since I’ve pretty much planned your December, let me take it a step forward and give you an easy and delicious recipe for the best cookies!

What I love most about this recipe is that it requires mostly pantry staples. I usually buy my flour, sugar, and other baking items in the Sprouts bulk department. And I took these basic chocolate chip cookies and added a few extra holiday touches. Enjoy!


  • ½ cup of granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup of brown sugar
  • ½ cup vegan butter
  • ¼ cup vegetable or canola oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • ⅛ teaspoon of mint extract (optional)
  • 2 ½ cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of chocolate chip cookies
  • 6 peppermint sandwich cremes, chopped
  • 6 crushed peppermint puffs (or candy canes)


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2

In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, vegan butter, oil, water, vanilla extract, and peppermint extract (if using). I recommend mixing with a handheld electric mixer if you have one. If not, old-fashioned whisking will do the trick.

Step 3

Add flour, baking soda, and salt to the vegan butter mixture and thoroughly combine.

Step 4

Scoop balls of dough (about 2 tablespoons) onto the prepared baking sheet. Press chopped peppermint sandwich cremes and peppermint puffs into the dough.

Step 5

Bake for 10 minutes or until the cookies are golden and crispy around the edges. Allow to cool before eating.
