Thank you to Sprouts for sponsoring this recipe!

‘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!

  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of vegan butter
  • 1/4 cup of vegetable or canola oil
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon of mint extract (optional)
  • 2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips
  • 6 peppermint sandwich cremes, chopped
  • 6 crushed peppermint puffs (or candy canes)


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • 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.
  • Add flour, baking soda, and salt to the vegan butter mixture and thoroughly combine.
  • Scoop balls of dough (about 2 tablespoons) onto the prepared baking sheet. Press chopped peppermint sandwich cremes and peppermint puffs into the dough.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until the cookies are golden and crispy around the edges. Allow to cool before eating.
