  • 2 Tablespoons Flax meal
  • 3 Tablespoons Water
  • 1 1/3 Cups Vegan butter, room temperature(I used country crock plant butter)
  • 1 1/2 Cups Organic cane sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Applesauce
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 3 1/2 Cups All purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 3/4 Cup Red and green sprinkles, vegan(I used Sweetapolitas)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees(F).
  • Make a flax egg. In a small bowl, whisk together the flax meal and water. Let sit for 2-3 minutes to thicken. Set aside.
  • Then, in a large mixing bowl, add the vegan butter and cane sugar. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, beat together until light and fluffy.
  • Now add the flax egg you made, the applesauce and the vanilla. Continue to mix together until fully combined.
  • Next, in a medium sized mixing bowl, sift the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Stir in the salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients a little at a time. Mixing with the mixer until everything is fully incorporated. It may seem crumbly as you mix, it will be perfect once everything is fully mixed together.
  • Pour the sprinkles into the bowl with the cookie dough and fold them into the dough.
  • I like to make my cookies large, and I usually do about 2 tablespoons of dough for these cookies, but you can make them a bit smaller if you want. Roll the dough into a ball and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or sprayed with non-stick spray.
  • If they are large place about 3 inches apart, if they are smaller about 2 inches apart. Repeat with all the dough, you will probably need to do several batches.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until they are getting slightly brown. They will still be very light in color and soft.
  • Let cool and serve. They keep well in the fridge for about a week.
