06 Dec The Big Cookie Post

Share this story

Two commercials and a holiday movie reminded me about the plate of cookies, glass of almond milk and the carrots we put out for Santa and his reindeer.  A holiday party with plates and plates of cookies did too.  I don’t bake much, as I am apt to eat the whole batch of cookies – all by myself 🙂

This is the time of year that I make a few batches of sweet treats though, as there are always friends or family around to share them with.  If you have been looking for some plant-strong options this year, you’ve come to the right place!  We hope that you find a new family favorite among the recipes here.

Thanks to all of the bloggers, recipe lab scientists and creative folk who have created these gems!

Our favorite cookie is from our book, Plant-Strong: Discover the World’s Healthiest Diet – Banana Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies
