‘Tis the season to be surrounded by biscuits, cakes, chocolates, mince pies, fudge… a plethora of sugary confections whose allure doesn’t always bode well for our health.
Fortunately, there are loads of amazing recipes for vegan (and often gluten free) versions of holiday favourites. Many of them are still quite sweet, so not something to eat three meals a day, but at least you can feel confident you are treating your body right with plant-based alternatives to commercial Christmas foods.
The following are links to some great recipes — follow them for more ideas!
The warm-spiced winter classic in a delicious, soft, chewy gluten free version.
Classic biscuits, perfect for decorating (especially if you have kids who need a holiday project!) They look great on a plate.
Warm seasonal flavours in this lightly spiced biscuit, and better for you than coffee pumped full of sugar-water.
These have a sophisticated twist, with the pungency of rosemary adding a Mediterranean flair to the tart citrus.
Enjoy the classic British shortbread in a dairy-free version — it makes a great base for desserts with fruit, or accompaniment to a cup of tea.
