I think that this recipe is ideal for those trying to learn how to bake with vegan ingredients. It proves that vegan baking does not need to be difficult or require obscure, hard-to-find ingredients. It proves that delicious, flavourful dairy-free cookies can be made in no time flat!
Melissa is a true inspiration. I always look forward to her posts and follow VeganFling religiously! You should too! You won’t be disappointed :) I am so honoured that Melissa has shared this awesome recipe today on The Fig Tree. I hope she shares another recipe or two on The Fig Tree in the future. It’s been lovely to have her contribute to Vegan Tuesdays. Thanks Melissa! I cannot wait to make this incredible looking cookies!
