Looking for holiday cookie inspiration? Check out my roundup of over 60 Gluten Free and Dairy Free Christmas Cookies, with plenty of vegan and nut free options!
Hey friends! Since Christmas is just a week away, I decided to create another recipe roundup for some amazing gluten free and dairy free cookies!
One of my other allergy-friendly cookie roundups is a big hit around the holidays, but since it’s a couple years old I wanted to share some new recipes with you since we’re always adding new recipes throughout the year.
Every cookie in this round-up is gluten free and dairy free, and most are also soy-free, with many vegan, grain free, and nut-free cookies, too (my nut free label doesn’t include coconut). Some of these cookies that do contain nuts can use substitutes like SunButter, so check them all out!
