These cookies are like taking everyone’s add-ins and packing them in a simple, compact, magical treat. Completely vegan & gluten-free
Compost cookies, monster cookies, garbage cookies…we may not agree on its name, but you all will agree that these cookies are AMAZING! Sweet + salty + oaty + minty + nutty + gooey = OMG!
Have you seen the Cornflake-Chocolate Chip-Marshmallow cookies created by Chrisina Tosi, chef/owner of Milk Bar. I first
drooled over saw them on the Food Network and then was tempted once again when she made them on Martha Stewart. All I knew was that I needed this cookie but had to recreate them, making a cookie that was allergy-friendly too.
Our compost cookies are a hodgepodge of several ingredients that come together so deliciously that you’ll wonder why you never ate all of them together before. These treats are loaded with:
- Free2b’s Peppermint Snack Breaks (top 12 free)
- White Chocolate Chips (Pascha makes delicious vegan chips)
- SunButter (keeping this nut-free too)
- Oats (gluten-free)
- Rice Krispie cereal (gluten-free also)
- Marshmallows added in our second batch (we use Dandies which are vegan, but they do have soy).
Compost Cookies using Free2B
Aren’t sure about all these ingredients? That’s ok. Leave some out, replace with others, load it up with all your favorites. Since I was making these for the holidays, I used Free2B’s Snack Breaks in their Dark Chocolate Peppermint flavor. They also have Blueberry Crunch & Cranberry Pumpkin Seed which would a fun way to change things up, depending on the time of year you’ll be making these. OR….stick with chocolate chips, because you can’t go wrong with a classic.
Chill Baby, Chill
The great thing about this recipe is it is super easy. There is a bit of chilling time, but totally worth it & necessary if you don’t want it all to melt together. Just make sure to roll the dough into balls and then chill them. I tried it the other way around, but quickly found out that rolling dough balls before they are chilled, is SO much easier.
Then bake and get ready for the “oohs and awe’s”. Making a batch of vegan compost cookies are the perfect way to bring this year to a close and ring in the New Year. It’s like a gathering of all your favorite cookies, all rolled into one! Time to get the party started.
