Vegan Lemon Rosemary Sugar Cookies

Posted by in 1 Bowl Concepts, Cookies, Cooking, Desserts, Easter | 1 comment










Hello & Happy Tuesday!






If you haven’t noticed, I’m all about the 1 bowl concepts. There is something about a hassle free recipe that just calls to me. Once you realize you can cut out steps, it’s hard to embrace traditional recipes again. That being said, we’ve done a myriad of 1 bowl cookies and cakes, because they deliver every time! 

Cookies typically require you to beat butter and sugar together. However you can easily skip this step and just throw in some melted coconut oil or butter. While I love my standing mixer, it can be a pain to clean, so 1 bowl recipes are my favorite!

When thinking of the next best cookie recipe, I knew we had to explore a lemon rosemary. For some the herb/fruit combo may be a new thing leaving you questioning what the final result would be. If there is one thing I stand by with baking, it’s combining fruit and herbs. Herbs just add another dimension of flavor that can’t be replicated with extracts. One of my personal favorite combos, is lemon and rosemary!

To date I’ve done a variety of lemon rosemary recipes, but never a cookie. While I knew this recipe would be a hit, I knew it would also be a miss for many. However, I just couldn’t pass up testing this concept and I’m so glad I did because they came out so good! 



What’s great about this recipe? Everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, packs lemon zest + juice, strong notes of rosemary, require no beating of butter and sugar, no flax eggs, just one bowl, they have a chewy texture, are perfect for any season, and just such a fun modern spin on the classic sugar cookie!

  1. Hi Gabrielle! I found your recipes on instagram and am interested in Natural Liquid Food Coloring. Recently I made some vegan cake balls using a white coating and wanted to color some. I could not find an easily usable vegan food coloring. Is Natural Liquid Food Coloring a brand you use? Where do you purchase at? PS I love your video tutorials. Really add a lot to your blog. Thank you
