They also make fantastic gifts, perfect holiday treats for family and friends alike who aren’t vegan.

Tahini Almond Cookies

Not only are these cookies vegan and gluten-free, but they’re also super healthy! Tahini is an excellent source of protein that will keep you satisfied, while the natural sweetness from coconut palm sugar makes for a wonderful treat.

They come out crispy on the outside with chewy centers filled with delicious flavors.

Raspberry Hazelnut Cake

This cake is not only vegan and gluten-free, but it also contains healthy ingredients like almond flour, coconut oil, and unsweetened cocoa powder. It’s super moist due to raspberries, which help keep this desert light instead of heavy or dense. The hazelnut buttercream icing on top adds just enough sweetness without overpowering the natural flavors found in this beautiful desert.

Raw Cookie Dough Truffles

These raw vegan cookie dough truffles take the cake (or, in this case, no-bake balls). They’re made with cashews and dates for that classic cookie dough flavor, while grapeseed oil adds richness.

Pistachio Rosewater Ice Cream

Rosewater might not be an everyday staple in your pantry but trust me when I tell you it’s worth the purchase because it really gives this ice cream dessert a unique twist! The rosewater ice cream itself has hints of pistachio and cardamom, while the fresh raspberries give it a pop of color on top. It also has a pistachios top, so there’s some crunchy texture which is always nice.
