If you like chocolate and vanilla, you can get both in these Vegan Black and White Cookies. I made them using my favorite non-dairy chocolate. The cookies had a crunchy and delicious flavor. These would be a nice dessert to serve to family and guests, or even at your next cookout.

Vegan Black and White Cookies
3/4 Cup of vegan butter substitute
1 Cup of coconut sugar
1 Tablespoon of vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon of unsweetened rice milk
2 and 1/2 Cups of gluten-free flour @bobsredmill
1/4 Teaspoon of Himalayan
1 1/4 Cup of organic confectioners sweetener (or you can use a sugar substitute powdered sugar also)
2 1/2 Tablespoons of lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
1/2 to 1 Cup of chocolate chips (nondairy), Lily’s
1-2 Tablespoons of coconut oil
-Preheat the oven to 350F degrees.
-In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment cream the butter substitute and coconut sugar. Then add the vanilla extract, rice milk and salt. Once that is incorporated, slowly add the gluten-free flour blend. Make sure your gluten-free flour blend does not include xanthan, you want these cookies nice and flat. That makes them easy to frost.
-Very lightly flour a clean, flat surface with some powdered sugar. Roll the dough until it’s 1/2 inch thick.
-Use a round cookie cutter, and cut out the cookies. The dough is still fragile, then move to a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
-Add the cookies to a preheated oven and bake for 8 – 10 minutes, or until the edges are slightly brown. Then transfer to a wire rack to cool, then begin to make the glaze.
-In a small bowl, mix together vanilla icing ingredients and in double boiler melt the chocolate and coconut oil until combined and smooth. Add to the chocolate to a bowl you can dip the cookie in.
-To frost cookies, start with white icing and only frost half of the cookie. Then frost the other half of the cookie with the chocolate frosting. Add to a baking sheet with parchment paper. Let the glaze set then enjoy!
