Vegan Cookies Invade My Halloween

Happy Halloween! I hope that you had a fun-filled weekend of tricks and treats, we surely did! Steve and I decked out in full costumes and made the rounds to a few costume parties. I dressed up as my favorite monster and Steve was his favorite 80's movie character. What do you think?

C is for Cookie... 1.21 GIGAWATTS!!

I took my role as Cookie Monster very seriously, well, not serious enough to do any singing, however I was armed with homemade vegan cookies at all times. When I was deciding what cookies to make, I turned to the vegan cookie authorities, Isa and Terry, authors of Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar. I picked out four recipes and split up the baking over two days. My selections were varied carefully so that there would be something for everyone, vegan cookies for the masses!



The cookies in my cookie jar were the chocolate fudgy oatmeal cookies, sell your soul pumpkin cookies, lazy samoas, and the peanut apple pretzel drops. Needless to say, I was one popular monster! Everyone had a favorite, and mine were a tie between the fudgy oatmeal cookies and the lazy samoas.

It was my first time baking from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, and the recipes were fun and easy to work with. I am excited to have this cookbook on hand for the upcoming holiday season, the cookiest time of year.

Your turn now, I'd love to hear how you celebrated Halloween!



With less than an hour left in October, I am looking forward to the start of November, the Vegan Month of Food! I am very excited to be participating in Vegan MoFo this year for the first time. Last I heard there are over 500 bloggers signed up to blog about their vegan eats all month long. The goal is to post as often as possible, ideally every weekday for a total of about 20 posts in the month of November. If you are a regular reader of mine, you know that I don't post nearly this frequently, but I am up for the challenge! Come back tomorrow for my kickoff MoFo post. I promise you there are many many delicious things to come.

  1. I think the best part of being Cookie Monster would be all the cookies you would have to bake to really fit the role. These sound delicious!

    Woot woot for Vegan MoFo! Can't wait to see all the good stuff you'll post :P

  8. What a cute costume!! And I love that you brought cookies around with you. AND also the 4 cookies you made are all ones I've been eying in that cookbook... well I've made the chocolate fudgy oatmeal cookies but the white chocolate chips I added were bad so I need to try them again.
