Hand your kid seven layer barsa beater and let her lick the bowl clean–no need to consider salmonella. This is vegan baking! In Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, Isa Chandra Moskowitz  and Terry Hope Romero provide vegan versions of every cookie you must make as a parent (chocolate chip, oatmeal, peanut butter, brownies…) and plenty to make when your baking enthusiasm bubbles over (peanut butter chocolate pillows*, seven layer bars*, big, soft coffeehouse hermits…). This little book matches its predecessor, Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, in size and scope. They’re small books that somehow include everything you want and more.

With the complicated karma of animal foods so much on people’s minds, it’s a real treat to table that issue and just have a cookie. And unlike the challenges of gluten-free baking, vegan baking doesn’t require backflips and compromises. Whatever an egg can do to a cookie, flaxseeds and water or soy milk do just as well. But speaking of our gluten-free friends, every recipe is either gluten-free or offers a gluten-free tweak. Moskowitz and Romero are thoughtful like that.vegan-cookies

However you feel about traditional baking ingredients, all true cookie fiends should have this darling book on hand. The need for homemade cookies can strike at any time, even if you’ve run out of eggs during a blizzard.
