The first Christmas tree decorations consisted of apples, candy canes and pastries in the shape of stars and other designs, so why not take a traditional approach this year and cover your tree in these tasty Vegan Christmas Biscuits!

These plant-based biscuits can be decorated with whatever you like and have to hand but we’ve also supplied an icing method, made with Nutristrength Beet Powder for a pretty pink hue. The Nutristrength Pea Protein Chai Spices Flavour not only gives these biscuits a warm, spiced kick but it also boasts your protein intake for the day, so we can’t imagine they’ll stay on the tree for very long!

Christmas Biscuits Ingredients

1 scoop Pea Protein Chai Spices Flavour

1 cups walnut

1 cup coconut flour

60g vegan butter/coconut oil, room temperature

3tbsp agave

1tsp vanilla bean paste

100ml almond milk

For the Icing

1tsp Nutristrength Beet Powder, powdered natural sweetener, 1 tbsp almond milk

Christmas Biscuits Method

  1. Heat the oven to 170°C.
  2. In a bowl, cream the butter with agave syrup and vanilla. Gradually add all the remaining ingredients and beat until just combined and forms a dough.
  3. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough to around 1/2 inch thick, dip a Christmas cookie cutter into coconut flour so it doesn't stick and cut out your cookies.
  4. Place on the baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown at the edges, turning half way through to ensure even baking.
  5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before decorating.
  6. Sprinkle with powdered natural sweetener or make icing. Enjoy!

To make the icing:

Add the powdered natural sweetener, 1 teaspoon almond milk and beetroot powder to a bowl. Mix together. Add 1 to 2 teaspoons of non-dairy milk or water if needed to reach desired consistency. Let cookies cool completely before decorating.
