Sometimes, it’s the simplest cookies that you just need the most. When I was thinking about what recipe I wanted to make this week, I really was having trouble thinking of something unique. But then, I realized, all I really wanted at the moment was sprinkles. Sprinkles make any dessert better. This is why I decided to make these very simple, yet amazingly delicious Vegan Soft Sprinkle Cookies. And trust me, they turned out way better than I thought. They were incredibly soft and chewy, with a slight crunch on the outside. The perfect cookie.
The only allergy substitute I used was the butter. I used Earth Balance butter sticks which come in vegan and soy-free. For the egg, I simply used applesauce. I find that applesauce is sometimes the easiest way to get your cookie soft and chewy. Also, make sure to look for allergy-safe sprinkles! Otherwise, this recipe can be made completely vegan and completely soy-free!
Sprinkles are just the best way to make any dessert 100 times better. Unless you’re not a sprinkles person, in which case: what do you mean you’re not a sprinkles person?!?!?! I don’t believe it. I refuse to accept it. Everyone is a sprinkles person.
I hope you love these Vegan Soft Sprinkle Cookies as much as I did. They are light, chewy, and so so soft. I loved them so much and so did my family!

- 2 ¼ c all-purpose flour
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp fine kosher salt
