How to Make Vegan Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies?  

  • Make flax meal egg by mixing it with water and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes to thicken.

  • Start with melting the vegan butter, make sure you bring it to room temperature before mixing it with other ingredients.  
  • You need to add some organic natural red color to make it look like a red velvet cake. 
  • Mix dry ingredients. You need all-purpose flour, natural unsweetened cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.

  • Make sure you chill the cookie dough for at least 3 to 4 hours. The dough is super sticky and easier to manage once it has been chilled. Sometimes I chill it overnight. Chilled cookie dough is not only easy to handle but also it bakes thicker cookies.  
  •  After chilling, roll the cookie dough into balls, about 1 Tablespoon of dough per cookie.  
  • To form the better crinkles DO NOT press dough balls, they will naturally bake into shape.  
  • Make sure your oven is well hot before putting your cookies. Cookies will be super soft when they come out of the oven and harden as they cool. Let them sit for some time on the baking tray before transferring to a cooling rack. If you bake them for too long, the center will not be fudgy.

Servings 12 Cookies


  • ¾ Cup Sugar
  • ¼ Cup Dairy-free melted butter
  • 2 Tbs Ground flaxseed Mix in 6 Tbs of water
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 1 Tsp Red food Coloring (Use organic natural food coloring)
  • Cup All-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbs Cocoa powder
  • 1 Tsp Baking powder
  • ½ Tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Icing sugar


  • In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed with 6 tablespoons of water. Mix and set aside for at least 5 to 10 minutes.  
  • In another bowl, add sugar and melted vegan butter and stir with a silicone spatula until well combined. Next add the ground flax seed mixture, red food color, and vanilla essence, and mix well to combine.
  • In another, medium-sized bowl, Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.   
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until combined.
  • Cover the bowl with cling wrap and let it sit in the fridge for 3 to 4 hours to let the mixture get firm. You can also leave it overnight.   
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.  
  • Place icing sugar in a small bowl.  
  • Once the dough is chilled and firm, roll it into 1 tbsp balls and then roll in the icing sugar, making sure to coat the balls generously. Make sure you cover all sides. The more powdered sugar, the better the crinkling pattern on the cookies.  
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. They will appear slightly undercooked but will get firm once cooled down. Make sure you don’t overbake them! If you leave them in the oven too long they will end up dry inside.  
  • Once cooled down you will get a crispy outside with a fudge-like center.   
  • Cool on the baking sheet for at least 7 to 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack. Store any extra cookies in an airtight container for a week. 



  • Use canola oil or coconut oil If you can’t find any vegan butter option.  
  • Make sure you leave the dough for at least 3 to 4 hours to get a firm consistency to roll into a ball.  
  • You can make this dough ahead of time and leave it overnight.   
  • Use oil on your hands for rolling the dough so it won’t stick to your hands.
