Last week I made four different giant vegan single serve cookies and they quickly made their way to the most visited post on my blog–in one week!!! I had no idea you guys would be so into them so thank you for all the support.

I got a few direct messages on Instagram asking for large batch recipes for these four cookies so the first one I decided to work on were these giant vegan birthday cake cookies.

The good news: I already have a FULL batch of my Vegan Chocolate Chunk Cookie. YAY!

Vegan funfetti cookies. Amazing dairy free dessert.

What’s In These Vegan Birthday Cake Cookies

These cookies are super easy to make and they come together rather quickly. The best part about these them (besides the fact that they are delicious) is that they are made without eggs or dairy! Can you believe it?

So here’s what you need to make these funfetti cookies for yourself…

  • ground flax meal (this will act as your egg to bind the cookies together)
  • water
  • vegan butter, softened
  • organic cane sugar
  • vanilla extract
  • all purpose flour or gluten free all purpose baking flour
  • finely ground sea salt
  • baking powder
  • baking soda
  • vegan sprinkles

Pin Recipe
Prep Time10 minutes
Cook Time16 minutes
Total Time26 minutes
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American, vegan
Keyword: birthday cake, chocolate sugar cookies, funfetti cookies, vegan cookies
Servings: 14 cookies
Author: Ciarra Siller

Equipment

  • stand alone mixer or hand-held mixer

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp ground flax meal
  • 3 tbsp water
  • ½ cup vegan butter room temperature
  • ¾ cup organic cane sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cup all purpose flour or gluten free all purpose baking flour
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • pinch sea salt finely ground
  • 3 tbsp vegan sprinkles multi-colored

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F and prepare two baking sheets with parchment paper. Place the flax meal and water into a bowl, stir and then set it aside to gel for about 5 minutes.
  • Use a stand alone mixer and paddle attachment to beat the butter and sugar together until creamy and smooth, about 2 minutes. Add in the flax mixture and beat until well combined and then mix in the vanilla extract.
  • In another bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sprinkles. Add the dry ingredients to the mixer bowl on low speed until the dough comes together.
  • Use a 1 ½ inch cookie scooper to make about 14 cookie dough balls and place them on the baking sheet about 3 inches from each other. Sprinkle the tops with sugar if desired and then bake the cookies for 14-16 minutes and edges just start to brown. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a cool rack to continue cooling.

Notes

These cookies are best if consumed within 2 days. They keep well at room temperature in an airtight container.
Freeze for up to 3 months.

This recipe was amazing, my new favorite cookie recipe! The cookies turned out perfectly crisp on the edges, but soft and chewy in the center just the way I like them! I will definitely be making this recipe again. My husband actually hid them from me because I kept eating them! 🙂

I used up all my sprinkles for these but they’re tasty and really addictive. Thank you for this easy recipe that satisfied my need for sugar cookies and sprinkles without milk or eggs. 🙂 I found the recipe on tumblr, by the way.

Hi, would you recommend taking the pan out and dropping on counter similar to the single serve cookie method? Thank you!

Cookie is pretty tasty! Hit the late night, sugar craving spot. Question. My dough became a brownish color and not a nice light color like yours. I used vanilla paste instead…you think that’s what caused it? Or is it because the brand of sprinkles I used bled? Thanks for the sharing the recipe!

Nevermind. I’m pretty sure the sprinkles bled too quickly. Again such a simple but so yummy cookie!

These tasted great, but they didn’t spread and get thin. They stayed mounded after baking. Any advice?

Cookies in the oven, but the dough is 14/10 so good. Definitely would recommend this recipe. I used mildly less sugar (as I always do), and woah these are amazing. I always know that if I LOVE my dough, the cookies will be amazing, so I decided to just post this before finishing before I forget. Do yourself a favor and make these, if you are a vegan baker, you should have everything on hand already!
-side note, I used a small cookie scoop and the dough made 12 cookies so I’m adjusting my time down. :)))))))) Can’t wait!

Loved this recipe! Had all the ingredients in my cabinet already. I overbaked them slightly by accident but they still came out soft in the center and crispy on the edges! Not too sweet either. So good!

Hi, I was wondering if you’d recommend using pastry / cake flour to make the cookies flat and chewy. I recently bought a couple packs – wasn’t crazy about the weird smell – but also don’t want to waste it. Thoughts?

These are delicious!! So crunchy and chewy at the same time. I used regular German butter instead of vegan and it worked fine. Also put sprinkles in half the batch and chocolate chips in the other half and they both turned out amazing!! However, I liked the original birthday cake cookies better.

I made these for my mom who is dairy free and egg free. She loved them, it’s hard to find something for her to eat so I found this recipe online. She loves it but I wish it was a tad more sweet! Have you ever made these and added candy?

I have been on a Vegan Birthday Cake Insomnia Cookie bender of late and these are an amazing copycat recipe! Thank you for this recipe! This is far cheaper than Insomnia Cookie deliveries and just as good! <3
