Top 5 Plant-based Cookies for Cookie Exchanges

Holiday cookie exchanges are a clever way to taste the widest variety of cookies possible, without having to spend your entire holiday season baking and buying ingredients.

These cookie recipes are so tasty that it will hardly be noticeable that you’ve snuck in ingredients that are good for you.
