These vegan sugar cookies are unexpectedly soft and chewy - perfect for a sweet snack!
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon brown rice syrup
- 1/4 cup almond milk (or cashew milk)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Preheat the oven to 350° F.
- Line two baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the canola oil, granulated sugar, brown rice syrup, nut milk, and extracts until thoroughly combined.
- Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to the bowl. Stir with a wooden spoon until a thick dough forms.
- Form the cookie dough into 20 balls, and place on the lined baking sheets.
- Bake the cookies for 12-13 minutes, until they are just slightly golden brown on the edges, and cracked and puffy on top.
- Remove the baking sheets from the oven. Allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the sheets, then transfer them to cooling racks to cool completely.

Surprisingly good, definitely will make them again. A little crumbly when they first came out of the oven, but when they cool they stay together better.

I cut the sugar in half because I made these for my little kiddos. They were just sweet enough but they ended up being quite crumbly. **Edit** I made these again, this time with 3/4 cup of sugar and the consistency completely changed. They spread quite a bit and turned out chewy.
