  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp organic cane sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. 

  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. 

  3. In a smaller bowl using a handheld mixer, cream together the butter and sugar for 2 min. until creamy. The longer whip time creates more air in the mixture which results in a fluffier texture. Add in the vanilla and applesauce. 

  4. Add wet mixture into dry and mix until a soft dough forms. Whisk together 3 tbsp of sugar and 1 tbsp of cinnamon in a small bowl. Scoop out even amounts of dough using a cookie scoop and roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place evenly on the baking sheet. 

  5. Bake for 12-13 min. Cool for 10 min. before enjoying!
