Keepin’ it Kind Holiday Cookie Exchange, Brookie Grasshopper Squares

It’s Cookie Party time!

The darling Kristy over at Keepin it Kind is hosting a vegan cookie exchange party for the holiday season with cookies from her favorite bloggers. I’m not only in love with this idea, but I’m the lucky girl that’s first in the line up. This little treat I have for you I thought was gonna be a cookie square. But somehow it came out softer and more like a brownie, or a “brookie” which was fine by me! I hope you love these as much as I do! Head on over to Kristy’s site to get the gluten free (optional), egg free, dairy free, soy free and nut free recipe, however these are NOT sugar free or fat free, but I think you’ll forgive me! Just click on the link below:

Now for a word about Kristy:

This lovely girl is a former fromagier gone vegan. Her passion for food and animals will warm your heart and your belly. She was pivotal in my inspiration to go solo as a blogger and even gave me all kinds of amazing advice when I wasn’t sure  exactly how to set up my new blog. Follow her over at Keepin it Kind, you’ll be in love with every post and dish!


    1. Oh. my. gosh. I know you’d have to make adjustments to these because I went whole hog, but they were OH SO GOOD! Seriously no GF aftertaste. 🙂

    1. I used to use egg replacer in my cookies or brownies, funny that it’s not really necessary, I wonder if there are any dates left, I’d love to see you on this exchange!

  1. These sound delicious!! Love all the icing on top…they must be really rich. I’ve never had to use xantham gum in my GF baking..I just use natural ground flaxseed and it works fabulous. The xantham gum upsets my hubby’s tummy unfortunately anyway 😦
    I will need to try these using flaxseed! I’ll let you know how they turn out! Thx for the yummy recipe!

    1. I’ve never tried GF baking without xanthan, but I’d love to see if flax works instead in this recipe. Please let me know if you try it. As I said, I’m a novice and GF baking is still really foreign, I thought gluten free and vegan baking = xanthan gum as a must 😉

  2. Thank you so much for the kind words, Somer- I have a little lump in my throat now. Thanks again for participating in the cookie party and sharing such an incredible looking recipe- I can’t wait to make it. 🙂

    1. Ah, Kristy! So lucky to have you as a friend. Seriously girl, you’re incredible and I love your guts. I keep getting requests for this one again from the kids. I keep holding off because I’m the one who ends up finishing off the pan 😉

  3. I was so excited to see that you were kicking off the cookie party Somer! What a great addition to the swap…..I think I may need to sneak a couple extra in my take home cookie box 🙂

    1. You can take as many as you want 😉 I loved your Noel cookies too. So melty and delicious, I love Mexican wedding cookies and yours looked even better.
