I’m not so sure about the popularity of this kind of christmas cookie in other countries but in Germany everybody is familiar with so called ‘Cinnamon Stars’. And everybody loves them. They have a distinct nutty flavour paired with generous amounts of cinnamon in the batter and an irresistable sugar coating on top.

Today I’m sharing my recipe with you. It’s fully vegan and a LITTLE lower in fat than conventional cinnamon star recipes. As always, used a healthy sweetener (coconut sugar) and a healthy, gluten-free flour (buckwheat flour). Original recipes don’t contain buckwheat flour but I think it’s nice to hide some undiscoverable nutrition in everything.

This recipe is also good for when you want to prove to omnivores that vegan biscuits taste exactly the same as biscuits with animal products. In my opinion there’s no difference in flavour. Perhaps these ones are a little less sweet than the ones you can purchase in stores and at christmas markets but I consider that a very positive thing. These ones are sweet enough! Especially with the sugar icing.

Curious already?

Let’s get baking!
