Gluten-Free Adjustments to the Red Velvet Valentine Cookie Recipe

It’s easy to make this recipe gluten-free by simply replacing all-purpose flour with a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend. If you want to make sure your cookies are extra-special, try substituting some almond flour for a fourth of the all-purpose flour. To further fill out the flavour profile, use a gluten-free substitute for cocoa powder as well. Lastly, don’t forget to check the label on your baking powder, as certain brands can contain gluten.

Vegan Adjustments to the Red Velvet Valentine Cookie Recipe

Making these cookies vegan is easier than you think! Start by replacing the butter with a vegan butter substitute. At the same time, replace egg yolks with flaxseed eggs and milk with a vegan milk alternative. If desired, add a teaspoon of white vinegar to help the cookies rise. You can also use a vegan dark chocolate for a special touch of flair. For the best results, use a vegan recipe for red velvet cake or cupcakes, and simply turn them into cookies by rolling them into balls and pressing them slightly before baking.
