Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 10 cookies



  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • ½ cup vegan butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup rainbow sprinkles


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Make your flax "egg" by whisking 1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal with 2 tablespoons of water and put it in the refrigerator to set.
  • Melt the vegan butter in the microwave in 20-second intervals and beat in sugar.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, and salt and mix until combined.
  • With the mixer on low, beat in vanilla and flax "egg".
  • Use a spatula to smooth out the dough and fold in 1 tablespoon of rainbow sprinkles. Add the remaining sprinkles to a shallow bowl or plate.
  • Use clean hands to form dough into balls, using about 1 tablespoon of dough at a time. Take each ball of dough and roll half of it in the bowl of sprinkles to coat them. Set in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes and allow to cool before serving.

Pro Tips

  • Don't skip the 15-minute refrigeration step! It's what gives you thick and chewy cookies.
  • You can make this dough up to two days ahead of time. Just store the dough in the refrigerator and bake them fresh in the oven when you're ready for them!
  • If you are using a chicken egg rather than making a flax egg, just use the yolk!
  • This recipe has been tested with coconut sugar with great results if you wish to cut out the refined sugar.
