Below is a list of my 12 favorite Christmas recipes I've shared over the years. There are Christmas cookies, breakfast dishes, and appetizers. All recipes are plant-based, some are dairy-free, some vegan, and all gluten-free!
Gluten-Free Christmas Recipes
These are my absolute favorite twelve Christmas recipes I can't wait to make this year. All of them are gluten-free and most are vegan too.
Christmas Spice Blend
What's better than gingerbread spice? This Christmas Spice Blend! It's my favorite spice and I add it to anything and everything I can in the winter months. Czech Gingerbread Spice Blend is different than American gingerbread spice and this is my version of that.
Gluten-Free Czech Gingerbread Cookies
These Gluten-Free Czech Gingerbread Cookies are an old family favorite and something we make every single year. They're very different from your usual American gingerbread cookies. They're sweetened with honey and are packed with lots of a lot of warming winter spices. They're dairy-free, gluten-free, and can be made refined sugar-free too!
Vanilla Walnut Crescent Cookies
These Vanilla Walnut Crescent Cookies are one of the most popular Czech Christmas cookies and they're on our table each and every year. They need to rest for at least a few days but once they do, they're so soft and so delicious. You'll definitely enjoy these!
Gluten-Free Linzer Cookies
These gluten-free linzer cookies are the perfect treat for Christmas but you can also make them any time of the year with different shapes. They make a great edible gift! Made with a gluten-free flour blend and a few other simple ingredients. These are some of the simplest cookies you could make! Keep it simple with one shape or get creative with various ones!
Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge Bites
These Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge Bites are vegan truffles and you definitely need to make them this holiday season! You only need 3 ingredients for these and they're all pantry items! Dates, cacao powder, and hazelnuts. The hazelnuts are roasted and processed to almost hazelnut butter so the result is somewhere between cookie dough and fudge. So incredibly delicious!
Chocolate Gingerbread Oatmeal
If you're looking for a simple festive Christmas breakfast, look no further. This Chocolate Gingerbread Oatmeal is really easy to make, it's vegan, gluten-free, and so delicious! It has so many warming winter spices thanks to the Christmas Spice Blend (Czech gingerbread spice) that I used.
Vegan Peppermint Hot Chocolate
This delicious Vegan Peppermint Hot Chocolate is the perfect hot drink for the holidays! Enjoy this warming cup of creamy hot chocolate this Christmas. It's super easy to make, sweetened with maple syrup, and served with vegan whipped cream.
Vegan Eggnog Mocha
This Eggnog Mocha is what dreams are made of... no really, it's so good! It's perfectly creamy, sweet, and chocolatey. This delicious drink is made with vegan eggnog, cold-brew coffee, and raw cacao powder.
Christmas Spiced Hot Chocolate
This Christmas Spiced Hot Chocolate is truly the best hot chocolate I've ever made! Fully vegan, so creamy, and not overly sweet. It's the perfect drink for cozy nights in watching Christmas movies.
Tangerine Chocolate Chia Pudding
This Tangerine Chocolate Chia Pudding is the perfect breakfast for the winter. The perfect combination of sweet and tangy, and refreshing and creamy. It's so easy to make and a great way to switch things up if you're tired of making the same breakfast every day.
Gingerbread Quinoa Porridge with Toasted Coconut
This delicious Quinoa Porridge is made with quinoa, plant-based milk (I like almond), and warming Christmas spices. Super creamy, fully vegan, gluten-free, and so filling!
Cranberry Oat Cookies
These cookies are soft, chewy, not overly, sweet, and completely vegan, and gluten-free! They're the perfect Christmas cookie that you can actually snack on. Definitely, a must-try for anyone who likes cranberries,
Which one is your favorite recipe? Are you excited to try any of them? My favorites are probably the gingerbread cookies or the Christmas hot chocolate. Those are really delicious, especially together! I also can't forget the Christmas mix with all the best winter spices. It's so good, you'll want to put it on everything sweet.

Jessica @ ThatOddMom.com
My youngest daughter requested chocolate pancakes for Christmas morning but I think I'm going to have to convince her that your gingerbread version is the way to go!
That's a hard decision haha. How about some gingerbread pancakes with chocolate sauce? I'd be down for that!
I think those chocolate hazelnut bites are calling my name!
Can't blame you! lol Those are the absolute best<3
Looking forward to trying the gingerbread granola and cranberry oat cookies.
Yay! You'll love them! :)

In general, I am usually the "Healthy Christmas food? Bah humbug!" kind of person, but I have to say that ALL of these recipes look absolutely delightful and I would happily eat every one! And where did you get the adorable molds for those fudge bites? So cute!!
Haha thank you, Jodie! I got those from a local store here in the Czech republic but I'm sure you can find similar ones online :)
