This recipe was given to me by a friend when I was starting to cook for my boyfriend (now husband) with food allergies. I used her original written recipe so often I had to post it here so I wouldn't lose it before it became unreadable (Thanks, K!) These don't last long around our house! Try substituting lime for some of the lemon!

I'm so glad these came up when I googled "Vegan Lemon Cookies." I wanted something easy, fast, and lemony and this fit the bill perfectly! I only made 1/4 of the recipe, which gave me 9 med/large cookies. I also replaced 1/3 of the oil with unsweetened applesauce. I may try reducing the sugar a bit next time. I needed to bake them for 12 minutes and they came out chewy wih a little crunch on the lightly-browned bottoms. The lemon taste was very prominent, which is great. Lots of thanks to the recipe poster!

These cookies are AMAZING!!! I pretty much just followed the recipe and they turned out fantastic. Only thing I did differently was to replace a third of the oil with applesauce and use a little less zest than indicated. Although my teeny, tiny, temperamental studio oven bakes really unevenly and some cookies ended up a little more well done than the others, they all turned out to be delicious! I put a little store bought icing on them and that was great but they are scrumptious and plenty sweet without icing. Thanks for a great recipe!

Great recipe! I only used 1 cup of sugar and will probably only use 3/4 cup next time. A review above suggested less sugar and I am glad I read that. I also replaced a 1/4 cup of regular flour with coconut flour. These were really good!! Thanks for sharing!!
