The other day I made a tiramisu with forest fruits and I wanted to use a background that reminds me of the famous “speculoos” cookies. Except that, by looking more closely at the label of these famous biscuits I could not buy them. There was palm oil, butter powder (wtf ?!), colorants, refined sugars, preservatives and a lot of messy stuff that started with E…
Well, it’s a shame to have all these bad ingredients in a good homemade dessert made with love !
But each problem has its solution, as they say. I suggest you go into the kitchen to bake nice little vegan cookies, easy to make and super fragrant.
The first thing to do is to prepare your spice mixture according to what you like. In my little spice mill I ground cinnamon +++, ginger +++, nutmeg ++, cloves + and star anise +. It smells so good! We’re gonna use this base to flavor our spicy biscuits.
These little spice biscuits are delicious to eat as is at tea time or you can crumble them to accompany a compote for example, or use them as a base for a homemade tiramisu! A delight !

Small vegan cookies with spices.
- 100g vegan butter, room temperature
- 100g complete cane sugar
- 130g of semi-white flour
- 3 tbsp cinnamon powder
- 3 tbsp gingerbread’s spices
- Preheat the oven to 180 ° C.
- In a bowl, whisk together margarine and sugar until creamy.
- Add the flour and spices, mix and finish with hands to form a beautiful ball. Let cool 10 minutes.
- Spread dough over 2mm thick on a clean and lightly floured baking tray.
- Cut the shapes of your choice using a cookie cutter and place them on a baking sheet.
- Bake between 12-16min. The cookies are ready when the outside becomes colored.
I advise you to avoid using coconut margarine which has too much taste for this recipe.
You can make your own spice mixture by mixing cinnamon +++, ginger +++, nutmeg ++, clove + and star anise +.
If you want to give more character to your cookies, I suggest you try with a pure cane sugar like Jacutinga from Brazil. Success guaranteed!
You can crumble them and add on the top of your favorite compote.
