Vegan Red Velvet Cookies with Cream Cheese Filling

Can you think of anything better than Red velvet Cookies with cream cheese filling? No? It doesn’t stop there; they are vegan too! YES, IT’S POSSIBLE!  Delicious, soft, center-filled red velvet cookies topped with white chocolate chips, it’s a dream come true! 

Red velvet flavor is one such flavor that can be introduced in any dessert, be it cake, puddings, brownies, or cookies. I love the classic pairing of red velvet with cream cheese. But the addition of white chocolate takes it to new heights. Making these cookies vegan was all the more challenging but not impossible. Relish these cookies anytime you like! 

Why You’ll Love This Recipe? 

  • Classic flavor: I have ensured that the authenticity of the red velvet flavor remains intact in the cookies. 
  • Two-in-one cookie: Although these are center-filled cookies having cream cheese filling, however, if you want, you can make these without the filling, making them red velvet white chocolate cookies. 
  • Unique: Red velvet is not a unique flavor anymore, but it’s still something new in the cookie category. Not many bakers or even bakeries sell red velvet cookies, which are vegan, so it’s a plus for your menu! 

Important Ingredients Used In The Recipe

  • Red food color: There are numerous types of colors available, like liquid, powder, and gel. I recommend using gel food colors as they are more concentrated and vibrant. 
  • Vegan cream cheese: apart from regular dairy-free products like milk, butter, and chocolate, this recipe includes vegan cream cheese. I have used homemade cream cheese here; you may use any brand’s cream cheese available in your city.
  • White chocolate chips: adding white chocolate chips on top of the cookie makes the cookie more delicious and compliments the red velvet flavor.

How To Make Vegan Red Velvet Cookies

  • Mise-en-place: Gathering all your ingredients before starting with any recipe is important. Preheat your oven to 180C (OTG mode: upper rod + lower rod + fan). Line a baking tray with butter paper or a silicon mat. 
  • Make the filling: Start by making the filling first, as they need to freeze for at least an hour. So mix cream cheese and icing sugar until the sugar dissolves. Transfer the filling to a piping bag. Place butter paper on a baking tray and pipe blobs of filling on the butter paper weighing approximately 10g each. Put the tray into the freezer. 
  • Creaming: for the cookie, cream butter, and sugars until light and fluffy. 
  • Wet Ingredients: Add soy milk, red gel color, and vanilla essence to the creamed butter mixture. Give this a stir. 
  • Dry Ingredients: Sieve dry ingredients like flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Add them to the butter-milk mixture and combine. 
  • Freeze: the dough will be sticky, so it must be kept in the freezer for some time. 
  • Shaping: once the dough is workable, take 40g and make a ball. Press it a little and place frozen cream cheese filling on it. Wrap and seal the dough around the filling nicely. Repeat the same with the rest of the dough. 
  • Garnish: place the cookies on a lined baking tray and sprinkle some vegan white chocolate chips on top to garnish. 
  • Freeze: put the tray in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  • Bake: bake the cookies at 180C for (OTG mode: upper rod + lower rod + fan) 15 to 18 minutes.

Chef’s Tips For The Recipe

Freeze the dough

Since the dough is sticky, you must freeze the dough before you start shaping. You can also wear gloves while shaping the dough.

White chocolate 

If you cannot find vegan white chocolate chips, you can chop vegan white chocolate bar and put chunks. 

How to store Vegan Red Velvet Cookies

Store baked cookies in an airtight box at room temperature. 

Cling-wrap any leftover cookie dough and store it in the freezer for up to 2 months.

“I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date”
Before this program I knew a little about manifestations, but as I discovered during the program, I had a lot of limiting beliefs that kept me from fully embracing and accepting myself as a manifestor.
During this program I became more aware of what manifestation is and how powerful I am. I become more aware of my guides, of my highest self and that I can pull the best of my highest self into my present. Since this program I no longer wrestle with trying to convince myself that what I desire will happen. I know that it has happened, it is done and it is mine, here and now. I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date, my eyesight has improved and I no longer need glasses for distance vision, only for reading, I gave myself a make-over as part of my commitment to my renewal and I began to de-clutter my space.

“My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes”
Joining “The Art of Manifesting” was a life-changing decision for me. This is now the third time going through the quest and focusing on different areas of manifestation.
Regan is a powerful guide and she walks the talk.
This 28-day journey was a blend of practical techniques and profound energetical activations. I learned to visualize my goals clearly, expand my possibilities, and overcome the limitations holding me back from living a life i desire. The quest’s unique approach to identity hacking helped me align my inner self with my aspirations, making the manifestation process more effective and authentic.
The biggest takeaway for me was the acceleration of manifestation by bending time and tapping into the highest frequencies. The techniques taught in the quest enabled me to see results much faster than I expected. My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes, and goals that once seemed unattainable are now within reach.
I’m beyond grateful for the wisdom and tools I’ve gained from this quest and Regan. It’s not just about manifesting; it’s about transforming your entire lifestyle. I highly recommend “The Art of Manifesting” to anyone looking to turn their dreams into reality.

“This course and listening to Regan’s podcasts gave me the tools to acknowledge my blocks and mindsets around drinking”
I have so enjoyed this journey with Regan, I am a new person as a result of this quest. I now have new beliefs & mindsets that I keep working on daily, hourly. A kinder and more compassionate version of me has emerged over this journey, and I love her!
This quest has resulted in me finding the lost me, the me that has been hidden under the voices of doubt, fear or just lack of awareness that I get to run my life not the other voices in my head or family and people around me. When we wire ourselves to the future version of us, then we make different choices and we are already a different person!
Thank you Regan, thank you Mindvalley, thank you tribe!!!! ❤❤, I love you all and wish you a magical Christmas and hope our paths may cross one day at Mindvalley events.

“My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest”
Before taking this Quest I believed that the prerequisites of success were hard work, long hours, timing and a degree of luck; “1% inspiration and 99% perspiration” was my mantra. Trying to achieve success with this mindset was exhausting, frustrating and unsustainable.


I then discovered The Art of Manifesting … and was blown away.


The foundational teaching of focusing on your inner world to achieve has been transformative in the way I live my life. I now know that cultivating the feeling of already being in possession of that which you want, accelerates the manifestation of what you desire.


My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest, and have discovered a path to manifest greater abundance in the year to come. But perhaps the biggest shift I experienced during this quest now knowing that I am worthy and deserving of abundance. Regan, I am eternally grateful to you, thank you :-)

“Now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered”
Before this program, I believed somewhat in manifestation but never knew how to do it, or if it was real, and the little bit I did know ended up being completely wrong! This Quest has not only taught me how to manifest and put me on the path to doing it the right way, but I was actually able to manifest what I had set at the beginning.
I never thought it would actually come true, but I committed myself to the process and gave it 100% every day. And now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered. It’s truly blowing my mind.
I had a financial goal for the end of the Quest, and different opportunities for selling my artwork started coming up, and the deals are coming out almost to the exact number I had set.
Not only that, but I have truly transformed into a better version of myself in these short weeks, more than I had in the last few years, that my spouse has even noticed.
I’m so excited for what’s to come next and so grateful for this program. Thank you.

“I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design”
I joined Mindvalley on New Year’s 2023. I am excited to share how life has significantly changed in the first 90 days of the year. Beginning with the Silva Method, I envisioned and transformed a dysfunctional personal relationship, into a loving, caring separation, allowing me the peace and serenity to follow my path, and my partner to choose his. In February while on the Art of Manifesting Quest I listed my intent to have a book written by May 2023, and have a speaking engagement booked by December 2023.
I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design, and a journal for Women seeking a deeper connection with themselves, also in design. Both will be uploaded via KDP Amazon self-publishing by May 1st.
I have booked a speaking engagement for May with the intent of having published books with me for sale.
Most importantly – this morning I changed my profile from ‘Document writer’ to ‘Author.’
Gratitude abounds!!!
