There’s nothing better than those treats you have every holiday season with your family. Maybe it’s a recipe passed down through the ages, or maybe it’s just something you’ve enjoyed making the last few years, holiday recipes just bring that extra yum to home comforts. Maybe it’s your favourite nog while you decorate the tree or the cookies you’re baking to swap with your friends. We asked our Rocky staff for their fave home holiday recipes.

I have a dynamite granola recipe that I love to make, gluten free, dairy free, everything free, but delicious :)

One of my favourite go-to recipes for Christmas has been a Vegan Sticky Gingerbread Cake with Cardamom Poached Pears that I found a few years ago on SPUD.ca. I love that it's vegan, super simple, strikes the right balance between spices, isn't overly sweet and doesn't require any electric mixers!
You can also make this in a cupcake tray—if you're doing this, I would halve the length of time the cake is in the oven to keep it moist and "sticky". Pair with a vegan vanilla ice cream and this is sure to be a household favourite.

My mom makes this shortbread every year. It’s her grandmother’s recipe! My mom wrote this out for me to share.
