Vegan Sugar Free Chocolate Rum Cookies

I love cookie swaps. They’re so fun. You show up with cookies of one kind and leave with cookies of a bunch of different kinds. I actually did one cookie swap with friends in December, signed up for one that Kathy planned, but ended up not being able to go, planned on the blogger swap last weekend that I also couldn’t attend, AND, signed up to do an online swap. Yea, like I said, I like cookie swaps.

I enjoy doing online swaps because you’re sending and receiving a bunch of one kind of cookie! I have participated in steph chow‘s jam exchange in the past, so when she said she was going to do a cookie exchange, I instantly signed up.

My partner in cookie-ing is Sarah. She’s vegan so I set out to find a vegan cookie recipe. I actually had a hard time finding something that looked good to me that was vegan that also wouldn’t require me to purchase some ingredients that I would never use again… But alas, I found this cookie that also happens to be sugar free. And it has rum in it! Even better. The cookies had a good chocolate flavor and actually reminded me of truffles or fudge with some rum thrown into the mix.

    Joshua and Stacie – the recipe says it serves 6, but I’d say it serves more like 8.

    This was a great recipe! It was my first pork roast, and it was so easy. My 7 lb roast was fork tender in 8 hours.

    What Barbeque sauce did you prefer. There are so many different flavors out there these days?

    This recipe is awesome!!! I have only made pulled pork a few times but was never a huge fan as I found them to be too BBQ sauce flavored! I saw this recipe on pinterest and decided to try it tonight for dinner! OMG it is FANTBULOUS!!!!!! I love the rb idea and honestly I could have done without the BBQ sauce as the drippings and sauce in the pot was amazing with the pork on its own! I did add the bq sauce however and was still quite impressed! This recipe had changed my whole opinion of pulled pork! Kudos on a great spice rub blend!!!

    • beantownbaker — October 23rd, 2013 @ 12:28 am

      So glad I was able to convert you to a pulled pork fan! I actually have a batch of this cooking in the crockpot as I type. It’s going to cook overnight for my sister and her husband since they’re new parents and it freezes so well.

    This is the easiest and I’m sure tastiest recipe I’ve ever found. I just rubbed all the spices on the pork and it’s marinating in the fridge right now…. I will cook it tomorrow morning I’m very excited about serving this to my family. I’ll come back and post how it was!

    • beantownbaker — October 23rd, 2013 @ 12:29 am

      I’ve got a batch cooking in the crockpot right now! I hope you and your family enjoy it.

    I tried this tonight and OMG it was delicious! That rub really makes it. I couldn’t let it sit in the fridge for days but it was still amazing. I will definitely be making this again.

    • beantownbaker — December 17th, 2013 @ 10:55 am

      So glad you enjoyed it! We really love this recipe and make it all the time.

    Hi. I am making this as we speak for tomorrow. My only concern the spices seem a little over powering. When I opened the crockpot to check on it it seemed very spicey. Is that what you experience?

    This is one of the best crockpot pork recipes ever! I use Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce or make my own secret barbecue sauce. Either way it is the best. We also use the rub when my husband cooks a shoulder on the grill. Great find – thanks!
