Vegan Ginger Molasses Cookies RecipeThis vegan ginger molasses cookies recipe is my absolute favourite cookies! Use gluten-free flour to make gluten-free vegan ginger molasses cookies.

I made this recipe because I found there weren’t any good vegan replacements for my absolute favourite cookies!  This ginger molasses cookie recipe uses 12-ingredients including aquafaba & dark molasses which makes them super chewy and perfectly spiced.

I’m obsessed with Ginger molasses cookies. If you know me, you’ll know I have the biggest sweet tooth and this cookie is the perfect sweet treat. I’ve experimented with many cookie recipes and discovered the best way to make this holiday cookie. 

They taste like the holidays and the sweet smell of fresh-baked cookies will fill the air throughout your home.

  • What can I use to replace Aquafaba ?

  • Delnora says:

    These are amazing. I’ve made them a couple times and thought they were great. Last time I made them, I frozen some (pre-rolled in balls, in sugar) and just now got them out. HOLY MOLY. Even better. Gonna make up another big batch to freeze! Thank you!

  • These are a new family favourite in my house! I didn’t have all the spices and just used 2 tbsp of pumpkin pie spice and they are still exceptional

  • Candice these cookies were amazing! Everyone in my household who tried one loved them and had no idea they were vegan!

  • These are soooooooo good. Perfect recipe.

  • Kathryn Joy says:

    If the dough balls are frozen, would you adjust the cooking time or temp?

  • I’m typically a boring cookie girl – choc chip or sugar cookie. But OMG these are amazing and going to be a new staple. I love that they aren’t too sweet and perfectly chewy!

  • Just made these for my family of 5 and they were gone so fast (we may have been eating the dough, too)! So amazing!!

  • We literally ate them all in one night in our family! Soooo tasty & chewy!!! Definitely making again

  • Melissa McCulloch says:

    This recipe is amazing! My apartment smells delicious!
    These are soft and chewy with the perfect amount of spices. They were also a huge hit with my daughter, who is 3 and very picky, so I think that there says it all!
    Thank you for always giving us yummy recipes!

  • Can I use fancy molasses?
