These Vegan Ginger Molasses Cookies are mind-blowingly delicious! They’re soft, chewy, and packed with so much flavor. This recipe is adapted from Gimme Some Oven for Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies to be dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free so they are allergy-friendly and vegan. All I did was substitute the butter with non-dairy margarine, by Earth Balance and I used Bob’s Red Mill’s Egg Replacer to replace the eggs.
This recipe uses a mixture of dark rich flavors of molasses, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. And it is soft and chewy which makes it different than your traditional gingerbread cookies. Once you try this recipe, I promise you will making them every Christmas!
