Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 30 cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup softened vegan butter (I used Earth Balance)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax seeds+2.5 tbsp water mixed and chilled for 10 min in the freezer)
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 tbsp white sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium sized bowl, mix together the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat the brown sugar and butter until light and fluffy with a hand mixer. Then add in the flax egg, water, and molasses.
  • Add in the dry ingredients with the butter mixture and beat until well combined and a dough has formed.
  • On a pan lined with parchment paper, shape dough into one inch balls or use a cookie scoop to maintain consistency. In a small bowl, lightly roll each ball in the tablespoon of white sugar (I only dipped one side) and space equally on the pan.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, then transfer the cookies with the parchment paper to a cooling rack.
  • Once cooled, eat and enjoy! Store leftovers in an airtight container.
