When to Make These Cookies?

Molasses cookies are an excellent holiday cookie to have on hand.

The warming spices and molasses are classics of the fall and winter seasons! They are sure to brighten up any afternoon cup of coffee or dessert table.

Plus, they hold up well for gifting in person or through the amil.

Think of these as vegan gingerbread delights!

What Ingredients are in these Cookies and Why?

We use JOI Almond concentrate (or cashew!) in these cookies. That's because they stay incredibly moist and fluffy! Plus, you can skip the vegan butter (high in saturated fat) or oil, while adding an extra hit of nutrition. Finally, the JOI almond milk concentrate further enhances the almond flavor, which also comes from the use of almond flour.

We use coconut sugar instead of dark brown sugar or regular granulated sugar because it's less processed than its counterparts. But feel free to substitute with whatever you have in your pantry.

The inclusion of molasses adds a rich deep flavor to these cookies. Use vegan molasses, blackstrap molasses or whatever you have on hand.

Spices are key to this recipe! Ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg round out the delicious flavor of these treats.

The rest of the dry ingredients are probably already sitting in your pantry: baking powder and baking soda. Because we use almond flour instead of all purpose flour, these cookies are gluten free, too!

How Do These Cookies Look?

Dark molasses is a sweetener that gives incredible deep flavor AND an amazing brown color.

To achieve our “crinkle” look we sprinkle the outside with a little coconut sugar and roll it in arrowroot starch. It has no flavor but adds to the look of the crinkle (although is totally optional).
