Ginger Spice Cookies


Ginger Spice Cookies

These cookies are my daughter’s favorite; she often has them for an after-school snack or dessert, and I often join her! Crisp on the outside and soft and gooey on the inside, I love to dunk these sweet treats in my coffee so that it gets infused with ginger, cloves, and cinnamon. So delicious!     

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 13 minutes
  • Total Time: 23 minutes
  • Servings: 12


  • 2 cups gluten-free flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk (i.e. soy)
  • 11/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Grease a cookie sheet.

  3. Sift all dry ingredients except sugar into a bowl and set aside.

  4. In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients and sugar (reserve 2 tablespoons), then whisk well until blended.

  5. Stir in pre-sifted dry ingredients and mix until well combined.

  6. Roll dough into little balls (about 1 tablespoon each) and flatten out. The dough will be quite sticky, so you may need to dampen your hands to work with it. 

  7. Press reserved sugar onto the tops of the cookies and bake for about 10 minutes. 

  8. Allow to cool before serving.

Bon appétit!
