Gingerbread Cookies Recipe

By Veegs

🔪Prep Time: 10 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 20 minutes


2 teaspoons flax meal

1 tablespoon warm water

¾ cup oat flour (certified gluten-free)

½ cup brown rice flour

¼ cup almond flour

1 tablespoon arrowroot powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon ground ginger

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

¼ teaspoon xanthan gum

⅓ cup coconut oil, melted

¼ cup blackstrap molasses (or regular molasses)

¼ cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)

1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Cinnamon Sugar

3 tablespoons coconut sugar

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


1Mix the flax meal with the water in a medium bowl. Set aside and let rest for about 5 minutes.

2Combine the oat flour, rice flour, almond flour, arrowroot, baking soda, ground ginger, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and xanthan gum in a large bowl and whisk until combined.

3Add the coconut oil, molasses, sugar, grated ginger, and vanilla to the flax mixture. Mix until combined.

4Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until combined. If you’re using add-ins, fold them in.

5Chill the dough in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

6Once you’re ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

7Remove the dough from the refrigerator.

8To make the cinnamon sugar : Mix the sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl.

9Scoop out a tablespoon of dough and roll it into a ball. Roll the ball in the cinnamon-sugar mixture, then place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough, spacing the balls about 2 inches apart.

10Use a fork to gently flatten each cookie and make a crisscross pattern on the top. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until the cookies are spread out and firm around the edges.

11Let the cookies cool on the pan for a couple of minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack. Cool completely before serving. (They will firm up more as they cool.)

12Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up 4 days.

13To make these cookies with gluten, replace the oat, brown rice, and almond flours with 1½ cups unbleached all-purpose flour and exclude the arrowroot powder and xanthan gum.
