Vegan Ginger Cookies (Gingersnap) Recipe

By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 20 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 12 minutes


1/4 cup Vegan Butter (56g)

1 cup Light Brown Sugar (200g)

1/4 cup Unsulphured Molasses (60ml)

1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

2 cups All Purpose Flour (250g)

1 tsp Baking Soda

1/4 tsp Salt

2 tsp Ground Ginger

2 tsp Ground Cinnamon

1/4 tsp Allspice

1/4 tsp Ground Cloves

2-3 Tbsp Non-Dairy Milk

1/4 cup White Granulated Sugar (50g) for rolling


1Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

2Cream vegan butter and brown sugar together and then add molasses and vanilla extract and mix in.

3Sift all purpose flour into a bowl and add baking soda, salt, ground ginger, cinnamon, allspice and cloves and mix together.

4Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir in by hand until crumbly.

5Add 2 Tbsp non-dairy milk and mix. You should get a very thick cookie dough. However, if you still have crumbles and it’s not yet ‘sticking together’ then add another 1 Tbsp non-dairy milk. Only do this if you really need it though.

6Break off pieces of the dough and roll into balls. Place them evenly onto your parchment lined baking tray. Aim to get 20 cookies from the batch.

7Roll the balls in white granulated sugar and return to the parchment lined tray.

8Flatten the cookies with a fork.

9Bake in the oven for 12 minutes. If you want more on the softer side then bake for 10 minutes, if you want more snap/crunch then bake for 12 minutes and if you want them super crunchy then you can bake them for up to 15 minutes, but keep a close eye on them so they don't burn.

10The cookies will be soft when they come out the oven. Allow them to cool and firm up directly on the tray before moving them.
