Guest’s pick! Recipe of the week: Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies (they’re vegan!)

We love these cookies so much…and so do you! They are simple, chewy and delicious. Enjoy them as dessert or an afternoon treat with a herbal tea. The fresh ginger root really makes a different, so that little bit of  extra “work” is so worth it.


4 cups spelt flour (or gluten-free flour)

2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp salt

2 flax eggs (2 tbsp ground flax mixed with 4 tbsp warm water)

1 cup coconut oil

2/3 cup molasses

1 cup brown sugar

4 tsp fresh ginger root, grated


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Prepare flax eggs by combining ground flax seed with warm water in a small bowl, and let sit.

In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt. In a separate bowl, combine ginger, molasses, oil, sugar and flax egg.

Mix the wet ingredients with dry until just combined.

We use a large trigger ice cream scoop, but you can also use a tablespoon or roll balls. Place cookies on prepared baking sheets 2-3 inches apart.

Bake 7-8 minutes for smaller cookies, and 12-14 minutes for larger ones.
