Vegan Molasses Cookies

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by valgal123

These cookies have the same taste, look, and texture of the non-vegan ones. And no chill time. Very fast and easy to put together. Make sure you drain the apple sauce from most of its water content BEFORE measuring. I just put some on a paper towel and patted it.

This is the PERFECT vegan recipe! Absolutely no alternations needed. I'm completely in shock about how perfect this cookie is.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F or 165 degrees Celsius.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt.
  3. In a second bowl, mix brown sugar, vegetable oil, molasses, vanilla and apple sauce.
  4. Add flour mixture to brown sugar mixture and stir until mixed. Using a tablespoon measure, scoop up dough and form nice mounds. Place the mounds about 2 ½ inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet (Silpat is okay) and sprinkle tops with sparkly sugar (I actually rolled the dough into balls and rolled them in sugar. When i put my cookies on the baking sheet i pressed them down with my fingers). Bake for 13-16 minutes. Let cool for 2 minute on sheet, then transfer to wire rack to cool.
