Delicious Vegan & Gluten Free Molasses Cookies

Vegan Gluten Free cookiesA while back I made ginger molasses cookies.I got it from my first ever vegan cook book. The book was titled vegan cookies invade your cookie jar! I didn’t however follow the recipe. What I did was changed it to make gluten free. I used a mixture of quinoa flour and something else that I can’t remember. the results were thrilling! I shared the cookies with everyone I knew! But my husband being my designated taste tester was not a fan of these cookies. He said he hated the taste of the molasses…  I just assumed my husband didn’t like molasses at all and so I stopped making them…

I however LOVE molasses cookies. Especially when there super chewy it’s the perfect cookie to have with a cup of coffee. SO, I pined for them for weeks until finally I decided to go back to the drawing board. And decided to take all the stuff I love in a cookie and see if it would work. Because my husband disliked my versions of Isa Chandra’s cookies. I was able to make one that is even be better. And it is gluten-free!

I made this recipe fairly simple. when I bake I always like to mix all my dry ingredients and then add in the wet as I go and it seems t work. For the flour, I used both buckwheat flour and quinoa flour, I figured the intense earthiness of the flours will hide behind the molasses. I also added spices, cinnamon nutmeg and all spice the combination is just heavenly! Once I mixed all the ingredients I rolled out teaspoon sized balls and rolled that castor sugar but that’s optional.
