These Vegan Soft and Chewy Molasses Cookies are so good they’re hard to stay away from! They’re perfectly spiced and so soft!
Happy Monday! Since we’re in the thick of the holiday season and everyone seems to love cookies this time of year, I decided to make this week COOKIE WEEK on She Likes Food! I have three delicious (and vegan) cookie recipes to share with you this week, starting with my favorite: Vegan Soft and Chewy Molasses Cookies!
I’ve always loved Soft and Chewy Molasses Cookies but this is actually the first year I’ve ever attempted to make my own. And it turns out they’re super easy! The only hard part is not allowing yourself to eat the entire batch in one sitting 🙂
When you first take them out of the oven the tops will be slightly hard but once they’ve sat in a container for a few hours, they’re perfectly soft all around! They kind of melt in your mouth 🙂 They’re also perfectly spiced and really make you think of the holidays when you eat them.
In my mind, soft and chewy molasses cookies are the quintessential Christmas cookies!
If you love cookies as much as I do, make sure to stay tuned this week for two more delicious cookie recipes! On Wednesday I am posting my Perfect Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies and on Friday I will share my Oatmeal Cookies with Dried Cranberries and Chocolate Chunks!
Recipe tips for Vegan Soft and Chewy Molasses Cookies:
- Different brands of molasses will make them lighter/darker and possibly stronger tasting. I used Grandma’s Original Molasses for this batch and really loved how they turned out.
- You don’t necessarily need to chill the batter but I would suggest chilling for a few minutes if it seems sticky.
- You can use regular butter and an egg instead of vegan butter and a flax egg.
- If you don’t want to use regular sugar you can skip the rolling in sugar part.
