  • ½ cup vegan buttery spread
  • ¼ cup organic cane sugar
  • ½ cup dark brown sugar or light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups gluten free flour blend I used Namaste Perfect Flour Blend - you could use all-purpose flour if you are not gluten free
  • teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar for rolling the cookies


  1. Place the vegan buttery spread, cane sugar, and dark brown sugar in a bowl and mix on medium speed until light and fluffy.

  2. Add the molasses, maple syrup, unsweetened applesauce, and vanilla extract and continue to mix until smooth.

  3. Add the gluten free flour blend, spices, salt, and baking soda. Mix on low until combined. The batter will be thick.

  4. Place the bowl of dough in the refrigerator for about an hour to chill.

  5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

  6. Place the powdered sugar in a bowl. Roll the chilled dough into one inch balls, then roll in the powdered sugar. Place the cookie dough balls on the cookie sheets, about 1.5 inches apart.

  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool before transferring to a plate or tray.

Recipe Notes

Store cookies in an airtight container. They should stay fresh for about 5 days.
