Cookie-baking season is definitely upon us!

Traditional holiday flavor in a modern gluten-free dessert is possible and delightfully so, with these gluten-free ginger molasses cookies.

If you need something in a hurry for unexpected guests or extra family members, these ginger molasses beauties are just the ticket. These soft cookies come together quickly and need no softening of butter beforehand.

They are full of the traditional ginger molasses flavor so many of us enjoy this time of year.

No Fussy Cookies

This is the time of year when we’re just plain busy. There are gatherings, gifts to make and buy, trips to see family, guests coming to the house, and so much more. Why make the days busier with fussy cookies?

Melted WFN coconut oil is the fat in the cookies, and that means there’s no waiting for butter to soften! The relatively few ingredients come together in just 2 bowls with a whisk and a spatula. These cookies could also be easily made vegan by using an egg replacer.

Make a triple batch and freeze the excess for quick desserts and snacking with a mug of hot cocoa later.

How To Share & Dress Up Gluten-Free Ginger Molasses Cookies

Make a batch of smaller cookies to sit on a buffet or take to a potluck. Use larger cookies for gift baskets and filling care packages.

Frosted ginger molasses cookies are also tasty. Spread a bit of cream cheese or vanilla frosting over the top of each cookie for a sweet and beautiful touch. Make small cookies and spread frosting between 2 for a delightful cookie sandwich.

If you’re a¬†chocolate fan, dip the bottom of each cookie in some melted chocolate and allow to harden before packaging. Alternatively, drizzle chocolate in a striped pattern over the tops. Use a mix of dark and white chocolate for pretty designs.

Do you love spicy ginger molasses cookies? Do you decorate them, or leave them plain?

    These sound delicious! What if I need to prepare a batch that does not use coconut oil for someone who is not doing oil, at all?How do you think it would work with avocado, instead? I’m thinking of increasing the ginger and molasses, by a little bit, to add a little more flavor. What do you think?

      I didn’t test it in this particular recipe but I have had great success in other recipes substituting unsweetened applesauce for oil (1 to 1 substitution). I think I’d go with that here instead of the avocado and the applesauce would lend a natural sweetness that would compliment the ginger as well.
