These Vegan & Gluten-Free Molasses Cookies are a delicious way to celebrate the holidays.




  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper for easy clean up.
  2. Make the chia egg by combining the chia seeds and water in a small glass bowl. Stir and set aside for 10 minutes to thicken.
  3. Next, combine the gluten-free flour, baking powder, coconut sugar, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, and sea salt in a medium mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
  4. In a small mixing bowl, combine the chia egg, coconut oil, molasses, vanilla extract, and orange extract. Stir to combine.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir to combine.
  6. Use your hands to form the dough into about 1-inch round balls. Flatten each one slightly as you lay it on the baking sheet. You’ll have enough dough for about 20-22 cookies.
  7. Bake for 12 minutes, or until the cookies start to brown. Be careful not to let them burn.
  8. Enjoy warm or at room temperature.


You can freeze the baked cookies for up to 2 months in an air-tight container.
