Ginger Molasses cookies are a classic recipe that has been around for many generations. The sweet chewiness of these vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free cookies are balanced by the spiciness of the ginger and the tang of the molasses. They are a perfect dipping cookie whether you are enjoying a comforting cup of coffee or a soothing cup of tea.
