Advent Calendar Cookbook—Day 11: Vegan Molasses Cookies

Advent Calendar Cookbook—Day 11: Vegan Molasses Cookies

Recipe submitted by Luisa Cywinski, Director of Access Services


  • 2/3 c vegetable oil.
  • ¼ c blackstrap molasses.
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seeds whisked into 3 tbsp warm water.
  • 1 c brown sugar.
  • 2 c flour.
  • ½ tsp salt.
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon.
  • 1 tsp ground cloves.
  • 1 tsp ground ginger.
  • 1 tsp baking soda.
  • ½ c crystallized ginger, diced.
  • Granulated sugar for coating.


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Whisk together oil, molasses, flax seeds mixed with water, and brown sugar. In a separate bowl, sift together remaining ingredients (except for crystallized ginger and granulated sugar).
  • Combine wet and dry ingredients; mix well.
  • Fold in crystallized ginger. Refrigerate, covered, until firm, about 1 hour. (It’s fine if some oil separates; you can just stir it back in later.)
  • Shape cookie dough into 1″ balls, and roll in sugar to coat. Bake for ~6 minutes on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • Yield: about 2½ dozen 2″ cookies.
