Soft Ginger Cookies | Vegan Recipe

If you have been on the hunt for a soft, warm ginger cookie recipe that is easy, delicious and 100% plant based, this is the cookie for you.

I use both fresh and dried ginger to capture the zingy-warmth of the ginger from all angles and just love adding an extra sprinkle of sugar over the top for that sparkly holiday feel.



Soft Ginger Cookies | Vegan Recipe

Yield: Makes 32 Cookies

Prep Time:15 minutes

Cook Time:20 minutes

Total Time:35 minutes


  • 2 cups of white whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1.5 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1.5 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher sea salt
  • 2/3 cup coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup turbinado sugar (also called sugar in the raw)
  • 1 chia or flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flax seed or chia seed + 3 tablespoons water)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 4 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 heaping tablespoon fresh ground ginger
  • Optional: extra sugar for the top of the cookies


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350º F.
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a silat mat and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, sift together white whole wheat flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ground ginger, and salt.  Gently toss together and set aside.
  4. In a large bowl combine coconut oil, turbinado sugar, chia/flax egg, almond milk, fresh ground ginger and molasses.  Using a hand mixer, blend until well combined.
  5. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and continue to blend until you have a thick hearty dough.
  6. Scoop one tablespoon of the dough into your hands and roll into a small ball.  Place on baking sheet and flatten out a bit, continue until you have 12 cookies on the baking sheet.

*Optional (but beautiful + delicious) top each cookie with an extra sprinkle of turbinado sugar.

Pop into the oven for 10 minutes or until set through and fragrant.  Transfer cookies to a wire cooling rack and repeat until all of your cookies are done.

Store cookies in an airtight container in your fridge for up to 10 days.  Enjoy!
