Mom’s Ginger Molasses Cookies!

Mom’s Ginger Molasses Cookies!


1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1¾ cups whole wheat flour
1½ teaspoon ground ginger
1½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon sea salt (fine grain)
¾ cup melted Earth Balance
¾ cup Sucanat (adjust to your preference)-- personally this isn't too sweet, nor too bland
substitution for 1 egg, prepared. (I used Bob’s red mill egg replacer)
¾ cup unsulphured molasses
--optional-- Sucanat for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 350°Fahrenheit. Lightly spritz canola oil on surface of baking sheet.
In a bowl, whisk flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt together; set aside.
In a separate large bowl, beat Earth Balance and Sucanat until fluffiness occurs.
Mix in egg replacer and molasses.
Beat in dry ingredient mixture, half at a time.
Drop dough in balls of your preference onto the baking sheet(s).
Sprinkle with Sucanat if you plan to.
Bake about 10-12 minutes or until the edges are about set but the middle of cookie is still soft.
Let stand about 5 minutes on the baking sheet(s) before moving to wire rack to cool completely.
