Serves or Makes: 12


  • 2 teaspoons ground flaxseed
  • 2 tablespoons soy milk
  • 3 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 2 tablespoons unsulphured molasses
  • 1/ 4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1/ 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/ 2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/ 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/ 4 teaspoon nutmeg


  • Step 1

    In a small bowl, mix together ground flaxseed and milk. Set aside for 5 minutes to gel.

    Add room temperature butter, molasses, and sugar to a bowl. Cream until fluffy.

  • Step 3

    Add in gelled flax mixture and beat until smooth.

  • Step 4

    Sift in oat flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix until evenly combined.

  • Step 5

    Transfer the dough to the fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes. During this time the dough will thicken and be easier to roll.

  • Step 6

    Preheat oven to 350°F.

  • Step 7

    Roll dough into balls, roll in sugar if desired, then place on baking sheet. (If the dough is sticking to your hands too much, you can lightly wet your hands.)

  • Step 8

    Use your fingers to slightly flatten the dough into discs.

  • Step 9

    Bake 10 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for 3 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
