These taste just like the wheat-filled molasses cookies you know and love, but without the gluten! The recipe makes about 6 dozen cookies.

  • Beat the coconut oil, sugar, molasses, and egg together until well combined.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
  • Place in the refrigerator for 45 minutes or more. The amount of time will depend on how cold your refrigerator is. Be sure your cookie dough is very firm when it comes out of the refrigerator. If it's not firm enough the cookies have a tendency to spread more.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Roll dough into small quarter sized balls. Roll balls of dough in sugar.
  • Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes.
  • Enjoy!


*I used organic cane sugar for the cookies pictured in the post. I have also made the cookies using turbinado sugar. They aren't as pretty and sparkly on the outside, but taste just as delightful and have extra depth of flavor.
