With the holiday season upon us, there’s no better time to indulge in this new must-have vegan molasses cookie recipe!
Season’s Greetings to you!! I hope you and all of your loved ones are having a warm and safe holiday season. As the year winds down and work schedules ease, it’s high time we start kicking up our feet and indulging in festive treats!
For today’s recipe, I first have to give full credit to Full House and Hallmark Channel movie star Candace Cameron Bure for the original recipe. I recently picked up the Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas coffee table book from Amazon and tucked inside are a variety of delicious holiday recipes from the network’s most beloved stars. As a self-confessed fan of cheesy Hallmark movies, I picked this up as a token for celebrating the most wonderful time of the year and have enjoyed flipping my through it this December.
Of all the recipes included in the book, the one I knew I immediately had to make for my own family was Candace Cameron Bure’s signature Chewy Ginger Cookies. For one, the recipe includes molasses which I definitely have a weakness for around the holidays. Add to that some spices and I knew it would make for the perfect holiday treat that was rich with flavor!
Chewy Vegan Molasses Cookie Recipe
If you follow a plant-based diet like me, fear not! Candace Cameron Bure’s recipe adapts quite easily! All I had to do was swap out the eggs and I was in business!!
Additionally, there were a couple quick tweaks I made to the recipe. I added in some nutmeg as it’s one of my favorite flavors for the holidays. With that add-on, I also scaled back the ginger as not to completely overwhelm the palette.
With those quick fixes, my modified chewy Vegan Molasses Cookie Recipe was well on its way! The recipe’s prep comes together in a quick ten minutes and the aroma of these baking in the oven felt like the true spirit of the holidays had officially arrived. In the event you are looking for a rather delicious and simple recipe to add to your holiday lineup this year, my new Candace Cameron Bure-inspired vegan molasses cookie recipe is listed for you below!
And if you DO decide to whip these up, I would simply love to know what you think of them. Already I’ve been able to pass these around to a handful of family members and the ruling on the field is that these are DELICIOUS and a new holiday staple. Cheers to that!
