Soft, Chewy Gingerbread Cookies [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
It is with so much joy I share with you today a delightful gingerbread cookie recipe. Not only are they soft, chewy, and delectable, they are VEGAN AND GLUTEN-FREE! I’ve been working really hard to come up with some recipes that don’t contain wheat and are vegan. I have to say I’m very happy with the way these cookies came out. The proportion of the spices that give the cookie warmth and luscious flavor, along with the soft texture of the cookie makes me so happy I could sing, AGAIN! :-)

The gingerbread cookies taste what Christmas should taste like, and I’m certain you’ll be singing in no time too while you bake and enjoy these with your loved ones.

Sending giant gingerbread hugs and smiles your way!

These came out lovely! I used oat milk instead of almond for mine.

Bake for 7 minutes.

Cool cookies on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

Cool cookies completely before decorating.

*Optional – sprinkle cooled cookies lightly with confectioner’s sugar. Works great if you use a very fine sieve.

Wendy, can you substitute coconut milk for the almond milk? I\'m allergic to tree nuts, so I use coconut milk a lot, or rice milk.

Maybe there\'s something wrong with the site on my tablet, but where is the rest of the instructions? It stopped at placing the cookies on the sheet. Ummmmm for how long? Did I miss something?

Yes, I thought the same thing but tried them anyway. 10 minutes at 350 degrees. A little golden on the bottom but soft.

In the latest issue of Consumer Reports, it was reported that gluten-free foods are not only not good for you, but cost substantialy more

They are cookies so of course they are not \'good for you\' but recipes like this allow people who are vegan and/or gluten free to also enjoy some holiday treats....

Don, for some of us, gluten is not good for us. Since I quit eating gluten, I\'ve had no irritable bowel, and I\'ve lost 6 inches of "bloat" that I\'d been carrying around my middle for years. Perhaps for healthy folks, eating gluten is healthy, but for many of us, gluten is like poison. I\'ve got more energy, and feel better and stronger now -- so yes, it costs more to eat gluten free, but my health is worth it.

It's not every day that gluten free and vegan are put together especially when soft and chewy are in the mix.
