Easy Gluten Free Vegan Ginger Snaps Recipe - Frugal and Delicious

When I want to make a dessert I often think about cookies since they are easy to eat and relatively non messy in general, but I usually am stumped as to what kind to make. The last time I wanted to make cookies I had the idea to make ginger snaps as they can be made using ingredients you usually already have in the house. I looked at a previous recipe for ginger snaps that I posted but then decided to update the recipe and this is what I got. 

Since these have ginger in them, and not just a small amount, I was hoping that they would be mostly for me, maybe shared with my older and less picky kids, but all my kids devoured these and told me I definitely need to make them again. So now I'm sharing them with you so your family can also enjoy them as my family did.

Easy Gluten Free Vegan Ginger Snaps Recipe - Frugal and Delicious

1 cup sunflower oil
1 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup (blackstrap) molasses, date syrup, or jaggery syrup
4 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups sorghum flour
1 1/2 cups potato starch
2 teaspoons xanthan gum

1. Mix the first 6 ingredients together until uniform.

2. Mix together the last 6 ingredients until uniform.

3. Mix everything all together.

4. Make balls on a lined cookie tray. These do a bit spread so no need to flatten them. Leave a little space for the spreading. (In the picture above, the cookies were complete balls when put in the oven and ended up looking like that.)

5. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Keep in mind that these will firm up more once cooked so even if they don't look completely ready they probably are good because they will get more solid after.

Are you a fan of gingersnaps? How about your kids? Does this look like a recipe you'd try? What type of dessert is your go-to one?

  1. I love ginger and I love ginger snaps! I don't keep sorghum flour in my house. Are there other recipes you make that use it? I'm afraid I would have to make too many batches of cookies rouse it all up!😄 I do bake gluten free exclusively, I just usually use a rice flour blend...
