Did you just imagine how gooey these vegan ginger spice cookies are? I’m always down with ginger cookies. I like its fiery taste and smell I will usually buy vegan gingersnap cookies and snack them at work. 

Although these vegan ginger spice cookies are a bit different than gingersnap cookies because of the snap and level of crisp both are great cookies and will still give you that fiery taste of ginger adding some kick with the cookies.

This recipe uses all dairy-free ingredients, I also opted for brown sugar instead of granulated white sugar. Also, another sweetener I use is maple syrup but you can definitely use molasses too.

I was able to bake 21 cookies from this recipe, a perfect snack to last me about two weeks, well almost two weeks it’s so good I have to control myself from consuming all in one sitting.
