Molasses Cookies

  • 133g coconut oil OR 3/4 cup butter
  • 200 g sugar
  • 1/4 cup (85g) molasses
  • 1 egg (possibly another if dough isn’t coming together)
  • 270g all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line baking sheets with parchment.
  2. In the KitchenAid, beat melted coconut oil and sugar until fluffy.
  3. Add egg and molasses. Then dry ingredients.
  4. If the dough isn’t coming together, add another egg.
  5. Form cookies, roughly the size of Reese’s peanut butter cups. If you like, roll the cookies in more sugar (or sprinkle atop).
  6. Bake for ten minutes, making sure the tops are cracked.
