  • Sheet pan
  • Parchment paper


  • 1/2 cup creamy almond butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup blackstrap molasses
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon white or apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of ground nutmeg
  • Pinch of ground cloves


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Add the almond butter, maple syrup, blackstrap molasses, vinegar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and salt to a mixing bowl and use a whisk to mix well.
  • Add the coconut flour and baking soda then use a spoon or your hands to mix thoroughly until it has the consistency of a cookie dough (it may take a couple of minutes to get a consistency that's firm enough to roll into balls).
  • Use your hands to roll the dough into 12 evenly sized balls and place them on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
  • Use your fingers to press the cookie dough balls down into flatter circle shapes.
  • Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 12 minutes.
  • Allow the cookies to cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.


  • Store these gluten-free vegan gingerbread cookies in an airtight container for up to five days or in the freezer for up to six months.
