Gluten-Free Ginger Molasses Cookies
These gluten-free soft and chewy molasses cookies are going to be a new cookie favorite. They are bursting with nostalgic flavors that everyone loves!
They truly are so chewy and remind me of days at home during Christmas but they really are great any time of the year. Kind of like our soft gluten-free snickerdoodle cookies or 4-ingredient grinch cookies.
In fact, we’ve been loving this cookie for years and years but it was originally published here on December 3, 2014 and you guys loved it too! It even won a baking competition with Pamela’s Products.
The best part is that they are really simple to make and the kids will love rolling them into sugar. It gives them a beautiful shine and a nice little sugary crust.

Step 2: Slowly add in the oil and combine.
