  • 2 tsp “Frontier” Cinnamon

  • 0.063 tsp “Frontier” Nutmeg
  • 1 tsp Aliminum Free Baking Soda
  • 0.5 Cup "Nutiva" Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Room Temperature)
  • 3 tbsp Organic Blackstrap Molasses (un-sulphured)
  • 0.25 Cup Filtered Water
  • 1 tsp "Simply Organic" Vanilla Extract


  • 1.5 Cup Organic Icing Sugar
  • 6 tbsp “Pacific” Organic Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 2 tsp Fresh Organic Beet Juice

Chocolate Drip/Drizzle

  • 0.5 Cup “Enjoy Life” Chocolate Mega Chunks
  • 2 tbsp “Pacific” Organic Unsweetened Almond Milk

Additional Topping

  • Unsweetened Shredded Coconut



  • Preheat oven to 350ºF and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Add flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and baking soda to the bowl of a stand mixer with a flat beater attachment and stir to combine. Alternatively, this can be done by hand in a large bowl, by mixing with a whisk or spatula to combine.
  • Add coconut oil and mix slowly until the mixture has turned to coarse crumbs using either a stand or hand mixer.
  • Add molasses, water and vanilla to the crumb mixture. Mix until incorporated and dough forms into a ball. You may choose to add extra water (1 teaspoon at a time), if necessary, but be careful not to over do it, otherwise the dough will be too sticky and difficult to manage.
  • Turn dough out onto a piece of parchment paper and shape into a flat disk. Roll between two large pieces of parchment to ¼ inch thickness. Cut into shapes using cookie cutters, pastry or pizza slicer or a knife and using a spatula transfer cookies to onto lined cookie sheets.
  • Bake 6-8 minutes, until slightly darkened around edges. They will still be soft when you first take them out of the oven, but they will harden as they cool.

Organic Royal Icing

  • Place sugar in medium sized mixing bowl, add 4 tbsp of almond milk (you can add more as you go if needed) and beat until it's a nice thick mixture- approx. 2 minutes. Add beet juice while beating, 1 tsp will make a very bright pink hue, you can play around with how much you add depending on the colour you desire.
  • Take half the icing mixture and transfer to another bowl, add 2 tbsp of almond milk and continue to beat until you achieve a runny texture. This portion of the icing is perfect for dipping/ flooding the cookies.
