  • Stand mixer or large bowl
  • Spatula
  • Parchment paper
  • Baking sheet
  • Oven
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Rolling Pin
  • Cookie Cutters


  • 1/3 cup melted vegan butter (or coconut oil)
  • 1/3 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1/3 cup organic molasses
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp himalayan salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/4 cups cassava flour (plus more for dusting)


  • Heat your oven to 325°F
  • Mix all dry ingredients together in your stand mixer or a large bowl.
  • Add your melted butter, egg, molasses, and vanilla extract to your dry ingredients and mix together thoroughly. The dough will be quite wet and sticky. Using a spatula, scrape the dough down into a ball. Cover your mixing bowl and put your dough in the fridge for at least 15 minutes. This will make it easier to work with.
  • On a clean surface, place a large piece of parchment paper down and thoroughly dust it with cassava flour.
  • Scrape your ball of dough out onto the dusted parchment paper and sprinkle with more cassava flour on top. Using your roller, roll out the dough until it is about half an inch thick. Dust with more cassava flour as needed.
  • Dust your cookie cutters and start cutting out cookies one at a time. Place your cut out cookies on a parchment lined baking pan. Once you've gotten through the first set of dough, mash it all back together, roll it into a ball, dust it, and roll it out a second time.
  • Continue this process until you have used up all the dough.
  • Bake the cookies for roughly 11 minutes.
