Perfectly soft and chewy these gluten-free dairy-free gingersnaps are a holiday favorite. Easy to make and perfect for sharing.


  • ¾ cup (170g) dairy-free salted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • ½ cup (160g) fancy molasses
  • 2 ½ cups (300g) gluten-free baking blend *
  • 3 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground clove
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon xanthan gum **
  • optional: ½ cup (100g) granulated sugar for rolling


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and prepare two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large mixing bowl with electric beaters, cream the butter and sugar together on high for 2 minutes or until light and fluffy.
  3. Add in the egg and molasses and mix again on high for another 2 minutes.
  4. Add in the remaining ingredients (except for the rolling sugar if using) and turn the mixer on low and allow to mix until a dough forms.
  5. With a 1½ tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop the gingersnap cookie dough and roll each ball in the granulated sugar if desired.
  6. Place on the prepared cookie sheet approximately 2 inches apart from each other and bake for 10 minutes or until the edges are set and the center of the cookie appears to be slightly underbaked.
  7. Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to fully cool on the cookie sheets. Enjoy!
  8. Store leftover cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 7 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months.


* Check to see if the gluten-free flour blend contains xanthan gum. 

** Omit xanthan gum if your gluten-free flour blend already contains it or if you are using regular all-purpose flour.
