These vegan chocolate spice cookies are similar to a molasses or a gingerbread cookie, but with just a hint of cocoa for a chocolate flavor. These are a great vegan cookie for Christmas, but I like molasses cookies year round! If you like these chocolate spice cookies, you might also like these vegan chocolate rum cookies too. Enjoy!
