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!


  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp ginger (ground)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cloves (ground)
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup vegan margarine
  • 1/2 cup sugar (brown)
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 tsp baking soda (dissolved in 1 1/2 tsp boiling water)
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Steps to Make It

Whisk together the flour, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and cocoa in a small bowl and set aside.

Beat together the margarine and brown sugar. Add the molasses and mix well. Add half of the flour mixture and the baking soda mixture and combine well. Add the rest of the flour mixture.

Chill, covered for at least one hour. Pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees.

Spoon dough into 1 1/2 inch balls, then roll each ball in the sugar.

Bake 13-15 minutes, until surfaces start to crack slightly.
