Easy one-bowl gingerbread cookie recipe that’s naturally vegan and gluten free. It makes the perfect soft and chewy cookie! 


Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Dash of clove (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons coconut sugar (optional, for coating)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine almond flour, ginger, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda. Mix well.
  3. Next, add the olive oil, maple syrup, and molasses. Mix until a thick batter forms.
  4. Use a cookie scoop (I use a 1 tablespoon scoop) to scoop dough, then roll it between your hands to form a ball. OR use cookie cutters to cut into shapes. Can roll the balls in coconut sugar, if desired.
  5. Arrange the balls on prepared baking sheet. The cookies won’t spread much, so flatten cookies to desired thickness.
  6. Bake for about 10-12 minutes (until cookies lightly puff up). Allow cookies to cool completely before serving.


  • Can wet hands/fingers if dough becomes too sticky when rolling into balls.
  • This recipe is great with cookie cutters for gingerbread men.
  • Can dust finished cookies with powdered sugar (optional).
  • For room temperature storage – store in container for up to 3 days (cookies will get soft if stored in an airtight container).
  • For refrigerator storage – store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. 
  • For freezer storage – store in a sealed freezer bag or container for up to 3 months.
  • Use code: TAYLOR10 for 10% off olive oil
