ginger snaps (vegan)

from how it all vegan

  • 2.5 C flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 3/4 C maple syrup
  • 1/4 C molasses
  • 1/2 C oil
  • 5 T fresh ginger, grated

Preheat oven to 350 F. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the maple syrup, molasses, oil, and ginger [which is a bitch to grate, but worth it!]. Stir together gently until "just mixed." Scoop spoon-sized portions onto a lightly oiled cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes. Makes 6 large or 12 small cookies [bullshit; i got at least 24 normal-sized ginger snaps out of this].
