Oil, coconut sugar, molasses, vanilla, egg, all purpose flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.

In a large bowl, whisk the oil and coconut sugar together. Then add the molasses, vanilla extract, and egg. Whisk vigorously until well combined.

Step 1

In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, salt, and spices together. Then add half of the dry ingredients to the wet and fold with a rubber spatula. Repeat with the second half.

Step 2

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or until the dough is less sticky. While it's chilling, preheat the oven.

Step 3

Scoop the dough with a medium cookie scoop and roll each ball in granulated sugar. Place the balls on a lined baking sheet 1-2 inches apart.

Step 4

Bake at 350F for 11-13 minutes. The edges should be set and the middle will be puffy when they're done. Bang the pan against the counter to encourage crinkles to form.

Step 5

Let the baked cookies cool completely and enjoy! Want to make these? Check out the full recipe at:
