Vegan Gingerbread Cookies Tips
What kind of molasses should you use to make vegan gingerbread cookies?
Molasses is commonly used in spiced dessert recipes
during the holidays. It is produced from sugar cane or sugar beets, so it starts out 100% plant-based. However, during the manufacturing process (mainly by manufacturers in North America), animal bone char is sometimes used for filtering, which can be a non-starter for vegans. Look for molasses labeled as organic, because organic sugar cannot be processed with bone char. Or, call the manufacturer to find out about their practices. Regardless, light molasses is best for making gingerbread cookie recipes
. You might also see it labeled as sweet, or mild. However, "full flavor" molasses can also be used for a bolder cookie. Skip blackstrap molasses, though, which is less sweet and has a pronounced bitter flavor.
