Can you ever have too much chocolate chips? My answer is no. These cookies are studded with copious amounts of chocolate chips, so I hope you’re on board with that.

They are also rich in flavor from hints of molasses and ground ginger.

If you’re ready to make moist, pillowy, and gooey cookies…I suggest you keep reading.

There’s a time and place where I’ll choose a soft and pillow cookie over a flat, chewy, and crispy one. That time and place is especially relevant when I’m enjoying that treat with a warm cup of hot chocolate or espresso.

These cookies are best 5 minutes after removing them from the oven or heated up in the microwave for 15 seconds. The gooey chocolate chips are like no other, so they have to be slightly melted, of course.

I have tried making these cookies gluten-free with oat flour and coconut flour and it yields a slightly dryer texture. However, a gluten-free all-purpose flour may work.

I haven’t tested these cookies with softened coconut oil in replace of vegan butter, but if you give it a try let me know!

The stars of these cookies are: ginger and molasses…hence the title.

The ground ginger adds spice to the cookie that is balanced with the sweetness from the molasses and coconut sugar.

Molasses always reminds me of the holidays, so I thought it was appropriate to include it in a recipe during this time of year.

If you’re a fan of ginger and molasses, I suggest checking out my other ginger molasses cookie recipe or ginger molasses cookie skillet. If you’re a fan of gingerbread, this gingerbread loaf is out of this world good.

    This was a family hit! The different flavors make the cookie just amazing! I did not see when to add the flax egg, so I just added it in at the end haha; I don’t know if that was the right time to do it, but it turned out great. 🙂
