Fat-Free Vegan Molasses Cookies (Gluten-Free Molasses Cookies)

Today I'd like to share my favorite gluten free cookie from Everyday Happy Herbivore. These molasses cookies are soft and fluffy and super easy to make. 

Soft Molasses Cookies | yields 14 cookies

*gluten-free*

1 c oat flour
1 tbsp cornstarch
 ½ to 1 tsp baking soda (see note)
 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp ground ginger
 ⅛ tsp allspice, nutmeg or ground cloves
¼ c mashed navy beans
 ¼ c molasses
2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
2 tbsp brown or raw sugar (optional)

Note: For a less puffy and more dense cookie, use only ½ tsp baking soda. Use the full 1 tsp for very soft and pillow-like cookies.

To make oat flour, whiz instant or rolled oats in your blender until it reaches a flour-consistency.
Mix 1 cup oat flour, cornstarch, baking soda, salt and spices together in a mixing bowl until well combined.
Add remaining ingredients and stir until combined.
Set batter aside to rest while oven heats to 350F.
Grease a cookie sheet or line with parchment paper. 
Drop 14 spoonfuls of batter on to the cookie sheet and bake 10-15 minutes, or until cookies are firm to the touch.
