Vegan Ginger Snap Cookies with Pumpkin Buttercream
Prep Time: 12 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 22 minutes
Yield: 25-27 1.5 Inch Cookies or 16 2 Inch Cookies (cook time will be 3-6 minutes longer)
Vegan Ginger Snap Cookie Ingredients:
2 Cups Almond Flour
1/4 Cup Coconut Oil
3 Tbsp Organic Maple Syrup
1 Tbsp Organic Molasses
1/4 Tsp Baking Soda
Dash Sea Salt
1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
1 Tsp Ginger (or what I love doing is 1/2 Tsp of powdered ginger and 1/2 tsp of real grated ginger)
1/4 Tsp Cloves
Pumpkin Buttercream Frosting Ingredients:
3/4 Cup Pumpkin Puree
1/2 Cup Cashew Butter
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1/4 Tsp Ginger
1/8 Tsp Cloves
3 Tbsp Maple Syrup or Coconut Sap (more if you like it sweeter - You can also use a few drops of liquid stevia to make this sugar-free)
Pre-heat oven to 350F.
Place all vegan ginger snap cookie ingredients into your food processor and blend until smooth.
Remove dough from food processor onto large sheet of saran wrap (enough to completely wrap the dough). The dough may appear crumbly until you do this. Do not stress – place the dough in the saran wrap, completely wrap it and place it in the refrigerator. When you remove the dough it will be smooth and easy to work with.
Place dough in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to chill (this is just to make it easy to work with).
Spread dough out evenly using a rolling pin with dough covered in saran wrap (or you can just use your hands).
Cut out your cookies using a cookie cutter. I used a 2 inch cookie cutter.
Place on a parchment covered baking sheet.
Bake for 13-16 minutes (until golden brown) or less if you are doing the smaller cookies.
These cookies can be very fragile. When you remove your cookies from the oven let them sit on the baking sheet for 5-7 minutes before placing them on the cooling rack. This will ensure that they stay set in form.
Gently place cookies on a cooling rack and let cool completely.
Once your cookies are completely cool you can prepare your frosting and ice your cookies.
Place Pumpkin Buttercream Frosting ingredients into your food processor and blend until smooth stopping to scrape down the sides.
Place into a piping bag and top cookies.

“The thing I love most about DAMY is that you don’t have to count calories. I was driving myself crazy day in and day out logging caloric intake and burn. There were days where I would eat even if I was not hungry because I had not taken in enough calories. DAMY alleviates that stress and lets you focus on eating clean, healthy food without the guilt. The recipe variation is good and the desserts are simply amazing! The hardest part for me was choosing which treat to have each week!”
