Healthy Vegan Ginger Molasses Cookies

I was on the way home from a family BBQ when a craving came over me. I really wanted some ginger molasses cookies. ASAP.

I can’t explain why I felt the sudden need for these cookies, but once I had these treats on my mind, I knew I had to make them!

As soon as I got home, I headed to the kitchen and started working on whipping up a batch of these cookies. I also really wanted to try and make these cookies as healthy as a could, as well as tasty.

And in other exciting news, I officially signed up for the Toronto Waterfront Marathon! I am only doing the 5k, as this is my first ever race, but I am beyond excited!

I’d love to do some other races this fall, but I’m having a hard time deciding what ones to do. Hopefully in the next few weeks I will have more news to post about other races I’ve decided to participate in :).

Have a great Tuesday!
