  • Preheat oven to 350F while you prepare the batter, and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or a baking mat.
  • Using the bain marie method, melt and whisk together vegan butter and dairy free chocolate until smooth.
  • In a separate large bowl, cream the cane sugar, coconut sugar and applesauce using a hand mixer or stand mixer. Mix for about 1-2 minutes until frothy and evenly incorporated. Add the melted butter and chocolate mixture into the bowl and mix for another 1-2 minutes until smooth.
  • Finally, in a third bowl, sift flour, cacao powder, baking powder, gingerbread spice and salt. Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry and using a spatula, mix until smooth, being careful not to over mix.
  • Using a cookie scoop, scoop balls of dough onto the baking tray, leaving ample space between each dough ball (roughly 3"). Cookies will spread once in the oven.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, then turn the tray around and bake for an additional 5 minutes. Remove from the oven, and let cool on the tray for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  • If desired, gently press chocolate chips into the cookie tops while still warm.
