Preheat the oven to 180°c/ 160°c Fan/ 350°F/ Gas 4. Lay baking parchment onto several flat baking trays/sheets.
Melt the coconut oil/butter in the microwave. Then add the Molasses and Vanilla Extract. Note: This mixture will not properly combine, but don't panic - it will still work! Now stir in the beaten eggs.
Then in a separate bowl, sift the flour and cocoa powder. Add the spices and gently mix with a large spoon.
Now add the wet mix into the dry mix and slowly combine the ingredients with the spoon. Then as the mix starts to come together, use your hands to bring the dough together into a large ball.
Place the dough ball back into the mixing bowl. Cover with cling film or a tea towel and put in the fridge for around an hour.
Split the dough ball into half and roll out the dough to around a little less than a centimetre thick. Cut out your chosen shapes and place the shapes straight onto the baking parchment. Keep rolling and cutting until you have used up all the mix. Note: You may need to transfer the uncooked shapes onto extra baking parchment whilst the rest bake if you only have one or two baking trays like us!
Bake the cookies on the middle shelf of the oven for around 15 to 20 minutes or until firm. Allow the cookies to cool for around 10 minutes and then transfer onto a wire rack.
Decorate as you like and store in an airtight container. These biscuits actually improve in flavour after a day or so and should be good to eat for at least a week.
