How can I make my favourite cookie recipe vegan?

This is my favourite cookie recipe and I want to make it for my vegan friend. I’m going to replace the butter with vegan margarine, but what can I swap in for the egg?

Sorry there’s no link. I got this recipe from my mom.


1 cup sugar

¾ cup butter softened

¼ cup molasses

1 egg

2 ¼ cups all purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon ginger

½ teaspoon cloves

¼ teaspoon nutmeg

¼ cup sugar


  1. In large bowl, beat 1 cup sugar, margarine, molasses, and egg until light and fluffy.
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients except ¼ cup sugar; mix well.
  3. Heat oven to 350°F.
  4. Shape dough into 1 inch balls; roll in ¼ cup sugar.
  5. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.
  6. Bake at 350°F for 8-12 minutes or until set. (Cookies will puff up then flatten during baking.)
  7. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets; Cool completely.

Thank you!
