Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
In a smaller bowl, whisk together the molasses, coconut oil and egg.
Pour molasses mixture into the large mixing bowl with the dry ingredients and mix until well combined and a dough-consistency is reached.
Roll dough into 2 balls and cover with cling wrap and allow to chill for an hour or so in the fridge.
Preheat oven to 180°C and line two baking trays.
Place the chilled dough between two pieces of baking paper and use a rolling pin to roll out the dough until about ½ cm thick. Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes and transfer them to the baking tray.
Bake for about 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
