These Greek Molasses Cookies are tastier than they look – trust me! The traditional Moustokouloura recipe uses grape must or grape molasses. But if you don’t have on hand, you can swap it out with molasses.

So these are a twist on Moustokouloura and are my version of Greek Molasses Cookies, and they are gluten free and vegan! I only had black-strap molasses on hand and used that this time around.
