I’m not sure it gets any more holiday-y (not a word, but go with it) than gingerbread, so an homage to this classic was a must this year. There’s also just something about a crinkle-top cookie that makes me feel some type of way, so these babies seriously have it all going on.
I found my Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies have the right amount of spice and not too much sweetness, making them the perfect treat to enjoy alongside a mug of hot cocoa or glass of eggnog. It seriously doesn’t get better than that!
And while you’re already in the holiday baking spirit, be sure to whip up some of these other festive goodies as well:
- Chocolate Peppermint Christmas Cookies
- Snickerdoodle Snowballs
- Mint Chocolate Energy Balls
- Cranberry Sauce Overnight Oats
- Healthy Pecan Pie Bars
- Healthy Apple Crisp
- Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Balls
- Raw Brownie Bites
- Superfood Hot Chocolate Truffles
- Fudgey Walnut Black Bean Brownies
- Life-Changing Almond Thumbprint Cookies
You simply can’t go wrong with any of the above! But for these tasty ginger cookies you’ll only need:
- Almond flour
- Almond butter
- Coconut sugar
- Ground ginger
- All spice
- Baking soda
The combination of the molasses, ginger, all spice and cinnamon give you that classic gingerbread taste, but I personally love the soft and chewy texture of these cookies over the classic, crunchy (and typically dried out) gingerbread we’re used to.
I recommend using Blackstrap molasses if possible as it actually has the lowest sugar content of any sugar cane product and contains a variety of vitamins and minerals, unlike traditional sugar which has no nutritional value.
Blackstrap molasses has also been touted as a superfood thanks to its high iron content, which is actually why my doctor recommended I begin taking it as a “supplement” a while back for my anemia. Who knew?!
After mixing together all of the above, you’ll have a sticky, wet dough, so throwing it in the freezer for a few minutes makes scooping and rolling a bit easier (but still expect some sticky fingers). I also recommend getting your hands wet before rolling to make this process easier.
Bake these beauties until they’re golden and smell like actual heaven, and enjoy with your family, share with loved ones or whip up for Santa to nosh on this Christmas Eve .
Happy baking, y’all!
