Grain Free. Paleo. Vegan. Low Carb. My Favorite Cookie - Seriously.
These cookies are grain free, vegan, and refined sugar free - but you would never know that because they are packed full of AMAZING FLAVOR and CHEWY DELICIOUSNESS! Each bite melts in your mouth.
And the best news is that if you are like me and need to carefully watch your sugar intake, these are the perfect holiday cookie to satisfy your sweet craving without 'breaking the sugar bank'. With only 6.5 grams of carbohydrates and 3.8 grams of sugar total, it's pretty easy to justify eating two of them:) I love my ginger cookies soft and chewy, but if you prefer more of a ginger snap version, just cook them an additional 2-3 minutes.
Ginger Cookies (PRINT RECIPE)
1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour or almond meal*
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup 100% pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon organic cane juice sugar or coconut palm sugar for sprinkling (optional)
*Either works fine here. Or you can even mix almond meal and almond flour together, which is what I often do depending on what I have on hand.
Hope this recipe helps bring in the scents, flavors, and tastes of the holiday season into your home! Enjoy!
