Gluten free. Grain free. Vegan. Nut-free version.
I usually make ginger cookies during the holiday season, but this week I was inspired by our upcoming Valentine's Day to make a slightly different version and would like to share it with you today.
Even when I eat sweet treats like these, I'm careful to choose ingredients that help reduce inflammation in the body...the star in this recipe of course is GINGER! Ginger is one of the most powerful medicinal foods available and has been used for centuries to help support digestion, reduce inflammation, aid in healing, and increase circulation.
In fact, because it can helps to increase circulation, ginger has been touted as a powerful aphrodisiac...making it perfect for a Valentine's Day celebration with your significant other or friends! Check out this simple recipe...
Grain-Free Heart Shaped Ginger Cookies (PRINT RECIPE)
Makes about 16 cookies
1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour/almond meal (substitute cassava or tiger nut flour for nut free version)

1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses
