Healthy Ginger Cookies

Healthy Ginger Cookies

By Dawn Thalheimer

Nothing says Christmas like the smell of ginger and cinnamon!  Instead of throwing away all the hard work you have put in over the last few months, try bringing a plate of these tasty ginger cookies to your next holiday party.

Ingredients 

  • 2 cups almond meal (I just throw a bunch of slivered almonds in my food processor and make it myself!
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil - melted
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tbsp molasses

 

Directions 

Preheat oven to 275.  This low temp is important or the cookies will spread out into one giant blob.  Ask me how I know this :)

Combine all the dry ingredients in a medium bowl and mix thoroughly.

Melt the coconut oil and add to the dry ingredients while continuing to mix.  You want it to be blended before it starts to solidify again.  I like to melt it in the measuring cup for 20 seconds and then use the same cup for the honey - less messy clean-up!

Add the honey and molasses and mix again.

Drop the dough 1 tbsp at a time onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment.  Shape the cookies into nice round circles. Makes about 12 cookies.

Bake for 10 - 15 minutes.  Make sure to check at 10 minutes as these dudes like to spread out and you don't want burned edges!

Now just because these cookies are made with "real" ingredients doesn't mean you get to eat the whole tray!  They still contain about 150 calories each so moderation is the key :)
