It’s about holiday time so I may be posting a lot of recipes in the coming month. Today is a cold, cloudy day- perfect for baking. I love these cookies- they are like chewy gingersnap cookies. The best part is, they are vegan, maple syrup sweetened, and totally healthy! They don’t last long around here.
I meant to count how many this batch makes… but.. they are gone. I think it was about twelve?
Paleo Gingerbread Spice Cookies
1 3/4 cup almond meal/ flour (blanched or unblanched, either is fine)
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/8 cup coconut oil, melted
1/8 cup molasses
1/2 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350. Combine all dry ingredients and blend well. You can mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl before adding, but I usually just add them directly and mix everything together. Form into balls- about a tablespoon of dough per cookie. Place on a greased baking sheet. They will flatten out as they cook so no need to flatten. Bake for about 15-20 minutes until slightly brown on the bottom. I like mine chewy so I err on the side of less done. Cook a little more and they’ll be more crispy.
