Gluten-Free Ginger Cookies

It’s never too early to begin with holiday baking and these gluten-free ginger cookies are excellent. Made with protein-rich almond flour and blackstrap molasses, these cookies are surprisingly loaded with iron, calcium, copper, magnesium, and potassium. Naturally sweetened with pure maple syrup or honey, they are also egg-free and dairy-free. If you prefer soft and chewy ginger cookies, simply half the baking time and press them into slightly thicker shapes before baking. Adapted from Detoxinista.com. This recipe makes about 12 cookies.

Ingredients

1½ cups almond flour

2 tablespoons MELT® Organic, softened

¼ cup pure maple syrup or honey

1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses

2 teaspoons ground ginger

⅛ teaspoon fine sea salt

¼ teaspoon baking soda

Directions

  • Combine all dry ingredients in a medium bowl until well mixed, then add all of the wet ingredients and mix until a thick batter is formed.
  • If the batter is too dry, add small amounts of water (no more than ¼ cup at a time) and mix thoroughly until the desired consistency is achieved.
  • Chill the batter for 30 minutes in the fridge or freezer to ensure the dough is firm before scooping.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Roll rounded tablespoons of batter in your hands to form a smooth dough ball.
  • Flatten each ball with your hands and then with a wet fork on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake for 20 minutes until firm.
  • Allow to cool on the pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely before serving.
