Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies

Attention cookie lovers, do I have a recipe for you!!
Warning: you may not be able to eat just 1

These cookies are chewy, bursting with ginger flavour and best of all… made with only wholesome ingredients…cue the cheering! Yay for healthy swaps.

Recipe Food Facts:

  • Black strap molasses used as it contains minerals and vitamins such as calcium, copper, magnesium, manganese, selenium, potassium, vitamin B6 and niacin. Making it a more nutritious option than fancy molasses. This ingredient also helps with energy 🙂 
  • Completely gluten-free, perfect for anyone with sensitivities.
  • Lactose intelligent?No problem, these cookies are completely dairy free.
  • Ginger is in my opinion, a real superfood! It’s anti-inflammatory, reduces headaches, soothes stomach issues, reduces morning sickness and support immune function. 

Recipe: {my tip for budget friendly baking, buy ingredients you haven’t tried before at Bulk Barn to see how you like to bake with them, before investing in bigger packaged quantities.} Blackstrap molasses can be found at Sobey’s/Zehrs health food section and your local health food store.

  • 1 1/2 tsps Baking Powder
  • 2 tsps Ground Ginger
  • 1 tspCinnamon
  • 3 tbsps Coconut Oil (melted)
  • Egg (room temp)
  • 1 tspVanilla Extract
  • Enough honey to fill the 1/4 cup of molasses
  • Slightly less than 1/4 cup Blackstrap Molasses, leave around 1/4 of an inch to fill with honey. This is because we aren’t using fancy molasses and still want the cookie to taste sweet.
  • 1/4 cup Maple Syrup

Directions

  • 1.
  • 2.
  • 3.The batter will be wet, you just need to use a spoon to make round”isn”

If you try these, take a photo and tag me on Instagram! You don’t want to store them in an air tight container, they get too soft and break apart! 
That’s it, that’s all. Live well TODAY-Steph

    Hi and good day to you, I ant to try the chewy ginger molasses cookie but i would be using natural liquid ginger. Could i just ad the liquid with the vanilla instead of using the ground ginger? I’ve never used molasses before – this should be interesting. Thank you.

      I’m not sure what amount you would use, but I can’t see that being a problem 🙂 Black strap molasses is so tasty.
