Mineral Rich Gingerbread Cookies!
I'm super excited to be making these with you because I LOVE gingerbread cookies!!
Honestly, now I understand that one of the reasons I love them is not just because they're delicious but also because they are super rich in the minerals that my body needs!
When I make these cookies, I find that I totally crave them, and then after a few, I feel satisfied and the craving subsides because I got what I needed from them.
pretty cool, eh?
Here's the recipe for about a dozen cookies!
They're rich in minerals mostly from the molasses! But, they're also getting nutrition points from every other ingredient! I'll cover each ingredients and the benefits in the video :)
1 1/2 cups almond flour 1/4 cup arrowroot 2 teaspoons ground ginger 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 2 Tablespoons melted coconut oil 1/3-1/2 cup coconut sugar 1/3 cup water 1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses
1.) If you're super ambitius, preheat the oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2.) In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, arrowroot, ginger, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda and stir to combine.
3.) Add in the coconut oil, coconut sugar and molasses and stir again until a sticky dough is formed.
4.) Roll the dough into tablespoon-sized balls and flatten them on the baking sheet with your hand.
5.) Sprinkle coconut sugar all over them.
6.) Bake the cookies at 350F for about 10 minutes for cookies with a soft center, or 14 to 15 minutes for a more crisp cookie.
