Ginger-Spice-CookiesMade with whole wheat flour and coconut palm sugar, there are no refined ingredients here!

 

Yield :

  • 40 cookies | Serving size: 1 cookie |

Ingredients :

  • 2 cups white whole-wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice (optional, cloves)
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil, softened or melted
  • 1 cup coconut palm sugar, plus a little more for rolling
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup molasses or sorghum
  • 1 teaspoon water

Preparation :

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or use a nonstick cookie sheet.

     

  • Sift together flour, salt, and spices in medium bowl, set aside.

     

  • In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, beat coconut oil and sugar until a creamy consistency and well combined. Add in egg, molasses, and water and beat just until combined. Stir in the dry ingredients and mix with a large spoon until incorporated. Allow dough to rest 10 minutes at room temperature before shaping.

     

  • Shape dough into 1-inch balls, roll balls in additional sugar, place on parchment paper, and slightly flatten with fingers or bottom of a glass. Leave about 1-inch between cookies.

     

  • TIP: For more festive cookies roll in Turbinado sugar which has larger crystals.

     

  • Bake for 10 minutes for softer cookies and 12 minutes for crispier cookies. Leave on cookie sheet about 4-5 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container. For best results, do not refrigerate.
