There’s something about these cookies that makes you want to throw on some reading socks, curl up with a good book, a mug of tea, and settle in for the evening. These gluten-free molasses cookies are totally guilt free, and since they have no refined-white sugar, they are a wonderful indulgent treat that won’t wreak havoc on your skin.
I have so many childhood memories of Saturdays in December, Christmas baking with my mom, and having these cookies fill the house with the most welcoming aroma. But back then, the traditional recipe called for white flour, and white sugar.
Today, you can make an upgraded version of these traditional delights! The almond meal (you can use almond flour too) and coconut flour makes these cookies totally gluten free!
They are sweetened with coconut sugar, which is rated only at 35 on the glycemic index, meaning it will not spike your insulin like white sugar will. And the molasses, ginger, cinnamon, and clove spices makes these spicy and the perfect holiday treat.
Well, there’s really no reason you can’t eat these all year ’round!
These cookies are part of my Holiday Treats eBook, which if you’re planning on doing some Christmas baking this weekend, I highly recommend that you pick up!
