It is almost Thanksgiving! Every year for the past few years, I have been making these delicious cookies for all of my holiday parties and for all of my friends. I am so grateful for all of the wonderful feedback I have received on these! I grew up eating gingersnap cookies out of the box. However, there are tons of processed ingredients and dyes. As I started my journey, these were some of the first baked goodies I’ve made. They are super easy to make and they taste amazing. Did I mention they are gluten-free?! Since these are basically my favorite cookies ever, I feel called to share the recipe with the world. Thanks to Food Faith Fitness, I bring to you my recipe for my famous gingersnap cookies!
- 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil melted
- 1 Cup Turbinado or Coconut sugar lightly packed + more for rolling
- 1 Egg
- 1 1/2 Cups + 1 Tbsp Almond Flour
- 1/4 Cup + 1 tsp Coconut Flour
- 1 3/4 tsp Baking soda
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 2 tsp Ginger powder
- 2 tsp Cinnamon (plus a little more because I love extra cinnamon, but this is completely optional)
- 2 Tbsp + 2 tsp Molasses
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, beat together the melted coconut oil, coconut or turbinado sugar, and egg until well mixed. Set aside.
3. In a medium bowl, stir together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, salt, ginger and cinnamon. Stir until everything is very well mixed and there are no little clumps of flour.
4. Stir the flour mixture, along with the molasses into the oil mixtures and stir until a slightly sticky dough forms. Place the dough into the refrigerator for 10 minutes, just to allow to coconut flour to absorb some of the moisture.
5. Once the dough has chilled, Roll 1 Tbsp sized balls and roll the balls around in coconut or turbinado sugar. Place onto the prepared baking sheet and slightly flatten down.
6. Bake until the edges begin to go darker brown and top is nice and crackly, about 19-20 mins. (SEE NOTE **) The cookies will feel VERY soft, but they will crisp up A LOT once cooled.
7. Let cool completely on the pan and then ENJOY!
**Note: I like to place them on an air pan and I cook them for 24-26 minutes. I’ll typically cook the cookies for 20 minutes first and then see how much extra time they need. They are nice and airy inside and crunchy on the outside. They still taste amazing! You can make 18-20 decently sized cookies with the batter.
