Where all my molasses lovers at?

In all seriousness, I know molasses is not a *for everyone* ditty, but I happen to take to it like white on rice. I enjoy it as a sweetener so much that this is the third molasses-inclusive gingerbread-inspired recipe I’ve posted in the last three weeks – my Paleo Gingerbread Muffins and Paleo Gingerbread Pancakes being the other two.

The concept behind this recipe is similar to my Paleo Gingerbread Cookies, although these cookies are designed to be ultra soft and chewy. The Paleo Gingerbread Cookies turn out more like gingersnaps, whereas these beauties are just plain soft, squishy, and sultry.

Cookie ingredients? The base of these ginger molasses cookies is almond butter, almond flour, molasses, coconut sugar, and eggs.

Simply mix it all up in a mixing bowl, drop the dough on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and BAKE!

I love that these cookies can be prepared at a moment’s notice – no refrigerating, freezing, forethought necessary. From start-to-finish, you can whip out a batch in less than 30 minutes.

    I made this and the version I printed was lacking the ground ginger. They definitely need it. We iced them with ginger icing which really helped.

      Forgot to mention, I dropped them using a teaspoon (not measuring) and it made 26 cookies. They did not puff up as much as in the photo.

    Well, I must say, when I read the title of the post chewy ginger molasses cookies, my mouth was watering. I was aware that I should not overlook the article. And, upon reading it, I am so glad that I didn’t, it appears to be so delicious. In fact, there doesn’t appear to be anything difficult in the making of it. EVEN A MAN like ME can undoubtedly do it, er, I’m hoping at least haha.

    This recipe is fabulous! The only substitution was using BochaSweet instead of coconut sugar. Moist inside and a slight crisp on the outside. You know the Archway brand molasses cookie? This recipe is far healthier and way more tasty! I grated frozen ginger. Just the right amount of ginger zing. Sooo yummy!!!

    These were tasty – but mine didn’t look anything like the cookies in the photo even though I followed the recipe 🤔 they were flatter and smoother, and very light and soft inside. Is that right? The consistency of yours looks much better.
