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.

Batches on repeat!
