Ginger Snaps


Oh snap! Watch out for these addictive little taste treats! They are so easy and fast to make … and easy to eat.

This recipe is the result of blending an old friend-shared recipe, on-line research to up nutritive density and the exacting discernment of my taste buds.



As always, please use organic ingredients. Your body will thank you.

  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp molasses
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • 2 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp cloves
  • scant ¼ tsp Himilayan Rock salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda

Warm up the coconut oil, coconut sugar, molasses and water. Add to the dry ingredients (almond and coconut flours, spices, salt and baking soda – blended together). Stir until completely blended then form into small balls about 2 cm in diameter. This recipe makes 2 dozen. You can leave the balls as is for a more rounded cookie, or flatten the balls for a more traditional ginger snap cookie shape. Pop the cookie sheet in a 350°F oven for about 10-12 minutes and you’re done.

Whatever  way you make these delectable little morsels, they are hard to resist … the voice of experience here, having eaten 3 of them as I write this. I only needed to eat 1 as quality control, but …

You can fancy them up by adding toppings, or piping simple Christmas designs on them. They will look great but couldn’t possibly taste any better.

And just in case you think there can’t be much nutrition in something this sweet and tasty, read on….
