Recipe type: Dessert, Cookies
Serves: 10 cookies
  • 1 cup blanched almond flour (not almond meal)
  • 2 and ½ tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 and ½ teaspoons ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • pinch of ground cloves
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 and ½ teaspoons dark molasses
  • Optional: Turbinado (raw) sugar for sprinkling on cookies before baking
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the almond flour, coconut sugar, ginger, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and cloves. Add the water and molasses, stirring until completely blended.
  3. Drop by rounded tablespoons (I used a small cookie scoop) on the prepared baking sheet, spacing 2 inches apart. If desired, sprinkle cookies with turbinado (raw) sugar.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 13 to 16 minutes until surface of cookies appears dry and they are set at the centers.
  5. Remove from the oven and cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack and cool completely.
Storage: Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for 4 days (in a cool room; if it is hot, store in the refrigerator), the refrigerator for 1 week or the freezer for up to 6 months.

Sugar Options: (1) An equal amount of packed brown sugar can be used in place of the coconut sugar; (2) For a lighter-flavored cookie, an equal amount of maple syrup (or honey, if not vegan) can be used in place of the molasses.
