13 Dec Ginger Molasses Cookies
Holiday gift ideas – homemade treats! A delicious way to show appreciation to coworkers, teachers, neighbours, friends, and family this season.
These ginger molasses cookies are soft, chewy and delicious. I used whole wheat pastry flour which has all the goodness of whole grains but is more finely ground than whole wheat flour and has a lower gluten content so cookies and brownies are light and fluffy. You can also swap in gluten-free flour – but the cookies won’t crackle as much when they bake. I have made these cookies with 1 cup oat flour and 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour and they turned out great.
I also used LIVA date sugar, which is a nutritional upgrade vs other sweeteners since it provides a dose of fibre and is all-natural. In place of powdered sugar to sprinkle the cookies, I used a sprinkle of date sugar for a sweet festive touch!
