Low Sugar – Soft baked ginger cookies

To me, nothing says Christmas more than the smell of ginger coming from the kitchen. This heady fragrance always makes me think of the holidays. It’s warming and comforting and, above all, tasty. It’s a very healthy spice too.

These cookies have a real taste of gingerbread  about them but, unlike most store-bought cookies, contain no refined sugar.

Ingredients – makes 15:

1 ¼ cup whole wheat flour – sieved
1 ½ tsp baking powder
1 ½ teaspoons ground ginger
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter or coconut oil, melted
1 large egg, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup molasses
5 tablespoons raw honey


Combine the flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. In another bowl, mix the butter, egg, and vanilla. Stir in the molasses and honey. Combine the two mixtures and stir until fully mixed and a dough forms. Refrigerate dough for 60 minutes to make the dough easier to handle.

Preheat your oven to 325°F. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Using a spoon, scoop the cookie dough onto the baking sheet – make 15 cookies. Bake at 325°F for 12-15 minutes. Allow to cool for 15 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Store for up to a week in an airtight container.
