The Cutest Paleo Gingerbread Cookies

It’s day Three of cookie week and I’m loving these days’s highly spiced paleo gingerbread cookies!

When I used to be young I never truly preferred the deliciousness of gingerbread cookies. I used to be by no means person who loved molasses cookies both. The flavor of molasses just wasn’t in the playing cards for a girl obsessive about pumpkin pie.

That all changed a few years in the past when I began baking wealthy, delightful actual deal cookies again to heal my damaged heart. One day after biting into one of my homemade ginger molasses cookies — I knew that they would be a favourite forever on in my life.

Isn’t it humorous how your tastes change upload you get older and start to admire and recognize different flavors and spices?

Today I convey you a new recipe that’s supposed to be a more healthy and paleo model of classic gingerbread cookies. Over the previous yr lots of you may have requested more baking recipes that are made with either coconut flour or almond flour — and today your want is my command.

Even in case you aren’t paleo/grain free, these cookies are fabulous. The icing is totally non-compulsory, but I favor my cookies to all the time be frosted (and perhaps with some sprinkles too).

These gingerbread cookies can be great to make with kids — they usually’re incredibly simple to make and roll out.

I'm hoping you revel in baking these with your circle of relatives or for your friends this vacation season. You won’t be disillusioned!

Adorable paleo gingerbread cookies made with coconut and almond flour! These grain unfastened and gluten free cookies are the highest treat all through the holidays.

  • 1/2 cup melted and cooled coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (or use natural cane sugar)
  • 3 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups packed blanched almond flour
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour (I used the type from Trader Joe's)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Optional: Organic cane sugar for sprinkling, if desired
  • For the icing (not paleo, but scrumptious):
  • 1 cup natural powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk
  1. Preheat oven to 350 levels F. Line a big baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a big bowl, mix together melted and cooled coconut oil, coconut sugar, molasses, eggs and vanilla extract. (Please do ensure that your coconut oil is not HOT; it may be slightly warm just not hot!)

  3. Next add in almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, spices and salt; combine neatly to combine and form a dough; occasionally the usage of blank palms could be necessary. Let the dough rest for only a few minutes.

  4. Place dough between two sheets of parchment paper on a flat even floor. Roll out the dough so that it is roughly 1/4 inch thick.

  5. Use cookie cutters of selection to chop the dough out and then position each and every shape in your prepared baking sheet about an inch apart. Sprinkle with natural cane sugar if you'd like then place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 mins. 

  6. Allow cookies to cool on cookie sheet for five mins sooner than shifting to a cord rack to finishing cooling. Makes about 18 medium sized cookie shapes.

  7. To make the icing: Once cookies have totally cooled combine the icing components in combination in a medium bowl till clean (an electrical mixer additionally works well). Transfer to a pastry bag to pipe icing onto cookies. I most often use a Ziploc bag and reduce a VERY small hollow in the corner after I've added part of the frosting to the bag, then enhance!
