Paleo Gingerbread Cookies

These gingerbread cookies are so delicious! If you love allspice or cinnamon these are for you. You can find the original recipe by clicking here. I sprinkled some of the cookies with coconut sugar and some with monk fruit sugar. To be honest I couldn’t tell much of a difference. They were both great! I used my food processor to make this, but you can also do this with an electric mixer.

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg PLUS
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2/3 cup smooth almond butter (can use chunky if you have a food processor)
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • ¼ cup black-strap molasses
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp allspice
  • Extra sugar for sprinkling – optional (I prefer Monk fruit)

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Mix all ingredients in food processor until smooth.
  • Place mixture in fridge or freezer until dough is cold (about 10 minutes).
  • Roll into small balls and place on pre-lined cookie sheet.
  • Gently flatten with your fingers and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake for 8-9 minutes.

Tips:

  • You can store this in your freezer.
  • Double the recipe, because they are delicious!!!

JUST EAT REAL FOOD – Stop focusing on calories & focus on what you’re eating and how it makes you feel. Your body is always giving you signals, but many times we ignore them. Pay attention if you develop nausea, gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, headaches, joint pain, rashes, sinus problems, or cold sores. If you develop any of these things after eating, it’s a good indicator that your body is giving you a clue to stop consuming something in your food. Many times these symptoms come from consuming chemicals, artificial coloring, and preservatives. Other times these symptoms can occur from a food allergy or sensitivity. Pay attention. Creating a food diary is a really great way to help you figure out what your triggers are. Food elimination diets are a great way to figure out what your triggers are.
