Paleo Gingerbread Cookies

December 25, 2014

  • This recipe is from "Simply 123 Allergy Free." I wanted to make a simple holiday cookie that I had not done before. I love Gingerbread! I found this and thought it looked perfect and fairly easy. 

 

Recipe: makes 12 (ish) cookies

Ingredients:
Cookies

  • 1/2 cup molasses

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 1/3 cup well mashed sweet potato (about 1/2 a medium sweet potato)

  • 1 tablespoon coconut milk

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 3 cup almond flour

 

Frosting:

  • 1/4 cup softened coconut oil

  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

Preparation:

Cookies:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  • In a sauce pan, heat molasses to a boil.

  • Add maple syrup, sweet potato, and coconut milk to sauce pan.

  • Stir ingredients until combined, then remove from heat.

  • In a small bowl, combine all dry ingredients.

  • Pour dry ingredients into wet, and stir until batter is fully blended.

  • Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.

  • Roll out dough between two sheets of parchment paper, until about 1/4 inch thick.

  • Cut batter with cookie cutters of choice.

  • Bake for 10 minutes on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

  • Let cool, decorate as desired, and enjoy.

Frosting:

  • Beat together softened coconut oil with maple syrup and vanilla until fluffy.

  • Put in a small piping bag, or alternatively in a small sandwich bag, and cut a tiny hole to squeeze frosting out onto gingerbread men/cookies. 

 

The last picture is of Simply 123's Cookies! Much cuter than mine, so I figured I would share. Mine were yummy though. The frosting really makes the recipe in my opinion. I used the original color of the frosting for a lack of natural food coloring available and just frosted them for flavor.
