I participate in a health group in my area every now and again, and every month I try to focus on one medicinal herb, what it does for your body, and how we can use it in our everyday food! So, this month's herb is GINGER, and these cookies are not your average ginger snaps!
Ginger is a great anti-bacterial herb, and you can use it in many ways! This is obviously ground ginger that we use in these cookies, but you can grate fresh ginger into your favorite chili recipe, or you can make ginger tea by boiling diced ginger in a pot for about 10 minutes and adding honey. Ginger tea is great for keeping colds and flu viruses away, and it works wonders for a natural remedy for strep throat!
These cookies are thick and chewy and VERY GINGERY! If you're looking for cookies with a kick, then these are for you! These cookies are also completely organic and refined sugar-free! They're sweetened with pure maple sugar, which means that they're sweetened with dried maple syrup which is filled with lots of minerals and nutrients!
3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 Tbs. ground ginger
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup palm shortening
3/4 cup organic maple sugar
1/4 cup molasses
*Use organic ingredients when feasible.
This recipe is actually a special recipe from the mind and heart of my dad! My dad served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Australia when he was younger, and he recently wanted to recreate this cookie that he had on his mission a lot. Needless to say, they were a huge success and our family loves these delicious creations now!
These cookies are made with whole wheat flour, coconut, and oatmeal. They're soft and chewy on the inside, and are the perfect treat to satisfy your sweet tooth! Not to mention they are organic, and refined sugar-free! Yum!
Australian Anzac Cookies
1 cup flour
1 1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 cup golden Lakanto
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup raw honey
3 Tbs. water
1 Tbs. baking soda

I've always LOVED ginger snaps! Except for the snapping part... So, I have always resorted to a chewier version of ginger snaps. These molasses cookies are soft, chewy, and full of flavor! I've found that getting the right texture in a cookie that is refined-sugar free can be incredibly difficult, and they often come out cakey and dry. The good news is that I've mastered the perfect cookie texture on these babies, and they are still refined sugar free!
For these cookies we used Lakanto Monkfruit sweetener: The vegan, non-GMO, zero calorie, zero after taste, and zero glycemic index sweetener! Lakanto comes from a fruit and fits all kinds of diets! Who says you have to stop satisfying your sweet tooth once you go refined sugar free!? 🤣😁😊👍
Chewy Molasses Cookies
1 1/2 cups salted butter (softened to room temperature)
1 cup Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetner
1/3 cup raw honey
1/2 cup molassses
4 cups whole wheat flour
4 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. Redmond salt
*Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
I have just been beside myself lately! I've spent years wanting chocolate chip cookies again, but there's always been the small dilemma: Refined-sugar free chocolate chips with zero harmful additives don't exist! So for this recipe I got creative and used the chocolate recipe that I've posted prior to this post. You simply remove the pre-made chocolates from the fridge, chop them into medium sized chunks, and throw them in the batter the same way you you would regular chocolate chips! Easy! And much healthier! 😉
So without further ado, we present to you organic, refined-sugar free chocolate chip cookies! For all the health nuts out there who still want to enjoy a taste of their childhood every now and again. 😉💕😊
