The Easiest Gingerbread Cookies Ever
The first time I made these, I forgot to take photos but luckily still remembered to jot down the ingredients (and subsequently save that little scrap of paper, which is not always the case!)
Since I got great feedback on these after serving them at the twin's 3rd birthday bash, I had to recreate them and share the recipe with you, dear fellow baker. I had to wait to include photos, because let's be honest, nobody wants to create a recipe without seeing an example of the final product!
These are no-bake, so they are fast to make, plus can be made in one bowl, and you really can't screw them up. My advice is to get a little gift box and gift them as a little holiday treat! And if you want to be extra festive, pair some of these cookies with gingerbread-inspired gifts like these unique ones!
And now, the recipe:
Easiest Gingerbread Cookies Ever
1 cup fine almond flour
1/4 cup + 2 TBSP fine coconut flour
2 tsp cinnamon
1-1/2 tsp ginger
pinch of sea salt
1 cup almond butter
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup melted chocolate chips, vegan /paleo, etc.
1. In a large bowl, warm the almond butter (or just warm it in the microwave if your almond butter comes in a glass jar for a super simple option). Stir in maple (or honey), molasses and mix until creamy.
2. Add in the dry ingredients, and stir until it all comes together.
3. Roll into balls and freeze for 10 min as you melt the chocolate. Drizzle chocolate on top or dip balls in chocolate, and refreeze until chocolate hardens. Serve and store extras in the freezer!
It will TASTE like this:
But they will LOOK like this:
