  • 150 grams melted coconut oil
  • 1 egg (if you want to veganaise this you can use an egg replacer)
  • 200 grams whole cane sugar
  • 85 grams blackstrap molasses
  • 240 grams white whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • A pinch of sea salt

Directions for making Gingerbread Cookies

  • After melting down the coconut oil add in the cane sugar and mix them together into a cream
  • Then proceed to add the egg and molasses. After this simply add the spices, salt, and baking soda
  • Add the flour last and mix everything well. If you’re getting a flimsy dough consistency do no be afraid to add up to 60 extra grams to get a good dough
  • Using your hands roll the dough into small balls, about the size of a walnut
  • Put the cookies on a sheet and flatten them down gently with your hand
  • If you want to achieve a certain shape, simply flatten all of the dough at once and then use a cookie cutter to get the shape you want
  • Stick them in the oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes at 350 degrees
  • Let them cool a bit and enjoy! Although I always just end up saying that they have time to cool in my stomach(Definitely would not recommend! But patience is not my forte)
