Blackstrap Molasses Gingerbread Biscuits
This healthy alternative to gingerbread contains no refined sugar and is full of nutrients and minerals like iron, calcium, selenium, and Vitamin B from the blackstrap molasses. A little spicy, and very moreish, these school-friendly biscuits are delicious when eaten fresh and freeze well too.
1 tbsp stevia powder or coconut sugar
1/3 cup blackstrap molasses
½ cup coconut oil or olive oil
3 tbsps non-dairy milk like almond, soy or rice
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 cup whole wheat spelt flour
¾ cup plain spelt flour
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp bicarb soda
Pinch of sea salt
dried fruit or nuts to decorate
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
- In a bowl, mix sugar, oil, molasses, milk and vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, mix together flours, spices, bicarb and salt.
- Combine the two slowly, being careful not to overmix.
- Place rounded tablespoons on a lined baking tray and flatten slightly.
- If you’d like you can press in a nut or piece of dried fruit on the top of the cookie for decoration.
- Bake for around 12 minutes, being careful not to overcook, as they’ll harden on standing.
