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.

Makes 12-16


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

Optional extras:

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.
