Soft Ginger Chocolate Chip Cookies


WP_20171116_10_03_14_ProTrying to cram a chocolate chip cookie into a molasses tasting ginger cookie wasn’t so hard. 

With Thanksgiving coming up next week, I wanted to get started on baking and I just love gingery-pumpkiny, molassesy kind of flavors.  I know it’s all about pie  at dessert time on Thanksgiving, and honestly these cookies may not make until next week. But I’m thinking of freezing some to make a small cookie plate for that “before dessert sweet craving”…you know when everyone else is saying how full they are but you’re like, “when’s dessert?”


So why not a healthy cookie to satisfy your holiday cookie craving?  Thankfulness starts now…

Let’s get a-baking

Dry ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup millet
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup gluten free flour mix (a light version made with some tapioca flour)
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin coconut oil, softened
  • 2/3 sucanat or rapadura sugar
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1/3 cup crystalized ginger
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Sift dry ingredients together in a medium bowl and whisk to mix

Beat coconut oil with sucanat in a mixing bowl. Add applesauce and molasses, then egg. Beat until well mixed. Add in flour mixture. beat until consistent. Stir in ginger and chocolate chips.

Use a cookies scoop or spoon mixture by the tablespoonful onto parchment lined or greased cookie sheet.

Bake for 10-11 minutes. Let sit for a minute or two then transfer to a cooling rack.

Try not to eat ’em all.
