You make this amazing gingerbread flavor by mixing together a bunch of delicious spices and adding in some blackstrap molasses. Although blackstrap molasses is a sweetener, it also has a ton of vitamins and minerals like iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamin B6 and selenium. This is the organic blackstrap molasses that I use and I normally buy it at Whole Foods.

How to Make Soft And Fudgy Gingerbread Cookies:

These cookies do have lots of different spices to make that perfect gingerbread flavor, but it isn’t hard to make at all.

Start by preheating the oven and then mixing all of the wet ingredients together in a bowl. Then add the dry ingredients.

Let the batter sit in the fridge for 30 minutes, and then using an ice cream scooper, scoop batter into cookies and place on to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

Top each cookie with a good amount of coconut sugar and then press down a little on each cookie using the palm of your hand. Bake in the oven, let cool and enjoy!
