Trick your children with these ginger snaps! They use raw sugar and spelt flour... but your kids will never find out! These are wonderful and you can't even tell they are good for you!
- 1 cup raw sugar
- 3⁄4 cup butter
- 1 egg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons molasses
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 3 cups whole wheat flour
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Mix all ingredients, soften the butter and add the flour last.
- You may need to put the dough in the freezer if it is not firm enough, or you can just continue.
- Roll into 1" balls and roll them in sugar.
- Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 7-8 minute.
I was really disappointed with this recipe. I found the exact same recipe elsewhere on the internet, but it only had 2 cups of flour, which is much more appropriate. I had to add some oil and another egg to get these to work at all.
So yummy! I am pregnant and they are a perfect sub for store bought gingersnaps when i am nauseous. Thank you for a "healthy" recipe!
