Ginger Crinkles

Ginger Crinkles

These are really healthy and yummm!!

2 1/4 cups flour (i like King Arthur unbleached)

2 tsp baking soda

1tsp ginger

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2tsp ground cloves

1/4tsp sea salt

1 cup brown sugar

3/4 cups coconut oil melted

1/4 cup dark molasses

1 large egg

raw sugar for rolling balls in

preheat oven to 400

Combine egg, brown sugar and molasses and beat on medium speed until smooth. Add coconut oil and continue mixing until all of the oil is incorporated into the first mixture.

Sift together flour, baking soda, spices and salt and then add to liquid mixture. Mix on low-medium speed until all of the dry ingredients are incorporated and it forms a smooth oily dough. Make walnut sized balls of dough and drop them into a bowl of raw sugar and roll around until coated on all sides. I use a #40 disher to make uniform balls of dough and to speed of this process. Using this disher a single batch produces 24 cookies.

Bake about 2 inches apart on parchment paper for about 10 minutes or until cookies puff up and split apart on top. After removing from oven, slide parchment paper from cookie sheet onto a cooking rack and allow cookies to cool before removing them.
