These delectable treats not only satisfy your taste buds but also adhere to plant-based and gluten-free principles, making them a guilt-free delight.

Ingredients: Let’s dive into the wholesome ingredients that make these cookies both delicious and suitable for various dietary preferences:

  1. Almond Flour: A nutrient-dense alternative to traditional flour, almond flour adds a rich, nutty flavor and a soft, chewy texture to the cookies.
  2. Molasses: The star ingredient that gives these cookies their distinct flavor. Molasses adds a deep, rich sweetness and a hint of caramel.
  3. Ground Flaxseed: Acting as an egg substitute, ground flaxseed binds the ingredients together while contributing to the cookies’ nutritional profile.
  4. Coconut Sugar: A natural sweetener with a lower glycemic index than traditional sugar, coconut sugar adds sweetness without causing a rapid spike in blood sugar levels.
  5. Baking Soda: This leavening agent helps the cookies rise while keeping them soft and chewy.
  6. Spices (Cinnamon, Ginger, Cloves): A blend of warming spices complements the molasses flavor, creating a cozy and comforting taste.
  7. Vanilla Extract: Adding a touch of sweetness and depth, vanilla extract enhances the overall flavor of the cookies.
