  • Beat 1 cup sugar and margarine together in a medium bowl until creamy. Beat in egg and molasses until well blended.

  • Combine oat flour, ginger, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and cardamom in another bowl; stir into the molasses mixture to form a dough.

  • Roll dough into 1-inch balls and rolls in the remaining 1/2 cup sugar. Place cookies 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until tops are slightly cracked, 15 to 18 minutes. Let cookies cool for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook's Note:

You can make oat flour by grinding old-fashioned oats.

I hate to give this such a bad rating but this recipe just did not work for me. I followed it exactly and ended up with a lace cookie that tasted only of sugar. The description describes these as being thin and crunchy but they are waaayy thin. They spread out massively while baking so I could only do 6 on a cookie sheet at a time--and if they were baked more than 12 minutes they tasted burnt. I was hopeful that they'd taste ok even after spreading out so bad but the spices and molasses flavor gets lost in all the sugar taste. I don't think I'll make these again. Sorry. Read More

About 4 cups of oats makes 2 cups of oat flour FWIW. I added 1/3 of cup of molasses and added another teaspoon of ginger because I love ginger. I also added some vanilla and a dash of nutmeg and cloves. 15 minutes worked perfect. The cookies turned out perfectly. Thanks for the share. Read More
