I decided to squeeze in one more holiday cookie recipe before the New Year! These gluten-free gingersnaps are the best cookie I've ever made, and I might even go as far to say my new favorite cookie of all time! They are made with nut and oat flours and pack a serious flavor punch, thanks to tons of spices and fresh ginger! When I think about the perfect cookie, I think crispy outside and soft inside. These are exactly that!

Instructions Checklist
  • Beat butter, brown sugar, and 1/2 cup cane sugar together in a bowl using an electric mixer until creamy. Add egg and mix to combine. Mix in molasses and vanilla extract.

  • Mix oat flour, almond flour, coconut flour, fresh ginger, ground ginger, baking soda, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon nutmeg, and cloves together in a separate bowl. Add to butter mixture slowly and combine. Refrigerate dough for at least 1 hour, to overnight; dough will be very wet before it's chilled.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Combine 1/4 cup cane sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg in a shallow dish.

  • Scoop dough by tablespoonfuls and roll into balls. Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture to coat and place onto the prepared baking sheets, making sure not to overcrowd as they will flatten and spread.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until set and golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cookies sit for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Serve warm or let cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

Cook's Notes:

You can use cashew flour instead of almond, or a combination of both.

Use grass-fed unsalted butter, if possible. You can use coconut oil instead of butter, if preferred.

I accidentally thought that I was supposed to flatten them before baking. They turned out great anyway. Thin and crisp-chewy. So yummy. Read More
