Molasses Cookies Done Right




MIX all dry ingredients:


2 ¼ c SmartFood Flour Mix



1 c teff flour

½ c sorghum flour

½ c garbanzo bean flour

¼ c navy bean flour


1 t baking soda

¼ t salt

1 ½ t cinnamon

1 ½ t ground ginger

½ t cloves

¼ t ground allspice

¼ t black pepper


Cream Wet Ingredients:


¾ c chilled coconut oil

1 lg egg yolk

1 t vanilla

3 T blackstrap molasses

1 T honey

2/3 c demara sugar (or use a combo of brown and organic/unbleached granulated sugar)

*demara sugar is a natural, large crystal sugar, I love the texture it gives and it looks in appearance halfway between organic unbleached sugar and brown sugar but with larger crystals.


Take heaping teaspoons of dough and roll into balls. Roll the balls in sugar and place on a greased baking sheet one inch apart. Flatten gently. Bake at 375 degrees for 9 minutes, let them continue baking on sheet pan after it is removed from the oven for about 7 minutes.
