Chewy Gingerbread Cookies Recipe (Paleo and Allergen Friendly)

This recipe has been moved to my new food blog, Worth Cooking. Read the recipe for Chewy Ginger Cookies here.

For convenience sake, here is the ingredient list:
1 ½ cups almond flour OR dry roasted, unsalted, sunflower seeds ground into a meal* (not almond meal)
2 Tablespoons coconut flour
4 Tablespoons ground golden flax
½ cup sucanat
¼ cup water
¼ cup molasses
1 ½ – 2” piece of fresh ginger (longer for a narrow piece, shorter for wide), peeled
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons olive oil or coconut oil
¼ teaspoon baking soda
⅜ teaspoon cream of tartar
¼ teaspoon salt
extra sucanant
*To dry roast sunflower seeds bake in a single later at 350 for 5-7 minutes until they get fragrant and just barely begin to darken. Stir a few times during that few minutes. It takes a little more then 1 1/2 cups sunflower seeds to make enough meal for this recipe.

    • I think you could omit the flax and water, add a few eggs (2-3) and another teaspoon or two of coconut flour to help firm it up.
