Festive Grain-Free Almond Ginger Cookies

I call these Genny’s Gingers because I created them for my ginger-loving grandma, Geneva.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup Almond Butter*

2 tsp Ground Ginger

1 tbsp Ground Cinnamon

2 cups Almond Meal

1 tbsp Ground Flax Meal

6 tbsp Honey

1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract

¼ cup Organic 100% Unsweetened Chocolate Chips

Optional: Fruit Juice Sweetened Dried Cranberries (for decoration).

 

Directions:

*If you open the jar and the almond butter has separated, you’ll need to mix the oil back together with the almond butter and then measure

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Place all the ingredients in a bowl and stir to thoroughly combine.

Roll the dough by hand into 1inch balls and lightly press down with a fork.

Decorate with cranberries if you choose.

Place the cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden. The cookies will crisp as they cool.

Allow cookies to cool. They store well in an airtight container.

Yields 24 cookies.
