Yesterday, we brought you some quick & easy treats to whip up with the kids.  Today, we're featuring a sneaky cookie....they're good for you and won't make your kids have a sugar crash.  Plus, they taste like a cookie should!
But don't take our word for it...try them out!

Apple Ginger Snaps

  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 2 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup flax meal
  • 1  tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup rolled oats (for topping)
Grating fresh ginger
  1. Mix sugar, oil, molasses and applesauce.
  2. In another bowl, mix all dry ingredients except oats.
  3. Combine the two bowls, and thoroughly mix.
  4. Pinch of pieces of dough and roll into balls.
  5. Once all the balls are on the pan, use your palm to flatten them.

We used the leftover dough to make a mini-pie.  It was delicious!
