Healthy-Ish Holiday Gingerbread Cookie Recipe

During the holidays, it's okay to let loose and enjoy yourself but you still have to keep it in moderation. We found this Gingerbread Recipe that's healthy-ish compared to traditional recipes for you to give a try over the holidays.
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup of brown sugar
  • ¼ cup of molasses
  • ¼ cup of almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons of organic applesauce [Try this Organic guava applesauce]
  • 2 teaspoons of ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons of all spice
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 ¼ cup of wheat flower (Can sub coconut or almond flour)
.
Directions:
 
  1. In a medium bowl, add 1 egg, ½ cup brown sugar, ¼ cup molasses, ¼ cup almond butter and 2 tablespoons applesauce; vigorously whisk to thoroughly combine.
  2. To the wet ingredients, stir in 2 teaspoons ground ginger, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 2 teaspoons allspice, ¼ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon baking soda, 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour, and ½ cup wheat flour until well combined. Turn out onto plastic wrap and form into a rough ball; cover with plastic wrap and chill at least 1 hour, or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  4. Flour a flat surface and a rolling pin, then roll out the dough ¼-inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut out gingerbread men, about 25-35 total. Place gingerbread men on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
  5. Bake about 8 minutes, until puffed and slightly firmed. Let rest on the pan for 2 to 3 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack. Store covered at room temperature for several days or freeze for several months.
  6. Enjoy!
