Molasses Spice Cookies (Gluten Free/Low Carb)

It is typical winter day here….

Sugar Free Molasses Spice Cookies

When I see a view like that out my door, I know it’s time to have something baking in my oven. Major dilemma though, I was out of eggs! What’s a mama to bake?

I decide to try my hand at some molasses spice cookies! They were pretty fast to make and they are kid approved. Soft, kind of crumbly with a nice amount of spice. Perfect on a cold day with a cup of coffee!

If you are a Trim Healthy Mama this is an S cookie. I know molasses is not a legal ingredient in the THM world, but for this you use 1/2 tsp. (1 tsp is about 5 grams of carbs) that is for the entire batch. This makes about 1 1/2 dozen cookies so you should be in the clear unless you eat the entire batch…which I don’t recommend. :)

      Hi Rebecca! I’m not sure. :) I’d assume it may be similar but I’ve never had ginger snaps. Let me know if you do try!
