If there is one thing I am certain of at this very moment it’s that this world could use some more happiness and positivity in it.
I’m not going to pretend like I know how to solve this problem, but cookies can’t hurt.
Everyone loves cookies, me included, though for some crazy reason I often find them difficult to bake perfectly. Not these Almond Ginger Cookies. They are foolproof, gluten free, Paleo friendly (depending on who you asked, but based on my research molasses seems okay), and full of all that gingerbread-y Christmas flavor we all crave.
When I put them in the oven, I wasn’t exactly sure what would happen, but they puffed up and developed these gorgeous, shiny tops. The molasses and ginger work together to create that deep, rich flavor with the right hint of spice. And they are oh so easy to make. No chilling. No mixers. No weird ingredients. Just good cookies.
I don’t know about you, but good cookies definitely make me happier.Print

I love ginger cookies! A gluten-free version sounds delicious!
Ginger cookies are always good, aren’t they? A great sounding version with almond butter, I don’t think I have ever used that in baking.
I highly recommend baking with almond butter. It is perfect for gluten free baking and I really love the flavor it lends with a natural sweetness.
