Directions for double ginger molasses breakfast cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. In a large bowl, add oat flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Whisk well. Mix in raisins, crystallized ginger, walnuts and/or any other mix-ins.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk coconut sugar, oil, and eggs until well combined. Add vanilla, grated ginger, and molasses and whisk well. Stir in oats and mix again. Fold in flour mixture and stir, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl, until all ingredients are mixed in.
  3. Cover and place in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes. In the meantime, line two large baking trays with parchment paper.
  4. Once dough has chilled, removed from fridge and preheat oven to 350° F. Using heaping tablespoons or an icecream scooper, spoon clumps of dough on to baking trays (space 1-2” apart).
  5. Bake 15-18 minutes, until set and lightly crisped on the edges. Cool on a wire rack and enjoy!
