chewy molasses cookies

These cookies are a take on the classic molasses cookie. They use almond flour as a base, making them friendly to many food intolerances, and adding a bit of nuttiness which is a great compliment to the deep molasses flavor.

    These look delicious! For our vegan readers, these cookies look super-easy to veganize… just swap agave for the honey and vegan butter for the ghee:

    Yummy-looking recipe! :)
