  1. Real Healthy Gingersnaps

    In the spirit of the holidays, here is a wholesome cookie recipe that is packed with the flavors of the season.

    These cookies are made with grain-free flours and coconut sugar to make it more fitness-friendly so that you can stay on track while enjoying a treat.

    Keep in mind that the dough expands while baking, which is why you’ll need to space the cookies at least 3 inches apart on the baking sheet. Don’t flatten out the balls when you put them on the pan, either. Let them expand naturally in the cooking process and enjoy the pretty cracks that come as a result.

    Servings: 50 Cookies

    • 2 cups Raw Pecans
    • ¼ cup coconut flour
    • ½ cup blanched almond flour
    • ½ cup arrowroot starch
    • 2 teaspoons baking soda
    • ½ teaspoon of sea salt
    • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
    • ½ teaspoon ground cardamom
    • ½ teaspoon black pepper
    • ⅓ cup coconut oil
    • ¼ cup coconut cream
    • 1 cup coconut palm sugar
    • ⅓ cup molasses
    • 1 egg


    1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
    2. Toast the pecans in a dry skillet over medium heat, often stirring, for 5 minutes, until fragrant and golden. Set aside to cool.
    3. Pulse the pecans in a food processor until finely ground. Add the coconut flour, almond flour, arrowroot, baking soda, salt, ginger, cardamom, pepper, oil, cream, 3/4 cup of the sugar, molasses, and egg. Pulse until thoroughly combined.
    4. Gather the dough into a ball, wrap it with plastic wrap, and place it in the freezer for 20 minutes.
    5. Place the remaining 1/4 cup coconut sugar in a bowl. Form the dough into 1-tablespoon-size balls and roll them in the sugar. Arrange the dough balls on the prepared baking sheet about 3 inches apart and do not press the dough down. Bake for 8–12 minutes, until golden.
