Amazing Gluten-Free Ginger Cookies (Nourishing and GAPS Friendly)


This made about 36 cookies!


1/2 cup of lard (or other fat)
3 cups almond flour (or other nut)
1 TBSP vanilla extract
1/4 tsp baking soda
1- 2 TBSP fresh ginger or powder, use less if it’s powder.
2 TBSP molasses
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 • F


Melt 1/2 cup of lard (or coconut oil, butter)


3 cups almond flour, meal or just ground up almonds/nuts
Add 1/4 tsp baking soda and 1-2 TSBP ginger powder and
1 tsp of cinnamon

Mix ‘er up!

Add the 5 TBSP of honey and 1 TBSP
of vanilla and 2 TBSP of molasses, all to melted lard.


Mix liquid into dry ingredients, and smile.

Drop Tablespoons of batter onto greased cookie sheet (could use parchment paper too) Space them well, as they expand quite a bit.


Bake for 7-12 minutes at 350 F, until edges are browned lightly.


*note* the second and third batches turned out thicker. I think it’s because the batter sat for longer.
