I’ve tried so many different variations of gluten free gingerbread biscuits and got incredibly frustrated when they turned out either crumbly or flavourless; oh and don’t even get me started on making your own gluten free flour mix (who knew so many starches existed?), so I set out to make my own.
I soon discovered that the key to these Gingerbread recipe is the Blackstrap Molasses. Blackstrap Molasses is the most nutrient dense of all molasses varieties and just 2 tbsp. contains a wide variety of essential nutrients:
13.2% of our RDI of iron
11.7% of our RDI of calcium
7.3% of our RDI of magnesium
18% of our RDI of manganese
9.7% of our RDI of potassium
5% of our RDI of vitamin B6
3.4% of our RDI of selenium
Pretty special no? It also gives the cookies a caramelised flavour… delicious!
