Marina Cortese, holistic nutritionist and owner of Oats & Ivy, shares her recipe for Healthy Ginger Molasses Cookies.


  •  1 cup almond butter
  • 3 tbsp blackstrap molasses
  • 2 chia eggs (see step 1 in recipe)
  • 1 tbsp freshly grated ginger
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • Pinch of cloves
  • Pinch of black pepper



  1. Mix 2 tbsp of chia seeds with 6 tbsp of water. Let sit and stir occasionally until texture is gooey and gel-like.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  3. In a bowl, mix together almond butter, molasses, chia eggs and grated ginger, until smooth.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together all dry ingredients. Combine with wet ingredients and mix together.
  5. Using a spoon, drop the dough 2 inches apart on a baking sheet.
  6. Bake cookies for about 8 minutes. The cookies will puff up during baking but will flatten and crackle as they cool.
  7. Cool on baking sheets as this will allow the cookies to firm up.
