Full recipe in video below


  • ¾ cup light butter softened

  • 1 cup granulated sugar substitute - I use Lakanto - to order:

  • 1 large egg

  • ¼ cup molasses

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour - i use Fiber Gourmet - to order:

  • 2 tsp baking soda

  • ½ tsp salt

  • 1 tsp cinnamon if you like a strong cinnamon flavor, increase to 2 tsp total

  • ½ tsp dried ground ginger if you like a strong ginger flavor, increase to 1-2 tsp total

  • Optional: granulated sugar to roll cookie dough balls in.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  • First, mix together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, approximately 2-3 minutes with an electric mixer.

  • Next, add egg and molasses and mix well.

  • In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and ginger, stirring to combine.

  • Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until well combined.

  • Form or scoop balls of dough that are slightly smaller than a golf ball. If desired, roll dough balls in granulated sugar after forming. Place them on a baking sheet approximately 2” to 3” apart to allow room for cookies to spread.

  • Finally, bake for 10-12 minutes, remove from oven and allow cookies to cool on baking for approximately ten minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
