  • Bowl

  • Cookie sheet
  • Parchment Paper


  • 1/2 cup Coconut oil (solid form) You can use shortening as a substitute.
  • 1/2 cup Sugar White grandular or Organic Sugar Cane works
  • 3 tbsp Blackstrap Molasses
  • 3 tbsp Coconut Milk You can substitute any kind of milk alternative
  • 3 tbsp Organic Peanut Butter Heaping tablespoons, you can try it with Almond Butter or even Tahini.
  • 1 cup Gluten-free flour Heaping cup of Gluten-free flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Cloves
  • 1/4 tsp Ginger
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Salt (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350 and prepare the cookie sheet with a sheet of parchment paper on top.
  • Mix coconut oil, sugar, peanut butter, and coconut milk.
  • Add blackstrap molasses and mix.
  • In a seperate bowl stir flour, baking soda, and spices.
  • Gradually combine dry ingredients to wet with mixer. The dough will be thick. If it looks dry add a splash of coconut milk, if it looks wet add a tbsp of gluten-free flour.
  • Chill dough for 1 hour.
  • In a small bowl, put in 1/2 cup of sugar.
  • Make small 1 -1 1/4 inch balls and roll them in the sugar. Place them on the cookie sheet an inch or so apart.
  • Gently push the bottom of a fork into the cookie so it makes small groves.
  • Put the cookie sheet into the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes.
  • Let cookies cool for 10 minutes.
  • For an added bonus mix 2 tbsp peanut butter with 1/2 tsp of coconut oil and 2 tbsp of powder sugar. Put in the microwave for 20 seconds then stir, put it back in the microwave for another 15 seconds and stir. Then put a dollup on top of the baked cookie...kind of like a frosting.


The calories and price of the cookies are an educated guess.
