  1. This recipe is so nostalgic to me, The molasses reminds me of breakfast in the south with biscuits and molasses. This recipe is also very easy to make.

    1. Mikki, It’s an unrefined sweetener that has a slight molasses taste. You can find in most organic sections of the grocery store. You can also use coconut palm sugar instead of sucanat, which can be found near the regular white sugar.

  2. I just made these, and all I can say, is THANK YOU for another amazing recipe! My husband tried one and he said they were better than store-bought ones! That is saying A LOT in my house!!!

  3. I love the cookies. How can I tone down the coconut oil flavor? It overpowered the ginger in my recipe. I even added a bit more ginger (love that bite!) but , alas, coconut oil is still stronger.
    Thank you very much
