Whole Wheat Soft and Chewy Ginger Snap Recipe

I got this recipe from the Mother's Legacy Cookbook that our local MOPS group put together as a fundraiser. My friend, Kendal, submitted this recipe. Fat-free it is not, but it is made strictly with whole grains and unrefined sugar and natural fat.  This is the best ginger snap recipe I've ever tasted and making it healthy didn't compromise the taste or texture. 

Whole Wheat Soft and Chewy Ginger Snap Recipe:

2 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 tsp backing soda
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp sea salt ( I prefer Celtic Sea Salt)
3/4 cup softened butter
2/3 cup sucanat
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c molasses
turbinado (raw sugar) - optional

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix together all wet ingredients, then add all dry ingredients (I just turn my Kitchen Aid on low and start dumping). Form dough into 1 1/2 inch balls, roll in turbinado (or sucanat) if desired. Cook on cookie sheets (I use a stoneware bar pan) 11 minutes or until edges are done, but looks raw between cracks. Cool. Makes about 1 dozen good sized cookies. Enjoy!

Those do look yummy! Emma and I just made PB Blossom cookies (AKA PB cookies w/ a Kiss} that's a great idea to roll the cookies in raw sugar, it's so course, makes them sparkle!!

Oh, those look SO good! I don't have any sugar in the house right now, but I'll be trying these when the next Azure order gets in. :)

I cant wait to try these cookies! Ive never heard of chewy ginger snap cookies. Growing up I always loved them but they were always so hard hence the snap part but I really want to try these!
