These molasses cookies were inspired by a vegan blog that many of our members rave about, Oh She Glows – but taken to the next level. Blackstrap Molasses is the highest quality and most nutritious kind of molasses- it has a high iron content, and is high in copper, calcium, and magnesium. Spelt flour is used in place of white flour – spelt is an ancient grain higher in protein and fiber than its counterparts, and is also richer in vitamins and minerals, and is typically easily digestible. Flax, cinnamon, and ginger add extra nutrients to these otherwise naughty tasting cookies.
