Gluten Free Soft Molasses Cookies
2 cups all-purpose gluten-free flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
6 tablespoons coconut oil
6 tablespoons molasses
1-2 tablespoons orange zest
In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, salt, and spices.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients.
Add the dry mix to the wet mix and stir just until combined.
You may need to refrigerate the dough for 1-2 hours or until the dough is firm enough to easily roll into balls.
Preheat the oven to 350 °F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
Roll the dough into 40 balls (about 1 1/2"), flatten them a little with the palm of your hand, and bake for 6-9 minutes.
Let the cookies cool for 3 minutes on the baking sheet and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days
