Healthy Chewy Gingersnaps

Gingersnaps have been on my Recipe Wishlist for quite a few months now and I finally made a successful batch just last week.  Yay!

*does an embarrassing happy dance*

Healthy Chewy Gingersnaps

These healthy chewy Gingersnaps are soft, moist and sweet.  They are full of flavorful spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and ginger, but are made without all the hormone-filled butter and refined white sugar and even more refined brown sugar like typical cookie recipes.

  1. these are one of my favorite holiday cookies. you really cut out the sugar and fat! would like to try them.

  2. Could I try it with a real egg? Oh and could I use stevia instead of the stevia extract & the vanilla sugar?

    • Helen-
      I haven’t tried this recipe using a real egg instead of the egg replacer, but I’m sure it will work out just fine :)
      As for replacing the vanilla sugar, I’m not sure… I think it adds bulk and texture to both the dough and the cookies. If you do try omitting it though, I would recommend keeping a tablespoon or two of extra oat flour or brown rice flour nearby in case you need it to thicken/firm up the dough.
      Hope the substitutions work!! :)

  3. What a “HealthAble Treat!” I would love to add this on my website, could I reference you? PS They looks so moist!

  4. Hi! I just wanted to say that I love your blog! I have tried many of your recipes, each with delicious results! I’m new to the world of food blogging, and you definitely inspire me! Thank you so much!

  5. Hi Jess,

    I tried this recipe and followed along all but the stevia extract, I used two 1g packs of stevia powder. My cookie batter was very runny, like cake batter. Maybe next time I should add a few tbs of extra flour?


    • Kim-
      Hmmm… my dough wasn’t runny at all, and replacing the stevia shouldn’t have made a difference. I honestly have no clue what went wrong! Just wondering, did you weigh out the ingredients? Many ingredients (especially flours) are temperamental, so weighing the ingredients is always recommended. If you weighed out the ingredients and followed the directions in the recipe, I think in the next batch a few extra tablespoons of oat flour might help thicken the batter to dough.
      Fingers crossed!

  6. Hi Jess,

    No I didn’t use a weight this time, I’ll give that a try next time :)
