Spicy Molasses Cookies: [Gluten Free, Refined Sugar-Free]

Spicy Molasses Cookies: [Gluten Free, Refined Sugar-Free]

Classic snickerdoodles are fabulous it’s true. Soft, buttery, sugary, rolled in more sugar before baking…..you know what I’m talking about don’t you? I’d love to eat them myself, I would ….. the problem is I can’t stop eating them and that’s why I can’t make them typical and traditional.

Once I realized I needed to avoid white flour and refined sugar baking and products I knew I had to find a way to enjoy life without them and be happy about it. It isn’t always easy, but I don’t crave sugary baked goods anymore and that my friends, is the most freeing result of living sugar-free one day at a time.
