G is for GingerSnap

My dear friend, Susi, first introduced me to these natural-tummy-ache-calming cookies back when I was pregnant with my daughter and very sick ALL the time!  Ginger has a calming effect on the GI system…plus they are just plain YUMMY! I just made some for a friend who was expecting a baby and froze a few of the extras…they are so yummy to warm up in the microwave and have with some tea, especially now that the weather is a bit cooler!


Susi’s recipe came originally from here…but I have modified it now to include “baby-stepified” ingredients!

Ginger Snaps


  • 2 3/4 cups WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR
  • 1 teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ORGANIC cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ORGANIC ginger
  • 1 cup ORGANIC brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 cup ORGANIC rBGH free butter, softened
  • 1 egg (Cage Free, ORGANIC)
  • 1/4 cup light molasses (un-Sulphured)


Combine flour, soda, and spices in a bowl and set aside. Cream sugar and butter. Beat in egg and molasses until light and fluffy. Stir in flour mixture just until blended. Chill for 2 hours or more. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.Shape dough into 3/4-inch balls, roll in granulated sugar, and place on lightly greased baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Flatten each ball with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. Bake about 8 to 10 minutes, until set.

    They are SOOO good! I loved that they weren’t terribly sweet. It really gave you a chance to taste the ginger. YUM! Thanks, K 😉

    Too bad I cant have them since I am Salicylate Intolerant and ginger and cinnamon are so high in sals. But they sure look delicious.

    You know that there is no such thing as baking soda WITH Aluminum, right? Should the recipe actually be calling for aluminum free BAKING powder (rather than baking soda)? Here is info on that: http://crunchybetty.com/the-great-baking-soda-anti-hoax/
