Throughout the blogosphere, I’ve been reading about many longing for fall and the spiced treats that come along with it. With the heat that we’ve had lately, I mirror those sentiments, but of course, I acted on it as well. Next thing I knew, my apartment smelled like Christmas, and my favorite cookies were coming out of the oven. I am not ashamed. Sometimes, you just need a bit of fall in the midst of a sweltering summer, to keep your sanity, of course.
- 1 cup white whole wheat flour
- 1 cup quinoa flour (quinoa ground up in coffee grinder)
- 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp cloves
- 1/2 tsp ginger
- 7 packets truvia (or 1/2 cup brown sugar)
- 3 Tbsp butter
- 3 Tbsp coconut oil
- 1/3 cup molasses
- 1 egg
- truvia or sugar, for rolling
In a small bowl, combine the quinoa flour, white whole wheat flour, baking soda, and spices. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter, coconut oil, and truvia together. Once light and fluffy, mix in the molasses and egg. Slowly add in the flour mixture, and mix until a dough forms.
Scoop the dough by the tablespoon, and roll into balls. Roll the balls into truvia or sugar, and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Flatten the balls slightly with the palm of your hand.
Bake at 350ºF for 5-8 minutes, until slightly puffed and barely golden. Allow to cool on a wire rack, and store in an airtight container.
