pile of spiced molasses cookies

Cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and molasses combine with canola oil for a healthier version of spiced molasses cookies.

PREP TIME: 5 min / COOK TIME: 10 min / TOTAL TIME: 17 min

SERVINGS: 42          

2 c whole grain pastry flour

2 tsp ground cinnamon

2 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp baking soda

½ tsp ground cloves

½ teaspoon salt

1 c sugar

¼ c unsweetened applesauce

¼ c canola oil

¼ c molasses

2 lg egg whites

  1. PREHEAT the oven to 350°F. Coat 2 large baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2. MIX the flour, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda, cloves, and salt in a medium bowl.
  3. COMBINE the sugar, applesauce, oil, molasses, and egg whites in a large bowl. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat for 1 minute, or until well-combined. With the mixer at low speed, gradually beat in the flour mixture.
  4. DROP the dough by level tablespoons about 1″ apart onto the prepared baking sheets.
  5. BAKE 1 sheet at a time for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool on a rack for 2 minutes. Remove from the sheet and place on the rack to cool completely.

Tip: Check the oven after about 8 minutes to see whether the cookies are done. Baked goods with molasses have a tendency to overbrown, so the baking time may be shorter than whats suggested.
