  • 1g Cinnamon
  • 2g Ground Ginger
  • 1g Baking Soda
  • 59ml Coconut Oil (melted)
  • 61g Unsweetened Applesauce

2. In a mixing bowl, combine the coconut flour, tapioca flour, cinnamon, ginger and baking soda.

3. Add the coconut oil, applesauce and molasses. Stir until the mixture is thick and the ingredients are evenly combined.

4. Gently roll a tablespoonful of batter at a time and transfer to the baking sheet. Flatten each ball using your fingers or a fork.
