My grandma used to make me molasses cookies when I was little. They are my favorite. I tried some of the other recipes out there for them and all of them came out really hard, I like soft molasses cookies and want to stay on plan through this holiday season. So I had to see what I could figure out.

I had really good luck with my rolled sugar cookies from coconut flour (I’m currently updating that recipe) and figured I would tweak that a bit to make the cookies I’ve been missing.Disclosure Statement

They came out yummy 🙂
Here’s the recipe I used.

  1. Is the pyure stevia straight stevia or a combo of stevia and erythritol. I don't have pyure but I do have truvia and powdered stevia extract. Which should I use?
