I found this at Real Food

Grain Free Molasses Cookies


When I was growing up, my grandma always had molasses cookies in her freezer.  Always.  In fact, to this day, I kind of prefer my molasses cookies to be slightly frozen.  Try it… you’ll like it.


I adapted this recipe from one I found here.

  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil or organic palm shortening
  • 1/4 molasses
  • 1/2 cup sucanat
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla

1.  Preheat oven to 350.

2.  Mix coconut oil (or palm shortening), molasses, sucanat, and egg together.

3.  Add remaining ingredients and mix well.

4.  Refrigerate dough for about 45 minutes.  (You must do this.)

5.  Roll into balls (you could roll them in additional sucanat, but I don’t) and bake for about 8 minutes.

Apple - Walnut Skillet Cake

Apple Topping

3 1/2 Golden Delicious apples
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1/2 cup organic sugar or other sweetener of choice, I used 1/4 c. honey
1/2 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped (optional)

Cake Batter

1/2 Golden Delicious apple
1 1/2 c. almond flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup organic sugar or sweetener of choice, I used 1/4 c. honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger (I forgot to add it and the cake was fine)
2 large eggs
1/2 cup sour cream or Greek-style yogurt (I also forgot this and it really needs it to give the baking powder something to work with)

1. Core the apples and cut them in quarters.

2. In a 10 1/4-inch cast-iron or other oven-proof skillet, melt the butter over medium low heat. Add sweetener and stir well to combine. Arrange apples decoratively, cut sides up, in the bottom of the skillet and sprinkle walnuts evenly between the apple quarters. Cook over low heat without stirring for 30 minutes, until apples are tender and the sugar has caramelized.

3. Preheat oven to 350F. Chop the apple half finely. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.

4. Beat butter and sweetener with an electric mixer or hand-held whisk until fluffy. Beat in vanilla and ginger and add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add sour cream or yogurt, with mixer on low speed, and gradually beat in the flour mixture until just combined. Add chopped apple to batter, folding in gently.

5. With skillet off the heat, spoon batter over the caramelized apple topping. Spread evenly with a spatula, being careful not to disturb the apples, and leaving a 1/4-inch border of cooked apples uncovered. Bake cake in center of preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until golden brown.

6. Remove skillet from oven and allow to cool 10 minutes on a rack. Slide a thin knife around the edge, place a serving plate on top of the skillet, and invert it so the cake ends up on the plate (carefully, so that it doesn’t end up on the floor!). Serve warm or room temperature with whatever topping you like (whipped cream or vanilla ice cream are naturals).

Mocha Cake:

  • 1/2 cup(s) unsweetened cocoa, plus additional for dusting
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 2 tablespoon(s) instant coffee or instant espresso powder or granules
  • 2 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
  • 6 large eggs, separated
  • 1/2 cup(s) granulated sugar

Chocolate Glaze:

  • 4 ounce(s) semisweet chocolate
  • 3 tablespoon(s) butter or margarine
  • 2 tablespoon(s) corn syrup

Coffee Cream Filling:

  • 1 cup(s) heavy or whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon(s) instant coffee or instant espresso powder or granules
  • 1/4 cup(s) confectioners' sugar


  1. Prepare Mocha Cake: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease 15 1/2" by 10 1/2" jelly-roll pan; line with waxed paper. Lightly grease waxed paper.
  2. In small bowl, combine cocoa, baking powder, and salt. In cup, combine instant coffee and vanilla, stirring to dissolve coffee.
  3. In large bowl, with mixer at high speed, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Sprinkle in 1/4 cup granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until whites stand in stiff, glossy peaks when beaters are lifted. Set whites aside.
  4. In another large bowl, using same beaters, with mixer at high speed, beat egg yolks and remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar 2 minutes or until thick and pale yellow. With mixer at low speed, add coffee mixture and beat until blended. Beat in cocoa mixture just until blended. With rubber spatula, gently fold egg whites into cocoa mixture, one-third at a time.
  5. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until top of cake springs back when lightly pressed with finger. Cool cake in pan on wire rack 10 minutes.
  6. Sprinkle clean kitchen towel with some cocoa. Immediately invert warm cake onto towel; carefully peel off waxed paper. Starting from a long side, roll up cake with towel inside, jelly-roll fashion. Transfer roll, seam side down, to wire rack to cool completely, about 1 hour.
  7. Prepare Chocolate Glaze: In 1-quart saucepan, heat chocolate with butter and corn syrup over low heat, stirring occasionally until smooth. Remove saucepan from heat. Let glaze stand at room temperature 15 to 20 minutes to cool slightly and thicken.
  8. Prepare Coffee Cream Filling: In medium bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat cream and instant coffee until soft peaks form. Add confectioners' sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.
  9. Gently unroll cooled cake. With metal spatula, spread filling evenly over cake almost to edges. Starting from same long side, roll cake without towel. (Cake may crack slightly as you roll it.) Cut 1 1/2-inch-thick diagonal slice off 1 end of roll and reserve. Transfer roll to large cookie sheet.
  10. Spread some glaze over roll, but do not spread glaze on ends. Place reserved end piece on side of roll to resemble cut branch. Spread remaining glaze over branch, leaving cut side unglazed. Refrigerate cake, uncovered, until glaze sets, then cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour or up to overnight.
  11. With 2 metal spatulas, gently transfer roll to long platter. Garnish platter with Coffee Meringue Mushrooms if you like.
