Whole Wheat Molasses Ginger Cookies

My husband love molasses cookies. In fact he loves just about anything that has the flavor of molasses. I have several different versions of molasses cookies that I make. I have been adapting my favorite recipe some. I have also add some whole wheat to it to make it a little healthier.

This is one of those recipes where you really do not notice the whole wheat. The molasses flavor is strong enough that it is the main flavor not the whole wheat. Adding the whole wheat to these turned out much better then I expected. My husband did not even know they had whole wheat in them. Well, I guess now he will because he reads my blog. :)

These are really good and I will be making these often. I love having a cookie that is at least a little healthy.

  1. I love making my baked goodies healthier. Yum, molasses cookies are soooo good! I love just smelling them as they are baking.
    LOL about letting the cat out of the bag on the cookies to your husband! 😀

    what a great recipe — I bet the whole wheat isn’t even detectable in these cookies.

    These are yummy. I made a batch this morning. The smell initially made me worry that the molasses (or black treacle that I used as it seemed the best equivalent in my cupboard) would be overpowering but they really aren’t. You cannot detect the wholewheat flour atall. Have you tried making them entirely from wholewheat flour before?
    This will be a recipe I make again :-)

  8. these looks yummy! I have these ingredients readily available inside my kitchen cabinets and I will try cooking it today. This is one great recipe I am looking for to get my children to eat healthy but yummy foods. Thanks!
