Description

These Gingerbread Cookie Bars are the perfect soft and chewy holiday time dessert. So much easier (and tastier) than individual gingerbread cookies!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/3 cup almond butter 
  • 1/4 cup molasses 
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil 
  • 1 egg 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda

Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup plain green yogurt
  • 4 oz cream cheese, well softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar 

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the almond butter, molasses, coconut sugar, coconut oil, egg, and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Stir in the almond flour, ginger, cinnamon , allspice, salt, and baking soda.
  4. Pour batter into prepared pan, smooth with a spatula then bake for 30 minutes. Let cool completely before icing. 
  5. For the icing: in a stand mixer or or with a hand mixer, beat the yogurt and cream cheese until smooth and silky. Slowly add in the powdered sugar until well combined. Frost once the cake is completely cool. Enjoy!

Notes

  1. For the spices you can also substitute 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice in place of all of the spices for a similar result.
  2. The icing is optional and the bars will still be super yummy without it (but who doesn’t love cream cheese icing?!?)
