Two Point Soft Ginger Cookies

 

These Two Point Soft Ginger Cookies are insanely delicious. Over the few weeks, I’ve been working on creating low point cookies recipes. I was able to get these bad boys down to two points-and they are perfect-they have just the right amount of spices — ginger, cinnamon, cloves and molasses. They are soft, chewy and super delicious!

What are the key ingredients to making these Ginger Cookies low in points?

The two key ingredients to making these ginger cookies low in points is using a zero smart point brown sugar substitute along with Land o’ Lakes light butter made with canola oil.

I use Land o’ Lake light butter for all of my baking recipes. I have found that it has the lowest points and it tastes amazing! You can find it at most grocery stores next to the butter. It comes in a tub-with a green lid. Be sure that it says light butter-they sell one that is regular that is made with canola oil as well-so be sure to check that it says light.

 

 

How do I make these Soft Ginger Cookies?

In a medium mixing bowl combine, flour, ginger, cinnamon, cloves.

 

In a separate large bowl, beat together light butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar substitutes. Add egg and molasses and beat until smooth and creamy.

 

Using your hands, shape dough into 2-inch balls.

 

Roll in sugar substitute and place on a cookie sheet that has been covered with parchment paper. 

Repeat until 24 cookies are made.

Bake for 11-13 minutes or until light and puffy.

Let cookies cool for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to completely cool.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups self rising flour (I use Gold Medal) 
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 6 Tbsp Land O’ Lakes light butter made with canola oil
  • 1/2 cup zero point granulated sugar substitute ( I use Lakanto Monkfruit Classic Sweetener)  
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar substitute ( I use Sukrin Gold)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup zero point white granulated sugar substitute, to roll dough in

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl combine, flour, ginger, cinnamon, cloves.
  3. In a separate large bowl, beat together light butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar substitutes. Add egg and molasses and beat until smooth and creamy.
  4. Add a little flour mixture at a time and continue to beat as much as you can until all the flour mixture is incoprporated.
  5. Using your hands, shape dough into 2-inch balls. Roll in sugar substitute and place on a cookie sheet that has been covered with parchment paper. 
  6. Repeat until 24 cookies are made.
  7. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until light and puffy.
  8. DO NOT OVERBAKE or these will be hard and overly chewy.
  9. Let cookies cool for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to completely cool.
  10. Store in an airtight container up to 5 days or freeze for up to a month.

Notes:

In order to calculate the smart points on a recipe you have to enter the ingredients in manually (by creating a recipe in the recipe builder) not by the nutritional information. Since this recipe contains zero point items the app doesn’t realize there are zero point items in the recipe and will calculate it based only off the nutritional information which is not accurate.
