Serves: 5
Total Calories: 174
Yield: 16 cookies


1/4 cup canola oil
2 tablespoons sesame tahini or cashew butter
1 tablespoon date sugar (optional)
1/4 cup apple butter
1/4 teaspoon powdered stevia extract
3/4 teaspoon stevia concentrate
1 1/2 tablespoons blackstrap molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/8 teaspoon cloves


• Preheat the oven to 400°F. Oil a cookie sheet.
• Mix the oil and tahini or cashew butter together in a mixing bowl. Mix in the date sugar. Add the apple butter, stevia extract, stevia concentrate, molasses, and vanilla. Mix well.
• Mix the flour, leavening, salt, and spices together in a bowl. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Chill the batter for better handling.
• Roll out onto a floured cutting board. Flour the rolling pin. Use cookie cutters. Place the cookies on the baking sheet, and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Thinner cookies will be crisper.

NOTE: If you don’t have the stevia concentrate use 1/2 teaspoon powdered stevia extract and 2 tablespoons molasses. If you don’t want to use the molasses, use a total of 1 teaspoon of stevia concentrate, 1/4 teaspoon powdered stevia extract and about 1 extra tablespoon of apple butter.
