OR RECIPE 2
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and cover 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, beat together almond butter, eggs, molasses and fresh ginger with an electric mixer until smooth.
In a medium sized bowl, mix together sweetener, coconut flour, baking soda, gingerbread spice and salt.
Slowly beat the dry ingredients into the wet. Drop rounded teaspoons of dough onto the prepared cookie sheets, 2 inches apart. You should have enough dough to fill 3 cookie sheets, so bake the first 2 cookie sheets, and then reuse one of the cookie sheets for the remaining cookies. Bake cookies, until firm around the edges and starting to crack in the center, 8-9 minutes. The cookies will looked slightly puffed but will flatten and crinkle as they cool. If they havenít flattened in the oven, then use the bottom of a glass to gently press them down. Cool 2 minutes on the cookie sheets and then transfer the parchment paper with the cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
