Inspired by the best cookies in Alaska from the Talkeetna Roadhouse, these Gluten Free Ginger Molasses Cookies are a chewy, gluten-free treat your whole family will love!
One of my fave things to do following a trip is to come home and recreate memorable foods I ate along the way. I recall a trip to San Diego in 2013 that involved a Panzanella I’ll never forget. I immediately returned home and recreated that dish.
And that’s definitely how these Ginger-Molasses Cookies ended up on my plate.
They’re a gluten free recreation of one of THE best cookies I’ve ever eaten. Full of rich molasses flavor, I grabbed one of the chewy cookies as I was walking out the door from breakfast at the Talkeetna Road House.
The original version was of course, not gluten free. But in recreating them in my kitchen I wanted gluten-free ginger molasses cookies the whole family could enjoy.
While they’ll remind you of gingersnap cookies in terms of their overall flavor, the texture is more like soft cookies. As gluten-free cookies go, these are some of my favorites. They would make a great addition to your holiday cookies baking line up. But I think they’re perfect any time of year.
There’s something about revisiting dishes you enjoyed on memorable trips that seem to make the memory more vivid and last a little longer. If you ever make the journey to Talkeetna, Alaska I hope you’ll grab one of their Ginger-Molasses Cookies and see if it’s as memorable for you as it was for me.Print
