Gingerbread Cookies With Orange

5 from 2 votes

Hello Everyone! I had some amazing cookies at a cafe in Huaz Khaas Village the other day Immediately after coming back Home I decided to bake some of them as I could not wait to taste them again.
I went to my kitchen and started collecting the ingredients from my refrigerator and kitchen store. I thought of making these using my secret ingredient Blackstrap Molasses. While I was thinking how to give those ginger cookies my own twist & taste.
I found an orange in my refrigerator and there I was. This would be my twist to the traditional Gingerbread Cookies.
So I started the process of making My own Gingerbread Cookies with Orange. They are a bit soft, moist & gives a kick of orange with fresh orange juice and orange zest. Brown sugar gives it a beautiful sugary crunch and wheat bran makes it a bit chewy.
My version is on a healthier side with wheat bran instead of baking flour & white sugar replaced with Blackstrap Molasses.
When I present them in front of my friends on Sunday brunch everyone enjoyed them with coffee and then they talked about the texture and ingredient in length too. O my god what a feeling, getting those compliments from my friends.
What a wonderful time I had! I am sure when you make them you and your friends will also enjoy them as much as my friends did. So do try these in your Kitchen too.

  • 1/4 tablespoon Salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon ground
  • 1/2 cup canola oil Or butter, melted

  • In another bowl, blend together oil, sugar, and egg until smooth. Stir in molasses.
  • Now fold in flour gradually, add orange juice and orange zest.
  • Mix until completely combined. Cover and chill dough in refrigerator for 1-2 hour. I kept it overnight.
  • Now preheat oven to 200 degrees. Roll dough into walnut sized balls (use cookie scoop, if available); roll each ball in remaining sugar.
  • Place the balls on parchment lined baking sheets or simply on a baking tray.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes just until tops are brown and cookies are a bit gooey inside the center. Cool on wire racks for sometime.
  • Your Gingerbread Cookies with Orange are ready to be served. I gave them some flowery shape just to share the pictures with you 🙂
