GoGo squeeZ® Gingerbread Cookies Recipe


3 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp clove
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tablespoon ground ginger (less if you like them with less of a kick)
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup molasses (we used black strap molasses)
1 egg
1 pouch GoGo squeeZ appleapple applesauce
2 tsp vanilla extract


Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and ginger in a bowl.

Mix the maple syrup, molasses, egg, GoGo squeeZ® appleapple applesauce, and vanilla extract in a separate, and larger bowl.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and mix until well combined.

Wrap the dough in plastic, and refrigerate for 3+ hours.

Remove the dough from the fridge, and roll out on a floured surface until about 1/4 inch thick.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Using a gingerbread man cookie cutter (or cookie cutter of your choosing), cut the dough into shapes, and place them on the lined baking sheet.

Bake cookies for 8 minutes, then let cool. Decorate to your liking (we mixed some GoGo squeeZ YogurtZ with honey and vanilla extract to make frosting)
