These crunchy cookies are hard to keep in the cookie jar because they’re a family favorite at HealthBarn, and they’re sure to be a hit in your house, too. If ginger is not your favorite flavor, go without and enjoy a molasses snap instead. Pack them with low-fat milk or milk alternatives such as soy, rice or almond milks for a yummy school snack—and be prepared to share the recipe when the other parents ask for it!
