Ginger Snap Cookies to Relieve Nausea

Ginger is so great for reducing nausea.  I found this recipe and thought these cookies would be a wonderful way to keep nausea at bay while traveling…just snack on them as needed.

  • 2 1/2 cups of flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 8 Tbsp margarine, softened at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar (plus some extra to roll cookie dough in)
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 2 egg whites

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Sift and combine  flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and salt in small mixing bowl.  Set aside.

Blend margarine in large mixing bowl.  Stir in sugar and brown sugar.  Add molasses and then egg whites.  Slowly add dry mixture to wet mixture.

Roll dough into ¾ inch balls.  Roll cookie balls in sugar to lightly coat each cookie.  Place balls on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake in oven for 8-10 minutes or until cookies are golden brown.
