Ok, we realize that cookies aren’t exactly “nutritious”, but it is the holiday season after all! Unlike traditional cookies, this recipe uses canola oil, a healthy, monounsaturated fat. In addition, it’s full of spices, which carry powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. So, enjoy a few guilt-free!

1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup dark molasses
1 egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. salt
