honey gingersnaps!

i am running down to pretty much the last drop of EVERYTHING in my kitchen. i have no butter, no milk, no brown sugar. it’s so cold outside, i don’t want to make a run to the store. my fiance and i got pizza take out but afterward, i was craving some sweets! knowing that i didn’t really have anything to bake with, i whipped together this little recipe for honey gingersnaps using honey in place of brown sugar and coconut oil for butter. if you don’t keep coconut oil in your house, you can substitute measurement for measurement for butter, although, i’d recommend buying some coconut oil, it does so many things!!! it is good in coffee, gets rid of dandruff, makes a good nighttime moisturizer, the list goes on and on. in my case, having coconut oil allowed me the pleasure of baking on this cold evening.  the cookies turned out sort of chewy, sort of crunchy and i personally, enjoyed them with nutella and a cup of coffee.
