  • 1/4 Cup Butter
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp Blackstrap Molasses
  • 1/3 Cup Gluten-free baking flour
  • 2 Tbsp Tapioca Flour
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Tsp Ground Cloves
  • 1/2 Tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1 Egg large
  • 1/3 Cup Granulated Erythritol
  • 1/4 Tsp Baking Powder


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F and prepare a standard madeleine pan with non-stick spray.
  • In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Continue cooking the butter until small brown speckles start to form. Remove from heat and stir in molasses.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the egg and granulated erythritol until well combined.
  • Add in the gluten-free baking flour, tapioca flour, spices, and baking powder and stir until no dry spots remain.

  • Let cool. Dust with powdered erythritol if desired.
