Cookies! Cookies! Cookies! I love cookies!!! I’ve been on a ginger kick lately… I cook with fresh ginger all the time, I’ve been drinking a hot ginger tea I found at Whole Foods, and this is now my second ginger cookie recipe I’ve concocted. This recipe does take a little bit of time, but it’s totally worth it. These cookies are perfection in my opinion. Soft and chewy, almost melts in your mouth!
Ginger has a lot of wonderful health benefits, so for me it only seems right to add it to a cookie! I haven’t tried this yet, BUT I don’t see why you couldn’t take the base of this recipe and create whatever flavor cookie you like. I think the next time I’m in a cookie mood I’m going to add some chocolate to this recipe…maybe take out the spices?? Who knows?! I think the sky is the limit on what flavors you could go with!
May the Cookie be with you! 🙂
Yields: 22 cookies (depending on how big you make yours)
- 2 2/3 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup organic cane sugar or coconut sugar
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1-2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1-2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
- 1 egg
- 6 tbsp butter, softened
- 3 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp water
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a sheet pan with parchment or a silpat and set aside.
- In a small bowl mix together all of the dry ingredients (almond flour, cane sugar, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt). Set aside.
- Using a standing or handheld mixer, beat the egg, butter, honey, and water together using the whisk attachment. This mixture will be runny looking. Fear not! It will come together in the end. 🙂
- Use a spatula to mix the dry ingredients into the wet. I did this in two portions. Cover the bowl and freeze the dough for one hour.
- Use a small ice cream scoop and roll dough into balls. Place 2 inches apart on the sheet pan.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Once the cookies are done, let them cool on the sheet pan for 3-4 minutes before putting them on a cooling rack.
- Pour yourself a cup of coffee and EAT these babies up! You won’t be able to eat just one!
