4 Ingredient Ginger Nut Cookies


THESE COOKIES CONTAIN JUST 4 INGREDIENTS! Forget shop bought ginger nut biscuits which are full of grains, refined sugar, dairy and other nasties, these my friends are going to be the nicest cookies you have made all year. Not only is ginger great for aiding digestion, reducing nausea and helping fight off flu and the common cold, it is also the perfect addition to these cookies and gives them a delicious spicy warmth.

  • 200 g Nut Butter (I used cashew nut butter in this recipe)

Step 1

Pre-heat oven to 200°C / 392°F
Have a cookie baking sheet ready with greaseproof paper on it
In to a blender place the coconut sugar, ginger (& optional sea salt) and blend until fully combined
Add in nut butter and blend until fully combined (it will be clumping together)
Now add egg and allow to blend until it has all come together in to a cookie ball (if it doesnt, don't worry, just stop once it's all combined)
Taking ping pong sized balls roll together in your hands and then place on baking sheet, press down in to desired cookie shape, keep them about 1 inch apart from each other as they will expand (The thinner you make them the crispier they are so I like to make mine about 6 mm thick so that they remain chewy)
Place in oven for 12-14 mins until golden brown
Remove and LEAVE to cool for about 20-25 minutes to firm up or until you can pick one up easily (you mustn't try to move them off the sheet when they first come out as they need to solidify)
Keep in an air tight container for up to one week
