They say practice makes perfect, and boy oh boy I am learning this is true. I’ve mentioned before I am absolutely rubbish when it comes to baking cookies, but slowly, I am nailing it. Slowly…..
This recipe is about as basic as cookies can get. They’re also gluten free, egg free and refined sugar free too, which is a huge bonus.
Tip: If you’re not a fan of ginger (I know some people hate it) then toss it aside and throw in some chocolate chips, or even some dried cranberries.
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 large tablespoons of cacao (i’ve used one by Natava Superfoods)
1 1/2 cups of all purpose gluten free flour
1 large tsp of crushed or freshly grated ginger
100 grams of softened butter
1/2 cup of coconut sugar
1 tsp of baking soda
Preheat your oven to 180 c.
Combine your dry ingredients into a large bowl. Add the softened butter and ginger. With your hands, combine the butter and the dry ingredients until you can form a ball of dough.
Form your dough into 12 small balls and place on a large grease proofed baking tray (I use butter, I hate baking paper) press down with a fork.
Bake at 180c for approx 15 minutes or until golden brown.
