I cannot believe that Christmas Day is this Friday. I’m so gutted that I’m not at home for all of the festivities. I could barely watch all of the Snapchat stories from last night. There really is no place like home at this time of year.
I was racking my brain for some Christmas themed recipes during the week. Obviously gingerbread men was one of the first to spring to mind, but I didn’t have the mould for it to make the right shape. I decided cookies would have to do, because I have a huge bag of ground ginger that needs to be used up!
I genuinely could not have been happier with how these turned out. This batch lasted about 10 minutes after I made them – best sign ever! So I can officially and whole-heartedly guarantee that these are a winner!
- 1 cup of coconut flour
- 3 1/2 tbsp of coconut sugar
- 4 tbsp of honey
- 4 1/2 tbsp of almond butter
- 5 1/2 tbsp of coconut oil
- 5 teaspoons of ground ginger
- Preheat the oven to 180 Celsius or 350 Fahrenheit.
- Melt the coconut oil, honey and coconut sugar over a low heat (do not boil!) until combined. You will notice a separation between the oil and the other ingredients but that's fine!
- Add in the almond butter and mix it all up.
- Add in the coconut flour and ginger and mix until smooth.
- Try and refrain from eating the mixture as it is - it's amazing!
- Using your hands, roll into balls and place on a greaseproof paper lined baking tray.
- Flatten the balls down into cookie shapes.
- Bake for 15 mins.
- Allow to cool, or enjoy them warm!
These are chewy and tasty and everything you would want from a cookie! To be perfectly honest, I was so surprised at how well these turned out!
A few weeks ago a lady got in touch with a question about using my Coconut & Lime Truffles as a stocking filler, and I was wondering how I hadn’t thought of that idea! I think that these Ginger Bread Cookies would also be a perfect little option to wrap up and surprise someone with on Christmas morning, especially if you’re a bit last minute with gifts!
I hope everyone enjoys the run up to Christmas, it’s the best time of year and I am so sad I can’t celebrate it with family and friends, but New York is easing my pain! 🙂
