The simplest cookie recipe on the internet, chewy with the warming spice of the ginger. These are seriously delicious and very simple to make.
  • 200g / 7.05 oz Nut Butter (I used cashew nut butter in this recipe)
  • 2-3 tsp Ground ginger (depending on how strong you like it)
  • 1 egg (Medium)
  • 100g / 3.5oz Coconut Sugar
  • Pinch of sea salt (optional)
  1. Pre-heat oven to 200°C / 392°F
  2. Have a cookie baking sheet ready with greaseproof paper on it
  3. In to a blender place the coconut sugar, ginger (& optional sea salt) and blend until fully combined
  4. Add in nut butter and blend until fully combined (it will be clumping together)
  5. 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)
  6. 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)
  7. Place in oven for 12-14 mins until golden brown
  8. 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)
  9. Keep in an air tight container for up to one week
Feel free to substitute the ginger powder for anything else....cacao, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, pumpkin spice, apple spice etc. You could even add something in to it like raisins, cranberries, orange zest etc- just be careful to have the baking tray in the middle of the oven if you do this so that the tops do not burn.
