Chewy ginger cookies

The original recipe serves 40 cookies, however I decided to make mine bigger and made 30 cookies instead. I’ve updated the nutrition for 1 larger cookie serving.

Who doesn’t love a cookie with a cup of coffee? These are excellent with a deep spicy flavour and chewy. They won’t last long that’s for sure. They are easy to make but I found the mix a little too damp to roll into balls so I used a medium-sized icecream scoop. I do like quicker approaches. Next time (and there will be a next time), I am going to weigh the ingredients as I’m not keen on using measuring cups…there is too much margin for error.

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 2 tbsp gelatin
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened (I used lactose-free butter)
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1 cup granulated sweetener (I used erythritol)
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 tsp Yacon syrup, optional (I used this)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 163C/ 143C fan-assisted/ 325 F.
  • Line a baking tray with grease-proof paper or a silicone liner.
  • In a bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: almond flour, gelatin, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, and cloves. 
  • Next, in another bowl combine, butter, almond butter, and sweetener until smooth.
  • Add the eggs, Yacon syrup, and vanilla extract to the butter mixture, beat until well combined. 
  • Next, add the dry ingredients to the bowl, mix until well combined and a dough forms.
  • Roll the dough into 1 inch balls, and place a few inches apart on the prepared baking tray. 
  • Bake 5 minutes, then remove from the oven and gently press down a bit (to encourage them to spread).
  • Return the cookies to the oven and bake another 7 minutes, or until just barely golden brown.
  • They cookies will still be very soft. Remove from the oven, and allow them to cool completely.
  • Once cooled, serve & enjoy!!
