VEGAN GINGER COOKIES

 

Ive got a little bit of an obsession with ginger at the moment, I regularly ramble on about ts benefits to my friends and to anyone else who will allow me. Ginger is among the healthiest spices on the planet and has a long history of use in traditional/alternative medicine.It is loaded with nutrients and bioactive compounds that have powerful benefits for your body and brain. Ginger is known to improve digestion, help fight colds, flu, improve brain function, lower cholesterol, may help to prevent cancer and fight many other everyday infections.

 

For the past year Ive been drinking fresh ginger tea nearly everyday and I have gotten ill once this past year (touch wood). I thought that some ginger cookies would be a nice addition to the tea . Below is a super easy and simple vegan recipe for cookies with fresh ginger in them

 

SERVING: 15 cookies

TIME: 20 - 30 minutes

 

 

 INGREDIENTS:

 

- 1 cup of sugar 

- 2 cups of flour

- 1 teaspoon baking soda

- 2 and a half tablespoons of freshly grated ginger

- quarter teaspoon salt

- half teaspoon ground cinnamon

- half cup of canola oil (can also substitute for rapeseed, coconut, olive)

- quarter cup soy milk

 

 

METHOD:

 

1) combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon into a bowl and mix and set aside

 

2) add the sugar, milk, oil into another bowl and mix well also. Once mixed add in the rest of the ingredients from step 1 and whisk all together. The mixture will remain quite wet.

 

 

 

3) Have a baking tray ready with greased paper ready for the cookies to be baked. Now the mixture is ready, make small balls (about 1 teaspoon in size), and add to the tray. You can use a spoon to gently flatten the cookies out and as an optional extra you can sprinkle each cookie with sugar.  My batch made around 15 , but yours may be a little more or less

 

 

 

4) Place on the top shelf of your oven at 180 Celsius and bake for around 10 minutes, check cookies golden slightly but do not burn. adjust cooking time accordingly to your preference and you are all done. Either eat straight away or store in an airtight jar to keep fresh
