We are suckers for sweet stuff. Especially cookies. We are a big fan of Foxs Dark Chocolate Chunkies . We were pretty excited when we realised these were vegan, even though they’re not the healthiest of snacks.
Nevertheless, nothing beats a homemade cookie when you can tailor the flavours perfectly to suit you. Like when I put in 2 Tablespoons of ginger for these bad boys and made Dillon’s sensitive eyes all watery. Hehe, what a terrible girlfriend I am.
These Ginger & Date cookies are my go-to. The flavours just taste so good together and you can easily mixing in different spices like cinnamon, or indian spices for something different.
These guys work just fine with GF flour, I used Doves Farm Plain GF flour, its the flour mix I always use for baking and cooking. A lot of the time gluten free and vegan baking can be difficult, but a bit of experimenting works the trick. I cut out the middle man and did that bit for you. So pop a little Xanthan Gum into the mix too and there is your binder.
The mix of flour, oats and coconut give these cookies a lovely texture, plus that means they’re not filled with refined wheat flours! Same goes for the unrefined sugars in these cookies. Yes, they are definitely an indulgent sweet snack, but they’re a healthier, free-from alternative.
Get scooping and squishing these ginger and date balls of cookie dough goodness. Try them out and tell us what you thought!
