Ingredients

“Crystalized” Ginger (make the day before):

  • 2-inch knob of ginger, peeled and small diced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup coconut palm sugar + 2 tablespoons for coating

Cookie:

  • 3/4 cup creamy unsalted almond butter
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup crystalized ginger (from attached recipe)
  • 1 small ripe banana
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 large egg
  • pinch of salt

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, place ginger, water, and 1/2 cup coconut sugar.  Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer.  Simmer uncovered for 20 minutes.  Remove from heat and let cool in pan for 10 minutes.  Put in a colander and rinse with water. Place ginger bits on a paper towel.  Transfer to a bowl and toss additional 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar crystals.  Place in a colander and shake excess sugar off.  Transfer back to your bowl and let dry uncovered overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. In a mixing bowl, blend all ingredients until well-mixed.
  4. Roll dough into small balls, about 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch diameter.  If you prefer, roll these balls in a little additional coconut palm sugar.
  5. On a parchment paper-lined cooking sheet, place the balls of cookie dough about 1-inch apart.  Using the bottom of a glass or something with a flat surface, press down on the cookie dough until the cookies are about 1/4 inch thick.
  6. Cook for 10 minutes.
  7. Let stand for at least 30 minutes so that the cookies can set.
  8. Enjoy!

    What is the purpose of boiling the ginger when making the crystalized ginger? Doesn't that remove all of the beneficials from it?
