Attention all ginger lovers, I’ve got a healthy cookie just for you!

I created these triple ginger cookies by accident one day whilst fiddling around in the kitchen trying to make myself a healthy ‘treat’. The sweet tooth had hit me at the time, but more than that I think I was really just hungry for a snack. The super cool thing about these cookies is that they are low in added sugar (in the form of honey) and full of good healthy fat. These triple ginger cookies make a healthy snack for those with blood sugar issues and adrenal issues alike.

I consider these cookies a special ‘mom snack‘.

What’s a ‘mom snack’ you ask?

Well, it’s a snack that none of the kids like that you get to enjoy all to yourself. No fighting off those dirty little paws! Nope, this one’s just for you momma! I knew none of my kids would like these cookies when I created them <evil snicker>. I’m no dummy! I hope some other mommas out there enjoy these cookies all to themselves as well.

You can buy candied ginger or make your own if you want to avoid any sugar and use honey instead. I get my candied ginger from Trader Joe’s, as it’s not crystallized and way less sugar than the crystallized ginger.

IMPORTANT note about “coconut cream concentrate” and “coconut butter”, since I get asked this all the time.

Whenever I refer to those two terms in my recipes, it means the product that is super finely ground coconut meat, which has a consistency similar to a nut butter. It’s not referring to coconut milk or coconut cream (the liquid beverage-type products), and it’s not referring to those vegan “butters” that often use coconut oil in them.

You cannot substitute dairy butter for coconut butter, nor can you substitute coconut oil for coconut butter.

Please read this post where I discuss all the differences between coconut products in an effort to clear up the confusion that is circulating around the Web.

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 24
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Soften 1½ cups of coconut butter by placing the jar into a pan of simmering water.
  3. In a mixing bowl, stir together all ingredients. Taste as you go to find the amount of ginger you like. I like ginger a LOT, so I used the higher amounts listed. If you don't want a potent ginger flavor start with the lesser amount and taste it first. The cookies get more gingery once they are baked and set.
  4. Let the mixture firm up a bit once it's all mixed together. 10 minutes in the fridge is helpful.
  5. Form the dough into 1 inch balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  6. Press the balls down lightly.
  7. Bake at 350 10-12 minutes.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool fully before transferring -as they will be very soft.
  9. I often put the whole cookie sheet in the freezer (for about 10 minutes) after it has been out of the oven enough to cool a bit.
  10. Store these cookies in the fridge and allow to sit at room temp. for a few minutes before eating.
  11. This recipe makes 24-30 cookies.

  1. Mmmm these sound delightful! I’m a ginger addict, I need some daily or I start withdrawals. I keep a pack of Trader Joe’s gingermints in my purse just in case! 🙂

  4. I am really excited to try this recipe. But, ingredient list calls for 1.5 cup coconut concentrate and the recipe begins with using 2 cups. Can you tell me what the correct amount should be? Thanks

    • Hi Christine – We JUST caught that error. It should be 2 cups. I have updated the recipe to reflect that. 🙂

  6. I hope everyone likes these! They are my new go-to snack! 😉

    Hey Jessica, I just realized I made an error the ingredients says 1 1/2 cups of coconut butter and the instructions call for 2 cups – it should read 1 1/2 cups. My apologies!

    Thanks for sharing my recipe!

      • Oh fun, I hope you like them!

        The edit should be to say 1 1/2 cups not 2 cups 😉

        (I actually have done it with the 2 cups but like it a bit better with less coconut butter)

  7. These are the cookies I’ve been looking for! Gluten-free triple ginger!! I had given up on finding a recipe and was working on tweaking existing ones for regular flour. Turned out pretty well, but now I have a new recipe to try. Thanks very much! I make medicinal cookies (with canna-butter) for a friend with cancer, and ginger hides the taste quite well, and is also anti-inflammatory and healing in its own right. Thank you so much!

    • I hope you enjoy Jeanmarie! They are AWESOME and I love that you are helping a friend with the canna-butter! I am a strong advocate of medicinal cannabis. I hope you both enjoy and best wishes to your friend. 🙂

  8. Hi!
    These look great, but I can’t have eggs. Do you know if you could substitute gelatin for the eggs, and if so, what the amount would be plus liquid?

    reply

    Posted 08/23/14

    • Jan – I’ve never tried the gelatin eggs in this specific recipe, but from my experience, the gelatin eggs work well in recipes requiring 1-3 eggs, so I think it should work fine for these too. Please let me know how they turn out if you try it! 🙂

  9. Also interested to know if gelatin eggs (or chia / flax seed eggs) would work in this recipe.

  10. Heya
    I’ve never heard of Coconut Concentrate/Manna (A year ago, in Western Australia, you couldn’t get Coconut oil in every supermarket, let alone in a jar bigger than 600g). Would it work with regular (dairy) butter?
    Thank you

    P thinking of using cocoa, instead of vanilla 🙂

  11. I tried the cookies per recipe and when I baked them they melted together, coconut oil separated out. A mess. I thought about it and decided it needed flour, coconut flour. Did the flour get left out of the recipe? I added flour a least a cup and it was better but the cookies were really crumbly.

    • Naomi – This recipe does not use any flour. It uses coconut butter for the base. Coconut butter is dried coconut meat that has been ground very finely. It is similar to nut butters in texture and it makes an excellent base for grain-free baked good. Is that the ingredient you used? It sounds like you maybe used something else and that is why the cookies did not hold together. Let me know!

      • You are right, I used coconut oil. I was told by Sprouts and Trader Joe’s that they were the same. Somewhere on the net I thought it said they were the same. When I look now I see the difference. Thank you for the reply.
        I will have to try again.

  12. Why is it that I can’t copy and paste from your website?

    reply 

    Laura
    Posted 11/28/14

    • Hi Laura – I have the copy and paste feature turned off on my site because of the amount of content theft I deal with on a regular basis. There are many, many sites out there that steal content off of other people’s sites and use it as their own on their sites. That is illegal as copyright laws protect websites and bloggers, just like any other medium. Turning off the copy feature is one way that I protect my copyrighted work from theft. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I’m sure you can understand! 🙂
