Double Chocolate-Ginger Cookies

Double Chocolate-Ginger Cookies - Quirky Cooking
For those of you who like chocolate and ginger together, here’s a double whammy of both! These are great with a glass of cold almond milk… and if there’s any left, you could always wrap some up in cellophane with a pretty ribbon, and give them to your neighbours for Christmas

(They’ll love you forever!)

If you use Rapadura in these, they need either an egg, or an extra 20g of rice-malt syrup. If you use rice-malt syrup, the egg can be omitted. I like it best with the Rapadura and egg.

    Ugh – sorry about that. I had a different comment written in and then my password generator erased it and inserted a comment I had made previously! (Still learning!) Anyhow – as I was saying – these cookies look amazing! I think the baby ‘needs’ them! Could you whip up a batch and bring them over. Hee-hee.

    Ha ha – don’t worry Julie, I do those kind of things too! Are you craving chocolate? ‘Cravings’ are such a good excuse for eating whatever you like, hey! :p

    Hi Jo, massive fan of your amazing cooking and ideas! Just wanting to know if there is a gluten free version of this? Should I try a gluten free flour mix or can you suggest a thermomix blend of rice/buckwheat or whatever? Cheers Maree

    Oh my goodness! I have just finished making these biscuits and they are absolutely delicious. The flavour is very strong so some kids may not enjoy them but for me they are practically perfect. Thanks for sharing.
