Spiced Ginger Cookies

These Spiced Ginger Cookies are one of the most popular healthy cookies that I bring to Pram Power morning teas! All you need is a few ingredients blitzed in the food processor, then roll into balls and bake! I use a combination of brown rice flour and almond meal, but you could use all of either one if you want to keep them nut-free.

Makes 12-15 cookies

  • 2 1/2 cups Almond Meal (I use 1 1/2 cups almond meal and 1 cup brown rice flour)
  • 210gms or 1 1/4 cups of pitted dates
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 ground cloves


Preheat your oven to 175. Pulse 1 1/2 cups of the almond meal a few times in the food processor. Then pulse the dates separately - you don't want a paste so be careful not to over-process. Combine them and put back into the food processor with the rest of the almond meal (or brown rice flour) and remaining ingredients. Pulse until a ball is formed.

Roll into walnut-sized balls and place on the baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until just starting to brown.
