Home-baked Ginger Cookies

An all-time favourite, crispy baked delicacy with a hint of love, gratitude, and happiness for this Christmas!


Who doesn’t love ginger cookies? Well made ginger cookies with the perfect zing of ginger is such a classic Christmas delicacy relished by many. As much as we love them, most store-bought commercial varieties have overly processed and refined ingredients. All you get are empty calories, with little to no nutrition.


Keeping up with the spirit of Christmas, here is a healthier version of ginger cookies that bring out the same traditional flavours but without any refined flour or sugar!


In fact, these cookies are protein-rich, full of antioxidants and fibre as well! Too good to be true for something like a cookie, right? Try it.


Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 12 to 14 cookies



  • 1½ cup coarsely ground almonds (badam)
  • 4 tbsp of sattu flour
  • 15 dates (khajur)
  • 1 banana
  • 6 to 8 tbsp of ethically sourced A2 milk, coconut milk, or almond milk (preferably homemade)
  • ½ tbsp of ground ginger (adrak)
  • 2 tsp of Srilankan cinnamon (dalchini) powder
  • 1 tsp of pure vanilla extract



  1. Preheat the oven to 180 – 250 degrees Celsius.
  2. Blend banana, dates, A2 milk or coconut milk, cinnamon powder, ground ginger, and vanilla extract.
  3. Mix until smooth, using a food processor or a blender.
  4. Add ground almond and sattu. Mix until all ingredients are well combined.
  5. Use a cookie cutter and make any desired shape or simply make tiny balls or flat circles out of it.
  6. Prepare a baking tray and grease it with a few drops of A2 ghee.
  7. Spread the cookies.
  8. Bake for about 10 – 15 minutes. The cookies will be soft and slightly golden at the bottom.
  9. Leave the cookies to cool on the baking tray.
  10. Once cooled, they will harden.
  11. Store in airtight containers.


These cookies stay fresh for 4 to 5 days.
