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

 

Ingredients:

  • 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

 

Method:

  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.

 

Notes:

  • These cookies can be enjoyed by kids as well as senior citizens.
  • Ginger and cinnamon spice mix adds antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • These are perfect spices for keeping us warm through the winter season too.
  • Almond flour is nut flour, which is free from gluten and consists of ground and blanched almonds. It is rich in vitamin E, a key vitamin for skin and eye health.
  • These cookies are also great for nausea or morning sickness.
  • Explore baking with kids by getting them involved in it. It is the best way for kids to learn nutrition.
  • Let them shape and cut the cookies as per their desire.
  • Dates add iron to the cookies. Make sure you soak them in hot water, if they are hard.
  • Enjoy, relish, and let the goodness of the cookies rich in nutrients sink in this festive season.

Why Choose You Care Wellness?
Because we help you find a way
- Luke Coutinho

Our You Care wellness programs are designed around the five fundamental intelligent systems within the human body involved in prevention, recovery, and rebuilding. Every program and protocol after a thorough diagnosis and prognosis is built around - Angiogenesis, DNA repair, Immunity and Inflammation, the Gut Microbiome, and Stem Cell Regeneration. Our approach involves using food synergy and deep cellular nutrition, exercise, sleep, and enhancing emotional wellness and lifestyle.

Our You Care wellness program respects the uniqueness of a person and works with an understanding that no one shoe fits all. Every program and journey is personalized according to the person's past and present lifestyle, ailment/disease, symptoms, and root causes. In integrative and lifestyle medicine, we focus on addressing the root cause of the problem and work to manage the side effects of medications and treatments that may cause secondary problems, issues, and discomfort. While symptoms are being treated, root causes must be addressed, and rebuilding with a focus on future prevention is important. On this journey with us, you have a team of highly trained nutritionists, clinical dietitians, allopathic doctors, yoga therapists, life coaches, and certified emotional counselors that will be assigned to your case according to your condition, if required.

Every disease requires this approach, from a simple case of acne to a rare syndrome, cancer. We help you find a way.

Our programs in no way guarantee you a cure or miraculous healing. We will never sell you anything in that light. We believe in a structured approach, knowledge, research, wisdom, and years of experience coming together to assess you and your condition as a unique one and plan your protocol along those lines.

We are not a replacement for your medical team and will never suggest otherwise unless we feel that your current medical approach is ineffective and dangerous to you.

We put care, love, respect, and understanding in our approach and design healthcare around the person first and then the disease. It is our commitment to simplifying health and lifestyle. We want to make wellness more enjoyable and wonderful, instead of horrible.

We commit our best to everyone who comes to us and while we can't always promise the result, we always promise to be there for you and give it our all to you, your family, loved ones. Our only hope is for you to get better and live a happier and healthier life.

A cure is not possible for many illnesses, but we firmly believe that there is always room for healing. Healing can be experienced as acceptance of illness and peace with one's life. This healing, we believe, is at its core - spiritual. Healing can comprise acceptance, letting go, the forgiveness of oneself or others, seeing with a different perspective, hope, faith, belief, prayer, and so much more. Healing is never someone making a promise to you that you will get better by selling you a special medicine, supplement, chant, prayer, magic stones, magic oils, and so on. Healing and recovery are different. In our experience, we see dying patients who start to heal, and sometimes as they heal the past and present, their condition can improve, sometimes, nothing happens, but the patient gets emotionally happier and stronger as they heal at all levels even if the disease cannot be cured.
