Healthy Ginger Cookies use fresh ginger. They are easy and will be loved by all ginger lovers.
2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour (not bleached or enriched)
1 tsp. baking powder (aluminum free)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup of dark molasses
1/2 cup canola oil
5 tbsp. fresh ginger, grated and packed
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Peel the skin off the ginger then use a food processor to break the ginger down into a very fine moist meal (grated texture).
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In a small bowl, mix the maple syrup, molasses, oil, and ginger.
Stir into dry ingredients until "just mixed."
Scoop spoon-sized portions onto a lightly oiled cookie sheet (air pan) and bake for 12-15 minutes.
Makes 18 large or 36 (or more) small cookies.
