Ginger is potentially one of my favorite foods. So spicy and versatile. (And so good for you!) Between fresh, powdered, pickled, and candied….I am a serious fanatic.
Last year, I discovered an amazing ginger cookie recipe: 101 Cookbook’s Triple Ginger Cookie. TRIPLE GINGER?! They were salty and spicy. Sweet, but with a bright hit of lemon. Simply divine. They became the cookie of 2014.
This year, I saw Dolly and Oatmeal’s Chewy Ginger Molasses cookie and knew I had to try them. They are gluten free –using oats and chickpea flour — and have a vegan option, and just looked darn delicious. But I couldn’t help but think of the few extra touches from the 101 Cookbooks recipe that I loved like lemon zest and fresh ginger. So I did a little experimenting, and low and behold — these Chewy Double Ginger Molasses Cookies combine the best of both worlds, and are a perfect afternoon snack with coffee, tea, or some coconut milk iced cream. Dreams can come true.
