These four ingredient ginger biscuits started life, I guess like most of my recipes, as an experiment. I really wanted an easy biscuit recipe that was not only naturally gluten-free but also only contained a few ingredients. I love ginger and in New Zealand we have Gingernut biscuits (I know – not the most PC name), which are like ginger snaps. They are a Kiwi favourite, but their ingredients list includes wheat, dairy, sugar, and flavour (it’s not stated what kind), which is fine for an ‘every so often’ treat (if you can eat wheat and dairy), but I wanted to try to make my own gluten-free version.

Gluten-free biscuits that you can buy in the supermarket often contain more added ingredients than their wheat / gluten containing counterparts. Long ingredient lists really put me off buying food and there aren’t many affordable gluten-free brands that keep their ingredients lists simple. These four ingredient ginger biscuits only contain almonds, ginger, blackstrap molasses and honey – that’s it! Ginger me timbers they arrr’ good.

While these four ingredient ginger biscuits are super easy to make they are also on the healthier side when it comes to biscuits. They contain blackstrap molasses, which is a byproduct of cane sugar’s refining process. It is a thick sticky substance that unlike its refined sugar sister contains vitamins and minerals including calcium and iron. One tablespoon (depending on your brand of course) will give you around 125mg calcium, 2mg iron, 25mg magnesium, and 300mg potassium.

Let’s get to business. All you have to do is mix the ingredients together and roll the mix into small balls, STOP here if you want to keep them as a raw treat and store them in the fridge. Or you can push them down on a lined baking tray and bake them into a delicious crunchy biscuit / cookie.

Mix up the ginger ratio according to your tastes – since you can eat the raw mix you can easily try it and add more ginger if you like. If you want a more decadent biscuit try dipping the bottom side into melted dark chocolate and placing them on baking paper until set (see instructions below).

Ingredients
Optional: Choc dip
Servings: small biscuits
Instructions
  1. Line baking tray with baking paper. Preheat oven 170C (160C fan, 338 F)
  2. Combine ground almonds / almond meal and ground ginger in mixing bowl.
  3. In a small saucepan or in microwave (inside a mug works well) gently melt honey and blackstrap molasses until just melted. (10 seconds in microwave should be long enough)
  4. Pour melted honey and blackstrap molasses into almond and ginger mix and stir with a spoon until thoroughly combined. It will form a soft slightly sticky dough.
  5. Using hands grab about a Tbsp of mixture and roll mix into small balls, place on lined baking tray. Continue until all mixture has been used.
  6. Stop here if you want a raw treat. Place in fridge to set then store in a container.
  7. For baking: use the back of a fork and push balls down a couple of times until they are about 8mm-1cm thick (about 1/3 inch). Wipe fork if it starts to stick or simply use hands to flatten down.
  8. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden around edges. Biscuits will harden as they cool. Cool on rack until hardened. Store in airtight container in a cool place. Enjoy!
  9. Choc dip option: In a small bowl melt 100g of dark chocolate (or your vegan / dairy free substitute) over a hot water bath or melt in microwave (about 1 min stir every 30 seconds). Once your biscuits have cooled and hardened, dip the bottom side into the melted chocolate and place chocolate side up onto baking paper. Place in a cool place to set. Store in an airtight container in a cool place.
