Hear Ye Hear Ye…… I have a delicious and simple cookie recipe for you and some SUPER exciting news!!

This cookie uses half the sugar of other recipes, it is low carb and dairy free!!  That is exciting but not my SUPER exciting news…keep reading!

Don’t fret reading all the things missing in this cookie because, let me tell you, it is sweet and so flavorful that you will be salivating before you get it to your mouth!

Even the paper bag I had them in smelled so amazing; I put the bag up to my face and breathed in like it was my last breath.  I am so glad it wasn’t because I had a cookie crumb left to eat in that bag!

These Ginger Cookies are soft and chewy in the center and the edges are crispy. Everyone raved about them….even a particular palate that doesn’t normally like the gingerbread cookie flavors {gasp I can’t imagine}!


So here is my SUPER exciting news: This is going to be my “Cookie of the Month” to launch my fund raising for No Kid Hungry! I have committed to raising $1000 through sharing Spoonful of Health’s tasty and healthy treats!

Many of you have asked if I could open up a bakery and this is the closest I could come up with for now; not to mention, a cause that pulls at my heart.

On Wednesdays through December, I will have fresh baked Chewy Ginger Spice Cookies for sale at the Natural Medicine Clinic in hopes to help end hunger in America among children.

Did you know 1 in 5 children struggles with hunger in America? No Kid Hungry connects kids in need with nutritious food and teaches their families how to cook healthy and affordable meals {now that makes me so happy}!

If you live near or far you can help our very own kids in America by donating HERE {it is super easy and every $ helps}.  If you have any questions you can email me at to check availability to purchase cookies!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping to feed our children thru No Kid Hungry!

    Sounds awesome!! I love that you are supporting that cause! These sound good except I don’t/can’t eat quinoa. Any substitutions? Shredded coconut?

      Hi Kristen! Thank you and yes I like that substitution would work great! I love using shredded coconut in my cookies it will add to the chewiness and add sweetness. I think for next weeks batch I will try that too!!

    Thank you for this amazing recipe! I used half the amount of Palm sugar and they were still very sweet tasting! I used millet flour in its place.
    PS- I groun up my favorite gloves and they do add an interesting texture! ( just kidding! I knew you meant cloves!)

      Raffelle you crack me up and I am sure glad you didn’t ground up your gloves!! Thank you for catching that for me…I corrected it asap! I am so happy you like this recipe and the fact that you used half the amount of sugar is even better!!! We all love a man that can cook but one that can substitute and make the recipe his own is the coolest in my book!!
