Coconom Ginger Cookies Plus a Coconom Giveaway!!!!!!

Woooohoooo its Monday which means I am off to Ireland for my bridesmaid duties very early tomorrow morning and I can't wait. I am so excited obviously for my sisters wedding and to just see my sister and mum : )

I will be lying low for the next week and staying away from my computer, I'm actually not taking it with me if i did it would be too tempting! I will be on Instagram and twitter though if you would like to keep updated to whats going on. 

Right now lets get on with this post and a present for one of you.........


If you read this post then you already know I am working with Coconom at the moment which is very exciting, its great to be behind such a fabulous product! If you haven't used coconut sugar yet you need to get on the band wagon its delicious in coffee, on porridge and used in baking especially ours and I'm not just saying that because I am working with it I say it because ours comes in 3 flavours Original, Ginger and Turmeric and Tamarind, so the taste is even better! 


I have been trying out the sugar obviously in coffee but also with baking and it works incredibly well, I thought I would share a recipe with you so you can try it for yourself. I made the most amazing ginger cookies using the ginger coconut sugar, I took some ideas from this recipe but made it my own:

Coconom Ginger Cookies

You Need:

1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup ground linseeds
2 Tbsp arrow root powder
2Tbsp ground ginger
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
3 Tbsp coconut oil
2 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp vanilla bean paste
Coconom Ginger coconut sugar for coating
Small bowl of water


To Make:

Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
In a smaller bowl mix wet ingredients together.
Add wet to dry and mix into a dough. 
Put ginger coconut sugar in a small bowl.
Take a Tbsp of dough and roll into a ball dip quickly into the bowl of water then roll in the ginger coconut sugar.
Once lightly coated lay cookies on a parchment lined baking tray and flatten with the palm of your hand. 
Bake in oven on a medium heat for 8-12 minutes.
Cool and serve slightly warm.


These cookies turned out perfectly! They had a crispy ginger coating with a soft centre and were a joy to eat! I would say your a fool not try these! 


I also made a chocolatey version with the Turmeric and Tamarind coconut sugar you can find the recipe here

  1. The ginger coconut sugar sounds especially delicious. I love using coconut sugar in baking, and always use it if I am cooking some fruit as it caramelises really well. I am not sure if I have ever had tamarind so not sure what I would do with that, but I would love to try it!
