Triple Chewy Ginger Cookies

The house construction is about to end and I can’t I really wait  so that we can get back to normal. No more dust cleaning, which its making me crazy. Everything is pretty much covered in dust, YUCK…

Anyhow, I am really pleased to post these cookies. I got the recipe from the chewy ginger and molasses cookies I made last month. We loved them so much that I figured I could just make them ginger flavor since we happen to like ginger cookies a lot as well :-)

I think next time I make them I will decrease the sugar by 1/4 cup and see how they go. On any event, I hope you get to make these ones because not only they are easy to make but really stupendous to eat!

Triple Chewy Ginger Cookies

Yield: 16-18 cookies


1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup oat flour, you can use 2 cups whole wheat if you don't have oat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon ginger powder
1 tablespoon grated ginger
1/4 cup crystallized ginger, finely chopped, optional
3/4 cup unrefined sugar, next time I will do just 1/2 cup
1/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup molasses
1 egg, at room temperature



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper.

In a bowl beat the brown sugar, oil, egg and molasses until combined. Add flour, baking soda,  ginger powder and grated ginger. Combine the mixture with a rubber spatula.

Scoop the dough with 2 spoons onto the baking sheets making sure to leave some room as they will expand during baking. Flatten them lightly with your fingers.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the sheets for 2-3 minutes and transfer them to wire racks to cool.

Note: If you use the 2 cups of whole wheat pastry flour in place of the oat flour you will have to roll out the dough between plastic wrap to 1/4 inch thickness. You will also have to add and extra 2 Tbsp of olive oil to the batter.
