A healthy version of a chewy ginger cookie that will get you coming back for more … and more!

elanas-ginger-cookies-800x600

I have had this recipe in my ‘to try’ pile for ages.  And so I finally got it out and gave it a go, not really expecting anything to come from it.  I gave half of one of these to Grant to try – and you know how picky he is when it comes to ginger cookies, and he just said ‘awesome, can I please have another one?’.  So try it – it’s worth it!

Just be careful, because these cookies spread a lot while baking.  The photo above was taken after I confined the cookies in an ice-cream sandwich cookie tray – and they turned out perfectly.  Just warning you …!

These originally came from Elana’s Pantry (see website here), but I adapted it slightly, based on what ingredients I had laying around the house.  Feel free to check out her website though – I’ve just printed out a whole pile more of her recipes to put in my ‘to try’ list!
