OAT TOFFEE GINGER COOKIES
Ginger is truly one of my favorite ingredients and one that I have in various forms on a daily basis. There is fresh ginger and ground ginger in my morning masala chai, everyday. It helps to kick start the day and the ginger really wakes me up. Ginger is in Indian dishes as well, that I usually make for dinner, or asian dishes – when I make the asian bowls.
Ginger screams warmth, fuzziness, winter and I had to come up with a cookie recipe that has a lot of ginger in it!
I came up with these oat toffee ginger cookies because one of my favorite biscuits from the UK is Fox’s Ginger Crunch cookies. They are so gingery, and have a sharp snap to them. They have a honeyish taste to them as well.
My Oat Toffee Ginger Cookies are a sweet, gingery, chewy version – with ground ginger and candied ginger, toffee bits to give it that caramely taste, and finally drizzled with chocolate to give it extra pizazz!
The ingredients for the Oat Toffee Ginger Cookies are:
- Flours : I use 2 kinds of Bob’s Red Mill Flours for this cookie. Always use the best ingredients like Bob’s Red Mill, to get the best results in a cookie!
- All purpose Flour: I use the Organic Unbleached White All Purpose Flour from Bob’s Red Mill
- Semolina Flour: I use the Bob’s Red Mill Semolina Flour, giving it a tiny amount of grit.
- Oats: I use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Rolled Oats (Not instant), to this cookie. You can use the normal Whole Oats too. I like that these gluten free oats are lighter and thinner than the whole oats.
- Granulated Sugar and Light Brown Sugar: I use 2 kinds of sugars in this cookie, both playing a part in the texture. The brown sugar gives it a molasses chewiness that makes this cookie super addictive!
- Ground Ginger: It is a ginger cookie and I add good quality ground ginger. It does not taste that gingery and it is a pleasant cookie to eat.
- Baking soda and Baking powder: You can add ¼ teaspoon more baking soda if you want the cookie to spread a bit more. I like the cookie to have a bit more height hence I added ½ teaspoon of baking soda.
- Unsalted Butter : The butter is melted anyways, so if it is not room temperature it is ok.
- Vanilla extract
- Candied Ginger: I LOVE candied ginger in baked goods, especially this time of the year!
- Toffee bits : I use Heath toffee bits which are easily available in the grocery store.
HOW EASY THIS COOKIE IS!
This cookie is really super easy. It requires
- NO STAND MIXER or
- NO HAND MIXER.
- It can be made in a bowl with a spatula
- It has a rest time of 30 minutes
- Bake time for each batch is about 14 minutes
- This cookie can easily be made in 2 hours.
The candied ginger and toffee bits in the cookie add a lovely touch to the overall cookie. These cookies are MIND YOU – HIGHLY ADDICTIVE! I made the first batch as a trial batch, and I made 2 more batches after that (with minor tweaks!). They vanished quite fast!
The chocolate drizzle on the top is totally optional, it is simply to make the cookie decorative, fun and festive. They taste just as good or better without the chocolate! I love these cookies with my morning masala chai – ginger on ginger action! 😉
TIP: The best way to eat this cookie is to warm it up in the microwave for 10 seconds. It will be absolutely perfect to have it with your tea or coffee!
IF you are still looking for a cookie to make and gift, this is one to make! They are super delicious and totally worth it – and super easy to make too!
