Paleo desserts: Coconut Flour Soft Ginger Cookies

Low Carb Vanilla Ice Cream

I love finding out about the latest research on spices – and ginger is quite amazing. The more I find out about it, the more I want to include it in my Paleo desserts recipes (keto desserts), which are always sugar free desserts made with healthy sweeteners like xylitol.

And I notice a difference. Any area of my body that may be inflamed – maybe because I worked it out too hard at the gym or moved it in a weird way – will seem better when I consume ginger. In fact, often my wife will make a cup of ginger tea for me and have it waiting when I come home from work.

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, ginger has been used to help digestion for more than 2000 years. It’s been used for colic, diarrhea, and even heart conditions. Women may know that ginger can make the pain of a menstrual period a lot less and may depend on it for feeling better during that time of the month.

Pregnant women who have severe vomiting can even benefit from ginger, reports the U of Maryland doctors. The women who consumed 1gram ginger daily for four days straight had a lot more vomiting relief than those who were stuck taking the placebo. In another study, the women who took the ginger had less nausea and did not vomit at all compared to those who got the placebo.

Ginger also works for those who are on chemotherapy and have nausea and vomiting. Hmmm . . .  so ginger cookies could conceivably help quite a few different types of people. Isn’t that exciting?

Coconut Flour Soft Ginger Cookies: A Favorite Among Many Paleo Desserts

Check out our fairly popular low carb paleo dessert recipes that include these soft ginger cookies. We’ll teach you how to make them along with many other types of paleo desserts. This recipe yields about 2 dozen cookies.

Ingredients 

  • 1-1/3 cups coconut flour
  • 12 tablespoons butter (1-1/2 stick)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons cream cheese
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¾ cup erythritol
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 10 drops stevia liquid
  • 2 tablespoons beef gelatin powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

Instructions 

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Melt the butter and cream cheese in a double boiler or in your microwave. It only takes about 20 seconds in the microwave.
  3. Transfer the butter / cream cheese mixture to a large bowl.
  4. Add eggs, whipping cream, stevia liquid, vanilla extract, and lemon extract. Stir to combine.
  5. In a medium-sized bowl, mix your coconut flour, erythritol, ground ginger, gelatin, baking powder, and the sea salt.
  6. Add about ½ cup of the dry ingredients to the wet. Then mix thoroughly.
  7. Add the remaining amount of the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Your batter is shaping up nicely to look like cookie batter by now.
  8. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper.
  9. Scoop out about 1-1/2 tablespoons batter per cookie and place the batter on the baking sheet. The cookies won’t spread out so you can line them up close to each other.
  10. Bake at 350F until done, about 15 minutes.
  11. Remove cookies from oven and cool on a cooling rack.
