Last week HUNDREDS of you emailed me your food struggles.
I read every. single. one.
The most common struggle: Emotional Eating.
So I am teaching a Stress Eating workshop. Read more about it below.
In addition to emotional eating, your 3 other common struggles:
✨baking too much
I thought about what I could offer that would help these 3 struggles. Drum roll please….
6-ingredient sweet treat w/ benefits
✅ It’s a sweet treat (but not too sweet)
✅ It’s a baking project
✅ It’s good for digestion
Makes 12 cookies
1 tablespoon grated ginger
1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1/16 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
– Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
– In a small bowl, mix ginger, coconut oil, maple syrup and salt until combined.
– In a medium bowl, stir together almond and coconut flour.
– Stir ginger mixture into the flour until it becomes a round ball of dough (knead w/ your hands if it’s too crumbly).
– Place tablespoon-size mounds on a parchment-lined cookie sheet & press flat w/ the bottom of a glass (slightly wet the glass if it’s sticking to the cookies).
– Bake for about 10 minutes, until bottoms are golden.
1 cookie: 80 cals, 7g fat, 15mg sodium, 4g carbs, 1g fiber, 1g added sugar, 2g protein
Eat as is or drizzle w/ a little melted chocolate.🍫 Crunchy edges, chewy center. OMYUM.
I tried making these but I ended up adding 1/2 cup of milk – the mixture as listed was not able to make formed cookies. Is the recipe missing any ingredients?

Hey Keri! Hope you loved these cookies! They are magic! There is no missing ingredient. Should hold together if the coconut oil is melted & if it’s crumbly use your hands to form a dough ball (heat of hands helps!) BUT…perhaps your almond or coconut flour was drier than mine…or the ginger wasn’t as juicy! Love your fix. Good work!
