Recipe Variations

  • Cassava flour and tigernut flour work really well together and are AIP friendly, however you could swap one for another flour, (tapioca or buckwheat flour). The cookies will be a different texture.
  • Try added a little nutmeg to the dough aswell. If you are not so keen on ginger, this can also be substituted for another spice

Recipe Notes

These cookies freeze well. I actually like then straight from the freezer, they are kinda chewy.
