Ginger Chamomile Cookies

ginger chamomile teatime
Ginger Chamomile is my favorite after dinner or bedtime tea…

Today I decided to try it as a cookie!

1 cup almond meal
1 cup shredded coconut
~2/3 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup honey
1 egg
1 tsp Cinnamon


Mix with a fork into a thick, doughy batter. Add:

about 2/3 cup chopped candied Ginger. i like to candy my own ginger – i get local fresh young Ginger rhizomes and chop them, then put them in a mason jar and cover them with honey. in a month or two, candied Ginger! (store in the fridge)


Chamomile – pour dried chamomile into a strainer and sift to get the tiny bits. i used probably 2 or 3 tablespoons of tiny bits. (you can put the not-tiny bits back into the jar for tea!)

note: every time i make these, i increase the amount of Chamomile. These days i put in about 1/3 cup of Chamomile, and just reduce the almond meal a little bit.

Mix again. Spoon onto baking tray, or roll into a ball and flatten. Bake 350 for 20-30 minutes.

They’re delicious, low-carb, gluten and dairy free, and downright good for you!

    Old Friends’ Farm, in Western MA, grows it. Red Fire Farm grows it too sometimes! Usually you can find it in the fall at the farmer’s markets…
