Soft & Chewy Gingerbread Protein Cookies
If you’re in the soft-and-chewy camp, you’ve come to the right place. Unlike their snappy cousins, these sweet treats have a gingerly touch. And it’s not just their cloud-like texture and glowing protein profile. To create A-one ginger cookies, there are three feisty forms of ginger: fresh, ground and crystallized. In the end, you have a ginger cookie that’s bursting with flavor without breaking your teeth – and there’s nothing wrong with that.
1-1/2 cups gluten-free flour
1/2 cup, plus 1 scoop Designer Protein Vanilla Sunshine Organic Protein Powder
4-1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. fine ground sea salt
2/3 cup fine ground natural cane sugar
1/4 cup unsulphured molasses
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1-1/2 Tbsp. fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1 large egg, beaten
Zest of 2 lemons
1 cup crystallized ginger, finely minced
Dark Chocolate Drizzle (optional)
2 Tbsp. Designer Protein Vanilla Sunshine Organic Protein Powder
10 oz. dark chocolate chips
1 Tbsp. coconut oil
1/2 cup crystallized ginger, finely minced
Flaked sea salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, stir together flour, protein powder, ground ginger, baking soda and sea salt until well combined.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together sugar, molasses, coconut oil, egg and lemon zest until smooth.
- In two batches, fold flour mixture into wet mixture, stirring until there are no lumps. Be careful not to overmix.
- Fold in crystallized ginger to incorporate.
- Using a spoon or melon scoop, drop about 1 tablespoon of dough onto prepared baking sheet. Place dough mounds about 2 inches apart. Set in freezer for 5 minutes.
- Bake 12 minutes. At about the 8-minute mark, use a spatula to flatten dough balls into cookie shape. This will help them become chewier.
- Move cookies to cooling rack and let set 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the drizzle.
- In a double boiler, melt chocolate and coconut oil. Once smooth, whisk in protein powder until fully incorporated.
- Using a fork, drizzle chocolate over cooled cookies. Top with crystallized ginger and sea salt, if desired.
