Delicious, truly guilt-free cookies with the strong, tasty flavors of ginger, honey, and orange that blend like a party in your mouth! If your store does not carry fruit-based fat substitute, you can easily substitute pureed prunes, or prune baby food in an equal amount.

  • Place half of the oats, and half of the triticale into a blender or food processor, and grind into a fine powder. Transfer to a medium bowl, and combine with the remaining oats, triticale, all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

  • In a large bowl, mix together the fat substitute, honey, and sucrolose sweetener until smooth. Mix in the vanilla and orange zest. Add the dry ingredients, and mix until well blended. Finally, stir in the chopped candied ginger and cranberries. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets. Cookies should be spaced at least 2 inches apart.

  • Bake for 11 to 13 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are golden. Cool on baking sheets for at least 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

By looking at this recipe and hearing reviews of being dry. I decided to add an egg and some butter. Heres what I did: In one bowl I mixed 1 1/2 c flour with 2t ginger and 1/2t cinnamon. Also added 1/2t baking soda and 1/8t sea salt. In a separate bowl I mixed together 1 T honey 5T apple butter and 1/3c brown sugar(or coconut sugar)with 1 egg and 1/4c butter. Then I added the 1t vanilla and zest of 2 oranges. Then mix the dry and wet ingredients together. Then stir in 1/3c 1 or 2T of rolled oats. Then bake on greased cookie sheets for 11-13 minutes. The ginger and orange flavor are amazing! Read More

This recipe must be missing a liquid ingredient. When I mixed everything together it was too dry to even form a dough. I tried adding 2 eggs but the finished cookies were very dry and spongy. Read More

Not worth the effort. The dried cranberries added nothing but a strange texture. Read More
