Why Go Gluten-Free (GF)?
Going gluten-free is a diet change that has gained popularity in recent years. However, to those that may be asking what exactly is gluten, it is actually a protein that can be found in many grains including rye, barley, wheat, malt, and other grain derivatives.
Those with celiac disease need to maintain a gluten-free diet in order to prevent the inflammatory, immune reactions that come with ingesting gluten. Recent studies have shown that a low-gluten or gluten-free diet could possibly be helpful even for those without celiac disease or gluten allergies! This diet could reduce bloating and promote modest weight loss and digestive health.
How to Make GF Spiced Ginger Cookies
This recipe is really quite simple - both in terms of prep work and the amount of ingredients!
- Ensure that you’re getting gluten-free oats and baking powder. Although these are naturally gluten-free, these ingredients can often be cross-contaminated with products that do contain it.
- Making your own oat flour is really as simple as blending oats in a processor until fine! Now you have the base to mix with the rest of the dry ingredients.
- Prepare your wet ingredients in another large bowl and then combine together.
- After the dough is formed, form them into balls and make sure that you flatten them on the sheet - these cookies won’t spread out very much naturally.
- Bake, cool, and enjoy!
Store them in an airtight container to keep for a few extra days!
