Oh Starry Night Ginger Cookies

Prep Time

30 minutes (plus 1 hour to rest)

Cook Time

8-10 minutes


Approximately 15 cookies


  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (slightly softened)
  • 1/4 maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut or brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup & 1 Tablespoon arrowroot flour
  • 1/3 cup & 1 Tsp coconut flour
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 Tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon bicarb soda


  • Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until combined. The texture should be nice and crumbly.
  • Next, roll the dough into a ball, wrap in cling wrap or baking paper and allow to sit at room temperature for about an hour.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Place the dough in between two sheets of baking paper and roll out to about 1/2 cm thickness.
  • Using a cookie cutter (or the open end of a glass) cut out the cookies and place them on the prepared baking tray. As you run out of free dough you'll need to roll it back into a tight ball, place it back between the baking paper and roll it out again.
  • Once all the dough has been cut out, place in the oven and cook for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 2 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
