Ginger Cookies - SIBO friendly

Uncategorized Aug 11, 2020
Are you currently treating SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) and looking to spice up your diet? These Ginger Cookies are a delightful little treat to help your gut healing journey a little more enjoyable.
Remember, that on the SIBO Biphasic Diet, you should limit the amount of nuts and honey you have per serve/day...So don't go crazy with the cookies, lol! 1 or 2 cookies per day should be fine, but see how well you tolerate them. If you also have a fungal overgrowth, you will want to switch the honey out with stevia. 
This recipe complies with Phase 1 (semi-restricted) & Phase 2 of the SIBO Biphasic Diet.
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • ½ cup almond butter
  • ⅓ cup raw honey
  • ¼ cup ghee 
  • ⅓ cup coconut milk (make sure there are no gums or thickeners - Pure Harvest is a good brand)
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tsp cinnamon
  • Thumb-sized piece of fresh ginger, pressed through a garlic crusher
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp salt
  1. Put all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix together using hand mixer or a large wooden spoon.
  2. Form dough into a log and roll up in a piece of baking paper and put in freezer for 30 min.
  3. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  4. Remove dough from freezer and slice into about 12 pieces.
  5. Cover a cookie tray with baking paper and then roll slices into small balls and press balls to flatten into disks.
  6. Bake for 20 min or until golden brown.
