Happy New Year! May 2019 be a year of increased understanding in how to best support your health nutritionally!
A question I am frequently asked by clients is, “What can I eat as a suitable ‘anti-Candida’ snack when I am out and about?”
The following recipe for Gingernut Cookies fits the bill perfectly. You can prepare them in less than 5 minutes, and then they take about 15 minutes baking time. The Gingernuts include ground pumpkin seeds in place of flour, making them a low-carb, nutrient-rich snack for any time of the day. It can also be a lot easier to eat 1 or 2 Gingernut cookies when you are out, compared to nibbling on seeds – trying not to drop any! This recipe obviously includes ginger, and I also added in some turmeric for its beneficial immune-supporting properties. As an alternative to these spices you can use ground cinnamon, nutmeg or mixed spice.
Any ground seeds will work for this recipe. Ground pumpkin works particularly well. For these photos I substituted 20g of ground pumpkin seeds with 20g of ground flax/linseeds.
You do need a food processor with a grinder attachment or a spice or coffee grinder to grind the seeds successfully. A variety of these can be found online or in many Bargain shops.
