Having had such a wonderful sunny day on the boat yesterday, it is so wet today that thought I would have a go at making ginger nuts. I was quite pleased with how these tasted even though I only had sugar free maple syrup on board and I forgot to add the bicarb (must be getting old). It says in original non low carb version that it makes 3 dozen but I did half the recipe below and made 9 but they were quite thick! Original recipe was from Allrecipes website.
Makes: 3 dozen biscuits (so it says)
225g (8 oz) fibre flour (ultra fine)
110g (4 oz) granulated sweetener, I used Erythritol
3 tsp baking powder
1 heaped teaspoon ground ginger or however much you like
Cinnamon to taste (optional)
110g (4 oz) butter
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (I forgot it and they still seemed fine)
Small amount of warmed milk
2 tablespoons sugar free golden syrup, warmed in pan, then slightly cooled
1 Mix together flour, baking powder, sweetener, ginger and cinnamon.
2 Rub in butter
3 Add bicarbonate of soda
4 Add dry ingredients to syrup and add a little warmed milk a tsp at a time if needed to pull together into a ball
5 Make walnut sized balls of dough, place on a baking sheet, flatten a bit and bake at 180 degrees C or gas mark 4 for 15 to 18 minutes, or slightly less in a fan oven but check after 10 mins.
6 Biscuits are cooked when cracked on top and golden brown.
