She used SACO Ginger Flakes to create these deliciously spiced treats. This is an example to show you how ginger flakes can be also used for baking and not just infused in hot water to make teas.

So, If you are running out of ideas on how to keep the kids entertained this weekend, get baking cookies.


  • 120g unsalted butter at room temperature

  • 85g Muscovado sugar

  • 6 tbsp SACO ginger flakes


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C

  2. Grind 3 tbsp ginger flakes into a powder in a pestle and mortar and leave the other 3 tbsp as finely chopped pieces, set aside

  3. In an electric mixer cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy for a few minutes

  4. Add egg, vanilla, and golden syrup and beat for 1 minute until incorporated, scrape sides of mixer down if necessary

  5. Add flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and beat only until combined

  6. Remove bowl from mixer and with a spatula fold in the oats, chocolate chips, and ginger until thoroughly combined

  7. Line oven tray with baking paper, mould mixture into round cookie shapes and bake in the oven for 12-14 minutes until cooked through and golden

  8. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool

  9. If not drizzling the chocolate on top, then store in an airtight container at room temperature for 1 week

  10. If drizzling cookies with chocolate, melt the remaining 200g chocolate chips in the microwave in 20-second increments, stirring after every 20 seconds until melted

  11. Place melted chocolate in a squeezy bottle and drizzle chocolate over cookies in a crisp cross pattern shape. If you don’t have a squeezy bottle a spoon works just fine too.
