Lately when I print out the recipes the headings don’t print dark enough. The picture, ingredients and instructions are dark but the rest can’t be read. It’s not my printer. It looks like you made a change recently with the format and I love the new look. Just need to be able to read it better.
Thanks for all you do!
Thank you for these great recipes! You often refer to using dates by cup. I’m wondering if you chop the dates before measuring or put them in a cup whole? I would think it makes a difference in the amount of sweetness they bring to the recipe. Thanks.
I put them in whole and just lightly press them into the measuring cup.
If I don’t have arrowroot flour or tapioca starch can I use cornstarch? These look delicious and my family loves your recipes. Thanks for such healthy creations!
Pretty sure it will work about the same.
Does it make a difference what kind of dates you use?
Jill can you use powdered ginger in this recipe?
Step 1 ginger powder, Step 2 fresh, diced ginger
Just a thought but maybe when using ingredients like dates, etc. give a weight in addition to cup measurements. Weighing really helps to me keep it consistent. And I’ll be making these cookies this weekend, yum!
Hi Jill. I just joined the site. I love what you guys do! Can you use date sugar in this recipe? If so, how much? Thanks for your help.
I’m sure you could but I’m just not sure on the amount. I don’t use date sugar very often. From researching a bit, it says that they would be used in a 1:1 ratio but I would probably use a bit less. Date sugar is just ground up dry dates so it seems like 1 cup would equal more than a cup of loose dates.
Made these and they were a delicious snack when I needed something sweet. I actually used crystallized ginger, which may not of been on plan but yummy. My 5 year old grandson gave them a thumbs up but wanted a gingerbread man. I told him I just made the heads this time. lol Thanks for the great recipe.
Mine came out delic. Not too time-consuming. Only thing I did wrong was bake them on my silicone baking sheet (instead of parchment…$$) and they tried to stick. I used a really thin spatula and was able to scrape them off w/o breaking.
Delicious flavor Jill! Thanks for sharing your great WFPB baking (and cooking) recipes with us! They’re so tasty!
I thought my cookies turned out a little on the dry side. Do you think it would be ok to add a little more water? Or maybe something else?
My sis and I love your work, Jill. Your recipes have changed our lives. These ginger cookies have become our favourite. Thank you for all the amazing work you are doing for the society.
Well searching for a molasses and Ginger Snap vegan recipe I Googled it and of course, your recipe came up. I trust yours more than any other I know online. My friends say they can’t find a good recipe so I’m going to make these and let them see what good taste like. Thanks so much as you continue to guide me through this vegan way of life. Nothing is impossible with you at the stove and oven.👍💕
Thank you so much Tricia! That means a lot to me. =)
Just made these Jill, absolutely delicious! I have a craving for ginger at the moment and there’s really hit the spot 😊
Thank you!! Made them. Perfect combo with my Roibos tea!!
Hi Jill. I would like to use these cookies for an ice cream sandwich and I was wondering if I could add some cacao powder to make them more chocolaty. Or if you have another chocolate cookie recipe that would act like a wafer for ice cream sandwich. I got a Ninja Creami and I am making WFPB ice cream to die for ! Thanks !
That actually sounds delicious. I’m pretty sure it would work just fine
