Recipe by gym tonic
Healthier version of the ginger cookie. I find these a bit dry, but I'm willing to trade a little dryness for a whole heap of unnecessary calories. You can tweak it where you like.
- 1 1⁄4 cups wholemeal self-rising flour
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- 1⁄4 teaspoon mixed spice (nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon etc)
- 1⁄4 cup applesauce
- 1⁄4 cup Splenda sugar substitute
- 1 egg white
- 1⁄4 cup sugar-free maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vinegar
