Green Ginger Cookies

These can be made the day before they are served.
  • 2 cups spinach, kale, chard, or beet leaves (or some combination)
  • 1 cup oat groats (soaked 8 to 48 hours, drained, rinsed)
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger (or more, to taste)
  • 1 cup raisins (not soaked)
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds (not soaked, unless you're going to dehydrate the cookies)
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt (may also use dulse or celery salt)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg powder
  • 1 lemon's juice
  • 2 tablespoons coconut shreds (optional, do not use if you have digestive difficulty)
  1. Soak oat groats overnight in drinking water. 
  2. Drain oat groats and rinse thoroughly with drinking water.
  3. Pat oats dry with a clean towel.
  4. Put all ingredients into your food processor.
  5. If a chunky texture is desired, reserve two tablespoons of raisins and two tablespoons of oats to add after the initial blend.
  6. Blend until a smooth soft dough is formed. (Scraping down the sides of your food processor multiple times may be required.)
  7. If creating chunky cookies, add reserved oats and raisins and pulse ten to twenty times.
  8. Form cookies. These can be rolled into balls, or smashed into cookie-like shapes, or rolled and then cut into triangles or squares.
  9. If using coconut shreds, coat the outside of the cookie with coconut shreds.
  10. Put in the dehydrator or the fridge. Either will firm them and create a pleasant cookie.
  11. Dehydrator: Two to six hours at 105°F to 110°F. May use 120°F for the first hour without cooking your cookies.
  12. Fridge: Use wax paper between cookies if not using coconut shreds. Let sit for two to twenty-four hours.

It is my pleasure to bring you this ad-free, completely authentic and original website. This entire site is a one-woman operation. I, Raederle, do the HTML coding, the writing, the photography, the artwork and more. Then you come along, view my work and make it all worth while.
Except that sometimes your viewership isn't enough. Sometimes a gal has got to get paid. So now I've set it up so that you can contribute a small monthly sum (as little as $1 a month) in exchange for getting exclusive, exciting, bonus content from me.
Patrons give me something priceless for a small price-tag: appreciation. Ever heard of the five love languages? It took me a while to realize this, but there is a different form of "gifts" as a love language, and it is called financial support. That's right – it makes me feel loved. I hope that isn't too much honesty for you, because my patrons read more personal admissions from me than that!
