Feeding the Funky Bunch: Gingernut Biscuits


I made a batch of these biscuits for play group last week they were a big hit. They have that gingerbread flavour that my kids love, but are a bit quicker to make than gingerbread people. Inspired by Quirky Cooking’s Crunchy Gingernut Cookies, these are a softer biscuit with a crunchy outside.

Gingernut Biscuits


  • 400g plain spelt flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp pink salt
  • 140g rapadura
  • 180g butter
  • 90g molasses
  • 1 egg


This recipe makes approx 45 biscuits. I often place half the dough in the freezer to defrost and bake when needed.

  1. Pre heat oven to 180C
  2. Place flour, baking soda, ground spices, salt and rapadura in TMX
  3. Mix 10 sec, Sp 6
  4. Add softened butter, molasses and egg
  5. Mix 30 sec, Sp 6
  6. Roll tablespoons of dough into balls, place on lined trays and flatten gently with two fingers
  7. Bake 10-12 minutes
