Step 1

Measure and prep all ingredients.

Step 2

In a large bowl, add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, brown butter, molasses, eggs, fresh ginger, ground ginger, cinnamon, cloves, black pepper, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

Step 3

Mix until well blended.

Step 4

Using a wooden spoon, stir in the oat and almond flour. Mix for 1 minute. Stir in the crystallized ginger. The dough will be very soft. Refrigerate the dough for at least 1 hour, preferably overnight. 

Step 5

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350°F and prepare two cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls. Roll the cookie dough ball in the turbinado sugar. 

Step 6

Place the cookies 2-inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the cookies are crispy on the edges but soft and moist in the center. Slightly underbake the cookies for the best texture.

Step 7

Let cool before serving. Enjoy!
