It’s that time of year when ginger is everyone’s favourite spice and everyone is trying to incorporate it into their baked goodies. However, is there anything better than traditional ginger biscuit? Different flavours of biscuits might come and go but this one is definitely here to stay. These biscuits are spicy, sweet and crunchy, these are all the characteristics of a perfect ginger biscuit.  Serve these great classic biscuits with a non-traditional warm cinnamon milk. Believe us when we say, that this combination will surly elevate the flavour of these biscuits.   

What you will need

  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp Natural Herbs and Spices Himalayan Pink Salt
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 cup milk (use your favourite milk we won’t judge)
  • 4-6 tsp Natural Herbs and Spices Ground Ginger
  • 1 sachet Natural Herbs and Spices Build Smoothie Booster
  • 130g butter (at room temperature)
  • ¼ tsp Natural Herbs and Spices Ground Cinnamon
  • 105g treacle sugar
  • Honey to taste
  • 100g honey


Start off by preheating the oven to 180°C and lining two large baking trays with baking paper. Then in a large mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, Natural Herbs and Spices Pink Himalayan Salt, bicarbonate of soda, Natural Herbs and Spices Ground Ginger as well as the butter. Get your hands in there and rub butter into the flour until it resembles a crumbly mixture. We would suggest cut your butter into smaller piece to make this process slightly easier.

Then chuck in your sugar and drizzle in your honey, now mix together until a soft dough is formed. The dough is quite sticky and it is okay if it sticks to your hands. If it is too sticky just add in tiny bit of flour.

Scoop out spoonful’s of the dough and roll into balls and place well apart on your prepared baking trays. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the biscuits are beautifully golden brown. The biscuits should spread and flatten in the oven, but if they do not half way through your baking time use the back of a glass to slightly flatten the biscuits.

Meanwhile blend together all the cinnamon milk ingredients,which include the latest Natural Herbs & Spices Build Smoothie Booster in a blender, until well incorporated. Pour this flavourful milk into a saucepan, to warm through.   Allow the biscuits to completely cool and harden before enjoying with the warm cup of cinnamon milk.
