Drain the ginger and slice it into fine matchsticks.
Rub some around the inside of a large baking tray and pre-heat the oven.
Put the flour, oats, sugar, ground ginger and bicarbonate of soda into a mixing bowl and stir thoroughly.
Add the yoghurt and oil and stir to make a soft dough.
Divide the dough into 16 pieces and roll each into a ball.
Transfer the balls of dough to the prepared baking tray.
Put a few pieces of ginger on the top of each dough ball and press down lightly.
Bake for 25 - 28 minutes.
Cool completely before storing in an airtight tin.

I've been looking for a decent gf cookie recipe for ages and I have finally found it! Crunchy on the outside, chewy in the middle, stores really well and even my husband likes them!!

I’m new to gluten free eating and so I have been looking for straightforward recipes that I can use for myself and gluten-eating friends. I tried these this morning. They are brilliant! I made 16 with no problems at all. They are crunchy outside with a slightly softer middle which is lovely. I will definitely be keeping this recipe to use again and the only change I will make is to use a little more ginger.

Great recipe. Didn't get as many biscuits as the recipe indicates but they have a lovely crunch. Even the gluten eaters asked me to make more!

After cooking to the instructions I cooked them for longer at a lower temperature to make them crunchy as they tasted a bit bready beforehand. Much smaller than pictured made about 10 the size of the picture also added much more stem ginger on top.

Very simple recipe to follow. Good taste but I found my biscuits were a lot smaller than the ones pictured so I think next time I would make 8 bigger biscuits rather 16 small ones. Also I think they should mention that you flatten them slightly as mine were still quite spherical post name.
