Ginger nut Cookies

I'm on a cookie obsession right now, so I came up with these through a friend at uni yesterday. The great thing about going to a natural health food college is that everyone has epic food (and sometimes willing to share). So these are adapted from something similar she quickly recited to me. She seems to be similar to me though in chucking in and not measuring, but they came out good.
