Health Benefits of Sourdough Cookies

But first, what is sourdough?

Our ancestors have been eating and enjoying sourdough, a nutritious food, as an essential part of their diet for over 6,000 years. Sourdough is made through sourdough fermentation, the process of fermenting grains with a probiotic culture.

Why are sourdough cookies gut healthy?

Sourdough, the ancient practice of fermenting grains with a probiotic culture, is an incredible tool that unlocks deep nutrition in the foods we love most. Sourdough cookies offer a plethora of benefits, thanks to their unique and natural fermentation process using sourdough starter. This slow and natural fermentation allows beneficial bacteria and wild yeast to work their magic, breaking down gluten and phytic acid, making the cookies easy to digest. As a result, nutrients like B vitamins, iron, and minerals become bio-available. The lower glycemic index of sourdough cookies ensures a steady and sustained release of energy (no energy crash!). But the goodness doesn’t end there – the fermentation process also synthesizes prebiotic fiber which promotes a healthy gut microbiome. All these benefits combined make sourdough cookies a delicious and gut healthy treat!

For rolling:


  1. First, melt coconut oil until it becomes liquid (warm but not hot).
  2. Now, add coconut sugar, pumpkin puree, egg yolk, sourdough starter, water, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and coconut oil to a medium bowl.
  3. Using a spoon, mix ingredients together until just combined.
  4. Now add flour and baking soda. Using the back of your spoon and/or your hands combine all ingredients until you form a dough. Do not over-mix.
  5. Place the dough covered in a small Tupperware or wrapped in plastic wrap. Be sure the dough is tightly sealed so it doesn’t become dry on the outside.
  6. Ferment the covered dough at room temperature for 6-8 hours. You can either bake right away or transfer the covered dough to the fridge until you’re ready to bake, whatever works best for your schedule.
  7. When you’re ready to bake, preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C).
  8. Divide and roll the cookie dough into 10-12 cookies, depending on how large you want your cookies to be. I like each cookie to weigh around 20-30g. Roll all sides in pumping spice sugar.
  9. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned on the sides.
  10. Remove from the oven and let cookies fully cool on the baking sheet. Enjoy!
  11. Store sourdough cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days or in the refrigerator for 6 days. To reheat, bake in a 350°F (177°C) oven for 5 minutes.

  • I always wondering how you bake 1 bagel and/or 2 cookies at a time. 🙂

    After fermenting and putting in the fridge for later how long is the dough good for? Could it go in the freezer to last longer? Would it need to thaw completely before baking?

    • Hi Andrea! For cookies, divide the recipe by 6 to get 2 cookies. And for bagels, divide the recipe by 6 for big bagels or 8 for smaller bagels. You can keep cookie dough in the fridge for a 4-6 but then I recommend the freezer so it doesn’t become to acidic. You can also place in the freezer right away, however thaw completely before baking!!
